Add to Cart:

A very detailed Brass wall plaque in the shape of the Three Legs of Man. Legend attributes the origin of the Three Legs to Manannan Mac Lir, the Celtic Sea God and ruler of Mann. He was out walking one day on Barrule when he saw Norse warships in Peel Bay. He changed into the shape of three legs and rolled down the mountain like a wheel to the river which fed in to the bay. Manannan tricked the invaders into believing a huge Manx fleet was sailing towards them by making little boats out of the sedge grass lining the riverbank and with his magical powers changing them into great ships of war. The Latin motto associated with the Three Legs symbol:- Quocunque jeceris stabit - “Whichever way you throw me, I stand” Approx 6" across at widest point
