Purple-Mauve n' Blue Celtic Triskele Patch
Purple-Mauve n' Blue Celtic Triskele Embroidered Iron-On Patch. Triskeles are spirals, and 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 Midwinters 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. Circular Patches are about 3.125 inches (8 cm) in Diameter. Although this patch is Iron-On, it is best to sew it on as, if ironed onto clothes, it may come off in the wash.
