The Celts occupied most of present day Eastern Europe, Greece, Spain, Northern Italy, Western Europe, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. A race whose customs and literature were preserved through oral tradition - Celts are remembered as warriors. The courage of their warriors and their stories inspired exceptional visual and poetic art through the centuries....
The Celts believed strongly in the interconnectedness of all life, and their interlaced patterns along with knots reflected this belief. Celtic knots or Celtic interlace are ornamental patterns that were used to decorate Bible manuscripts, monuments and jewelry. Knotwork tradition in manuscript painting possibly came to Ireland in the middle of the 7th century in manuscripts illuminated by Coptic monks from Egypt or Syria . The style spread from Ireland to Scotland, Wales and Northumbria, and with missionaries of the Celtic Church, to Europe. Viking raiders later appropriated some of the designs and added animals within the interlace.
The ever popular claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring that often includes knots within the design and was first produced in the 17th century. The heart represents love, the crown loyalty and the clasped hands are for friendship. The three qualities that form all lasting relationships.
