It's the symbol of the Isle of Man. Called I think the three legs of man.

ADRIAN said...

Forgot to say, I've never seen one with a face. So it may be the three legs of wherever you found it!
I.O.M. has the oldest parliament in the world and lies in the Irish sea just off Liverpool.

That is a triskelion and the one you've got in the picture is properly called a Sicilian triskelion. Please check this out for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triskelion :-)

It looks like me when Edward is pulling me down the street after a squirrel.

Janet said...

Something medical??

Sara said...

It looks a little feminine to me and, I must admit, the first thought that came to mind was "she's a leggy broad". I wonder what a psychologist would say about that...
