A year ago I visited Wales and discovered the Love Spoons with the knots and their symbolism. I fell in love with the spoons and bought four….. I was in awe to learn what they represent and how that tradition has been carried through the years and its’ connectivity to the Celtic Knots that represent Eternity.
The ancient Celts often used eternity knots to represent stages of man. Circles represent unity. Squares are shield knots, symbols of protection from spirits or malevolent influence. Interlaced units usually represent relationships, or emphasize the interdependence of mankind and nature.
According to George Bain, a 20th century Scottish Celtic art professor, Celtic knots that have a closed path, (no end or beginning), are considered to be a symbol of eternity, or represent the infinite.
Celtic knot with a Quaternary design - meaning it has four distinct sections within the design. These four sections represent the Four Directions, The Four Seasons, The Four elements. There are also legends that the four-cornered Celtic knot design was created as a symbol protection.
I used the Silhouette Cutout technique and I incorporated a clear transparency film in the back to allow the light enhance the beauty of the design and secure the cutout area. The card looks fabulous when light shines through onto the insert, shelf or wall. The card is tactile to hold and a real keepsake for the future.
The card is blank inside and any message can be written on the bottom part of the card.
