3 Fold Spiral

Celtic Triple Spiral
 
The most familiar to us are probably the classical, or Cretan, pattern dating from around 1500 B.C. and the pattern from Chartres Cathedral in France, dating from the 13th century. Two precursors to these labyrinths are the spiral or triple spiral found on passage graves in Western Europe dating from at least 3000 B.C. and the meander pattern found on pottery shards in Eastern Europe dating from as early as 14,000 B.C.
