This Celtic handbag has etched and painted on the front a Celtic knot design and the Deer jaw bone has been engraved, painted and sealed a Celtic knot design and the Triskele.
The Triskele symbol, otherwise known as the Triskelion, is a trilateral symbol consisting of three interlocked spirals. Widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols in existence, it appears on the Newgrange kerbstones, which date from approximately 3200 BC. Triskeles feature prominently in both ancient and modern Celtic art, as they 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.
On the closure flap burned into the leather is an Ogham inscription that says, “Celtic”. Inside the handbag is another smaller pocket that fastens closed with a Deer antler button. The shoulder strap is natural fiber rope braided then wrapped in leather for extra durability and comfort when using. All the hemp stitching is sealed inside and outside for long life and all weather use.
