TRISKELE is a freestanding sculpture created by local artist and sculptor, Foster Willey.  The three interlocking spirals are a symbol of eternal life and can be found in centuries of Celtic art.

The sculpture serves as the focal point for Robert Trail Library and is an expression of the strong Irish connections in the Rosemount community.



Foster Willey is a sculptor and public artist who maintains his studio in St Pau, MN.  He has participated in numerous design settings including large-scale works for local municipalities.

More examples of his work can be found at
