The triple spiral in the end of the passage along with the light of Venus and the bowl in the northern alcove lead me to believe that Reincarnation ceremonies could have been possible.See "Uriel's machine". Venus being the star associated with the return of life and a birthing bowl at the same place can only suggest this one scenario. The Druids believed in reincarnation, was there some connection?.
Those "U" shaped lines could be a track of Venus over many months and represent the visible part of the orbit of Venus around the Sun. The symbol is used in the mirror image to represent evening and morning star positions." />

POSSIBLE EXPLANATIONS FOR ROCK ART AT NEWGRANGE
The markings and so called doodlings on the walls of Newgrange have defied explanation from the time they were discovered. If this structure is a passage grave then we can never know exactly what they mean but if this structure and many like it is a telescope then these markings take on a whole new light.
The triple spiral, used for centuries by celtic and Irish peoples can be explained as a two dimensional model of a three dimensional track the sun apparently takes through the skies over a full year. This three dimensional track is opened at a point that represents the equinox and flattened onto a piece of rock. The three dimensional model must be imagined because half is hidden at night and proves that ancient man knew of a spherical earth.
Obviously because of the positions of some of these markings it leads me to think that astronomy was taught here and these rocks are the blackboards and practice books before being erected into the structures that stand there now.
The light box with it's eight "X's" will allow Venus to be viewed before the rising sun at the winter solstice every eigth year.
