Celtic knots or triquetas are the most popular in history and Celtic culture represent a unique emblem for artisans and jewelers today. They began to appear around 450 A.D. They are mostly used by artisans and monks in order to decorate their manuscripts as in the famous Book of Kells.
The original meaning of many of the designs have been lost due to the lack of reliable written documents and many were invented so discover the real meaning is very difficult and in some cases almost impossible. However, other historians agree in certain theories regarding the design of these known symbols:
The knots represent eternity in essence, the eternal nature of the soul, uninterrupted life cycle of birth and rebirth with its endless reincarnations, since these symbols for the Celts had no beginning or end. Interlacing knot design with its solid lines, they could symbolize the process of this eternal evolution experienced by the soul in its continuous reincarnations to reach the goal of perfection.
Each of the Celtic knots alter its meaning in the form and amount of linked nodes. Complex nodes represent the way in which all things are interconnected.
Many researchers say that the Celtic knot could represent a powerful talisman of good luck with what was often seen as decoration in Celtic homes because these people believed in the sanctity of the place. Moreover, it is said that they used to offer these adorned with mystic knots to symbolize best wishes of longevity or luck gifts.
According to George Bain, a prestigious professor of Celtic art, Celtic knots personified heritage so that certain nodes identified certain Celtic families as in certain clans of the Highlands. That would mean that for every family could have a single knot to designate each lineage, while define certain values or qualities that would emphasize the prestige as the knot that question.
They also often see knot work shaped like an oval, which is the shape of an egg. The oval has something to do with generative creativity and birth and is said to symbolize the infinite, another element essentially Celtic.
