A popular motif in the art of the Celts is that of the spiral it implied endless movement. This symbol existed in the Neolithic period in Central Europe, and often was 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.
