Triskellion: this ancient symbol “The Spiral of Life” beloved of the Celts has Graeco-Roman roots and may evoke in the minds and hearts of modern magickal practitioners the triplicities of Maiden, Mother and Crone, land, sea and sky, past , present and future and many other sacred triads.
Celtic Knotwork: historical artstyle from early medieval times, mainintaining a steady strand interweaving. Celtic Knotwork style is one of the most intricate aproaches to this kind of ornamentation, often, as in this piece, incorporating zoomorphs into the knotwork.
Zoomorphic Bird: considered messengers from the spiritual realms like Norse High God Odin's two ravens, Huggin and Muninn, birds are thought to symbolize transformation, freedom, power, and freedom because they can fly in the air, walk on the earth and some swim in the sea.
Green Man:Welcome the Green Man! Foliate head images surrounded with leaves and greenery were central to Celtic cultures. Trees were held sacred and forest groves were perceived as the dwelling place of Gods, Goddesses, and a wide variety of Nature Spirits. Disappearing and returning year after year, century after century, enacting themes of death and resurrection, these Nature Spirits of the forest symbolize fertility and the cycles of birth, death and rebirth, the ebb and flow of life and creativity.
Dragons: Call upon the Magickal Powers of the Dragon for strength, to transform a situation, for success and good fortune, and for the accomplishment of your Will. The Dragon is a symbol of primordial power. It is master of all elements: fire, water, air and earth. As a spirit guide, it makes a powerful ally in our daily life with its amazing restorative and potent qualities.
Salamanders: In Greek and Roman myth the Salamander lived in the very heart of all fire (and as such, took on the representation of fire itself). The Salamander of medieval superstition was a creature in the shape of a man, which lived in fire It was described by the ancients as bred by fire and existing in flames. The heraldic signification of the Salamander was that of a brave and generous courage that the fire of affliction cannot destroy or consume. In the animal symbolism of the Ancients, Salamanders may be said to represent the element of Fire and are known as elemental beings called fiery Salamanders. Sometimes you might even notice an outline of a fiery salamander in a campfire or perceive a flash or a trail of rainbow iridescence appearing as, well, a Salamander or like shape. Like all of elemental life, The Fiery Salamanders are attracted to joyous and loving energies. Elemental life can bridge or hasten our understanding and attunement with Nature. In Magick, Salamanders are believed to be the spiritual beings that inhabit and control the element Fire, and it is through their activities that fire exists. There are many family branches of salamanders each differing in size, appearance and dignity, and in folklore they were ruled over by a magnificent flaming king being called Djin. Salamanders are the strongest and most powerful of all the elementals having the ability to extend or diminish their size as needed.
