Celtic Illumination Trinity Circle
A common representation of the Celtic trinity circle knot, also known as Triquetra, was three circles that wove through three interconnected loops, and various three-cornered shapes. Also known as a trinity knot, the design has been used throughout history to represent the Holy Trinity. The Celts also honored the Great Mother, a lunar goddess who was actually three personifications in one (three lunar phases and faces of the goddess).
The muse for this piece was the beautiful countryside of Ireland with its rich colors of greens, lavenders, violets and ambers amidst the blue of the sky. Surrounding the center medallion of the beveled trinity circle knot is a border of violet antique glass. The background that makes up much of the panel is a unique textured streaky glass in olive and sea green that resembles the gentle rolling hills of Ireland. A circle of antique glass in amber, crisp blue jewels, chartreuse green accents and small square bevels round out this magnificent panel. A vintage glass jewel in dark amber adds sparkling features to round out the overall jewel-like quality of the piece when illuminated by the sun's rays. Finished in a soft black patina.
Framed in zinc came for strength and durability.
