Lugh's Knot Torc Bangle
Lugh was the most honoured of the Irish gods. He was renowned for his multitude of talents and skills. As symbols of continuity, timelessness and eternity, knotwork and interlaced designs represent eternal spiritual development; life, death and rebirth, all points on a line without beginning or end. Knotwork is also representative of the connection between all of Creation, and is the supreme symbol of love and friendship.
Gods and Goddesses of Celtic Mythology were frequently shown wearing Torcs. They were a sign of nobility, strength, power, high social status, and were awarded to warriors for great achievements in battle. Made from intertwined metal strands usually in gold or bronze, and often with animal heads at both ends. In Celtic mythology the Serpent or Snake represents rebirth, vitality and reproduction. Legend has it that they hold the secret knowledge of the earth.
