Hand made 3 faced stone head inspired by The Corleck Head - Early Iron Age, 1st – 2nd century AD 3 faced stone head found in Drumeague, Co. Cavan Ireland 1855 

The head is often taken to represent an ‘all-knowing  Celtic god’, who can see all dimensions of reality.

Until the late-nineteenth century, Corleck Hill, in the Co. Cavan, was the site of a Lughnasa festival held on the first Sunday of August. Lughnasa was one of the great quarterly feasts of the old Irish year, and it also retained millennia-old memories of the Celtic god Lugh. In the context of the Lughnasa festival, the head may represent the old god Crum Dubh, who was buried for three days with only his head above ground, so that the young Lugh could temporarily take his place. 

Hole for incense.
