Pounced ‘triss – kell’, it is one of the oldest religious symbols in the world. Its not surprising that every possible spelling of its name is in common use. Also called a Triple spiral, Trispiral and Triskelion.
Creating a ‘real’ Triskell, with even spirals, a center of gravity and mass is quite a task because it has three beginnings and must be ‘rolled up into itself’, which is a counter intuitive process. For 95 percent of the process the whole thing looks like a shapeless mess. To my knowledge this is the only kinetic Triskell design in existence. I find the act of making a Triskell a deeply spiritual experience.
