Candle trio on bob table

Aesthetically, there’s often something inherently satisfying about trios, threesomes, triads.

One of Sicily’s ancient names is Trinacria, referring to the island’s triangular shape. The word is a riff on the Greek τρισκέλιον (triskelion), and is portrayed today as a face strangely framed by three bent (human) legs, a visual riff on three-legged tables that ran about in the Iliad (if WikiPee is correct).

    Loved the triskelion site. Might have to incorporate some triskelions in a quilting design, someday.
