Multi-Coloured Celtic Spiral Picture Pendant
Multi-Coloured Celtic Spiral Picture Pendant. Very 60's. Celtic Spirals were symbols of the Cosmos to the Celts. Newgrange is a Celtic monument located on the Hill of Tara, in the Boyne Valley in Ireland's Ancient East. Once a year at dawn, on Midwinter's Day, the winter solstice, at around four and a half minutes after sunrise, if there are no clouds in the sky to obstruct the sun, the sun shines down the 'roof-box' of the Neolithic passage graves of Newgrange, moving gradually up the passage and illuminates the floor of its main chamber, some 18 metres (about 59 feet) away, deep within the monument. Outside the Celtic monument of Newgrange is a Large Celtic Triple Spiral carved into stone.
