English Pewter Spiral of Life Bowl and Spirals Pewter Spoon
Step back in time... with our stunning circular pewter spirals bowl and spoon set, based on the beautiful prehistoric stone carvings found all over Europe that pre-date both Stonehenge and the great pyramids of Giza. We looked specifically at the spiral carvings on the entrance stone at Newgrange in Ireland.

Newgrange Spiral meaning
Spirals are one of the more common forms of British Neolithic art and the triple spiral (or triskele) is often called the 'Spiral of Life'.
It denotes the "three realms" - land, sea and sky, the cycle of life, death and rebirth and personal growth, human development and spiritual progress.
It is a positive ancient symbol representing eternity, change and growth; the very essence of life.
The spirals bowl is 8 cm (3.1”) wide and the matching small spoon is 7.2 cm (2.8”) long.
Our Spiral of Life bowl and spoon set is packaged in a black presentation gift box with care instructions.
