This simple Celtic Triquetra cross stitch design has a bold impact on those who look at the design more closely.
Triquetra is a Latin word which means "three corners" - and to those of the Christian faith, it has come to symbolize the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
To those of the pagan doctrine, the Triquetra came to symbolize the three goddesses in one - mother (fertility) , maiden (innocence) and crone (wisdom).
In Viking culture, the Triquetra is frequently observed as three interlocking "vesicae piscis".
Design size is 4.7 x 4.6 inches when stitched on 16 count fabric.
