This piece was inspired by fine 'Celtic styled' Knotwork designs in the Book of Kells and other early Christian manuscripts; various forms of triple knot patterns feature prominently as symbols of the Trinity, an idea which was common to pre-Christian Celtic beliefs as well as to the early Church.-
This design is part of our Celtic Knotwork Collection. Knotwork is probably the best known and most familiar style of Celtic design, but in fact it was a late development in Celtic Art, adopted by the Celts from Eastern countries, then developed and elaborated by Celtic Christian monks from the 7th Century onwards. The intertwined patterns of never-ending lines appealed to the Celts, symbolising their ideas of eternal life and the intricate relationship of humanity with both the divine and natural worlds.
