The Newgrange Tri Spiral dates back some 5,000 years and is probably Ireland's most mythical symbol. This ancient stone carving was uncovered at Newgrange , Co. Meath having been buried for centuries.
Each spiral represents the male, the female and the child and their life path. It had a deep significance in the Stone Age era in their quest to understand the mysteries of the existence of the Universe.
Today the Tri Spiral continues that fascination and leads us to believe that life is all too short but very precious. One must do their utmost to bring love, laughter and friendship to those who we love and cherish because who knows what the future may hold. It is said in the fables "it brings good fortune to the wearer".
