The Newgrange Keepsake Urn – Lough Blue
This Newgrange Keepsake Urn
was developed after families asked for smaller ceramic Urns so that each family member could cherish their loved one in their own home. Family members have told me that there is great comfort in each sibling having a similar Urn.
The Newgrange Keepsake Urn design was inspired by the Ancient Irish Celtic Tri spiral symbol
. This particular design is the interpretation of the Newgrange Triskele.
The Triskele gained popularity in its use within the Celtic culture from 500BC onwards and can be seen on the entrance stone to Newgrange
, a 5000-year-old Passage Tomb
famous for the Winter Solstice illumination.
There is no definite meaning behind the triskele, and symbolists believe it reflects many areas of culture from the time, the most popular being life-death-rebirth.
Triskeles evoke the Celtic interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky (and all their interconnections). The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial.
Another theory suggests that the triskele represents reincarnation, as it consists of one continuous line that could be analogous to the unbroken movement of time. In this context, it represents the process of constantly moving forward from pre-birth, life, and death, each connected for eternity.
This keepsake urn is available in different glazes each hand-poured and handmade individually, so that each keepsake is slightly different from the others. The colors are earthy so they represent the timeless beauty found in the nature of Ireland and its seas.
