The Celtic spiral is a dynamic and popular symbol, indicative of endless movement and in use from the Neolithic period (circa 5000 BC). Bronze craftsmen continued to use the pattern during the Bronze Age, though more flamboyant and flatter spiral patterns were favoured. This symbol was often depicted as three spirals, known as a ‘triskelion’. The tripartite styling of the spiral was less common in the Bronze Age, but the spiral itself was nonetheless pervasive.
