Celtic knots are complete loops without any beginning or end, this unending style is called pure knots. The knots vary from simple to complicated ones. The use of only one thread highlights the Celts’ belief in the interconnectedness of life and eternity. They strongly believe in the symbolism reflected in Celtic knot works from the old Celtic myths and legends. In earlier times, the elaborate designs were mainly used for decorative purposes. However, overtime, people began to come up with their own interpretations, and began to understand the designs at a deeper level. They saw the constant interlacing as the physical and the spiritual crossing of paths, expressing permanence, and the endurance of life, love and faith. Celtic knot works were created for secular and religious purposes too. They were meant for decorative aims to ornate Bible manuscripts and monuments like Celtic crosses and jewellery. The early Celts began this legacy of knot works that consisted of animals and spirals, drawn with such detail that they became known as the “work of angels”. Each knot meant a virtue like strength or love.
