Bronze Age Spectacle Pendant.
ca. 900-700 B.C.
A beautiful example of a Bronze Age spiral pendant. It is comprised of a single length of bronze wire, crafted to form two tightly coiled horizontal spirals. The spirals are connected by a loop and sit perfectly in line next to each other.
Although widely used in earlier civilizations, the spiral pattern was a popular Celtic symbol, indicative of endless movement. The double spiral, in particular, is thought to signify balance. Its meaning is sometimes further extended, suggesting the link to the horse goddess Epona, to whom the double spiral was a sacred symbol. She was in fact invoked during the equinox when day and night are of equal length.
