THE SPIRAL – THOUGHT TO REPRESENT THE SUN
The spiral pattern is one of the most common in nature, from snail shells to whirlpools to entire galaxies. It is also one of the oldest patterns created by humans, with evidence of rock carvings throughout the world, some dating back tens of thousands of years. So it is not surprising that it features prolifically in Celtic culture. In fact, the spiral is the oldest symbol in Celtic culture. In Celtic belief it is thought to represent the sun or the radiation of ethereal energy.
The symbol of the spiral in various forms can be found on carvings throughout Europe
where the Celts travelled. This has led to a belief that the symbol could also represent migration, perpetual movement. The Celts were travelling tribes and this theory matches up with other migratory tribes who used the same symbols thousands of miles away. There is also a link to water. The spiral occurs naturally in the form of waves and other cultures have used the spiral to depict water. Also related to migration, some of the spiral carvings in Scandinavia are thought to represent the stars and their positions in the sky.
