Irish handcrafted Celtic brooch. Celtic pin handmade on the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland.
Celtic design from the Book of Kells.
Intricate Celtic knotwork on this circular Celtic pin gives good example by the Celts of using mythical reptiles as ornaments in their Celtic art.
Paul assumes this is a serpent.
Due to its unique characteristic represented by the cyclical shedding of its skin, the serpent was the Celtic symbol of rebirth and was widely referred as an immortal creature that came to life each year after hibernation, complete with a new skin.
The serpent is also both a phallic symbol and, paradoxically, a Celtic symbol of feminine power.
