MEANING: The Triquetra has had many incarnations of meaning over the years. Here are a few we know of:
Pagan/Wiccan: Originally it is believed, to the early Celtics, the three arcs represent the three aspects of the ancient Celtic Goddess; Maiden, Mother, Crone. With the circle woven through the three arcs, the meaning moves toward, joining or unity.
In the Fifth Century, as the Christian Church moved into Celtic areas, this symbol was adapted to the Christian Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
The symbol of protection to modern Wiccans.
A triquetra is one of the four symbols on the cover of the Led Zeppelin album, Led Zeppelin IV, where it is used as the personal symbol of John Paul Jones.
Thanks to the TV series, “Charmed,” the Triquetra became popular from its use on the cover of the “Book of Shadows” meaning the “three” are one.
THE CARVING: The door is carved from a single piece of western red cedar. The back of the cabinet is keyholed for hanging on the wall, the bottom is smooth and edges rounded for being placed on a table top. The cabinet can be ordered with 1 or 2 shelves and hinged on the left or right. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.
