New Grange tri-spiral

The tri-spiral design on orthostat C10 in the back recess of the chamber at New Grange is probably the most famous Irish Megalithic symbol.

The design is often called a triple spiral; however archaeologists call it the three-spiral stone.

The tri-spiral is often referred to as a Celtic design, however it was carved about 2500 years before the Celts reached Ireland.

The tri-spiral design is quite small in size at 30x28cm (12x11 inches) which is less than one-third the size of the similar design on the entrance stone.
