Triskele cross by Gestalt-creator Triskele cross by Gestalt-creator
I have tried to recreate the original Celtic triskele cross in 3D. And have made some modifications :).

Hope you liked.

Historical note:
The triskele was an ancient Celtic symbol which adorned the most sacred places. Representing the trinity of life, it also represents the Goddess in all her forms - maiden, mother, and crone.

Thank's!

You are right.Name comes from the Greek τρισκέλιον or τρισκελής, and mean "three-legged".
But this is his real name from "101 Celtic Crosses" book which i was refering to.
