Twin serpent bangle, Bronze
Solid bronze open bangle with embossed twin serpent heads design.
According to classical writers, the Celts wore torcs into battle. Both neck and arm torcs have been discovered in Britain and Europe and it is thought that they marked a person of high status, such as a warrior or chieftain. In Celtic lore, the serpent is the image of light, life and divine wisdom. Coming from deep within the earth, it was believed to hold secrets and be the guardian of hidden riches, metals, medical cures and esoteric knowledge.
