Battersea Shield Celtic Pendant
Originally used for ceremonial purposes, the Battersea Shield was created in approximately the third century B.C.E. and was found in the Thames River in 1857. The design interweaves animal or bird faces with womb-like features around a central circle to indicate a focusing of primal creative forces.
The emphasis on the numeral four suggests a connection with the four directions.
Because of its ceremonial purpose the Celtic shield was likely created as a projection of both spiritual protection, power and blessing. The shield represents a high point in the development of Celtic art.
