Bronze Twin serpent torc bangle.
A bronze open bangle with embossed twin serpent heads designs at each end.
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.
