CELTIC SCULPTED SKULLNobleWares Image of Celtic Sculpted Skull 7594 by YTC Summit 7594 by YTC SUMMIT
The skull was a pervasive and powerful symbol to the ancient Celts. Its form held symbolic meaning concerned with very deep themes; transience, power, spirit and portals of new understanding to name a few. This gorgeous skull is decorated in knotwork design, swirling serpents, and features two Triskele carved eyes. Constructed in quality cold-cast resin, the skull resembles real bone and is enhanced even further with hand painted tonal detailing, giving the piece an aged look while accentuating the intricate Celtic designs that are sculpted in relief. The base is lined in felt to protect any display surface.

Celtic culture viewed the head or skull to be the seat of power. Some texts point to the skull as the house of the soul. Archeological findings show us the Celts tossed skulls into sacred wells as offerings, yet sacred wells are not the only place ritualistic skull symbols pop up in Celtic tradition. We see carvings of heads used to decorate doorways and hallways of ancient ceremonial grounds and sanctuaries. These people were fascinated with the idea of openings. Doorways, gateways, orifices - if it has an opening, the Celts seemed to be completely drawn in. Moreover, there are major sensorial openings in the skull, signifying a progressive dance between banal and cosmic, ultimately birthing a new direction in perception.
