CELTIC SUNWHEEL CROSS Double Faced Amulet Pendant Necklace

$39.95

A sun cross or wheel cross, an equilateral cross inside a circle, is frequently found in the symbolism of prehistoric cultures, particularly during the Neolithic to Bronze Age periods. The actual significance of these symbols in the prehistoric period is not known, but from their ubiquity and apparent importance the symbols have been adopted in various schools of Neopaganism, esotericism and occultism.

In the prehistoric religion of Bronze Age Europe, crosses in circles appear frequently on artifacts identified as cult items. The wheel appears as a solar motif in Celtic mythology, presumably associated with Taranis, e.g. on the Gundestrup cauldron, and at an altar to the sun god at Lypiatt, Gloucestershire.

In Wicca and other Neopagan religions the sun cross most commonly represents the sun and the four quadrants the wheel of the year, i.e. the four seasonal cycles of the year.

This heavy high quality antiqued brass plated (over a lead and nickel free base metal) CELTIC SUNWHEEL CROSS measures approximately 40 x 40 mm, features a double faced design, and comes on your choice of a 20", 24" or 28" heavy weight antiqued bronze plated chain fitted with lobster claw clasp.
