Celtic Knot

Celtic Knot
Endless Knot
Unicursal Knot
 
Of all of the endless (or unicursal) knots that we do, the Celtic knot, one of the first, is the one with no meaning! There is no evidence to indicate that this knot had any specific philosophical or religious significance beyond perhaps the most obvious: that being the capability of humans to produce intricate work, which is itself reflective of the intricacy of natural forms. Celtic knots have been found in Irish pre-Christian archeological sites of 450 ACE and maybe earlier.
