Ring designs are common to the art of all cultures, and thought to originate in the early use of ringed bracelets and anklets worn for personal adornment. Three interlocking rings were also common to early Christian symbolism, where they represented the Holy Trinity. This three ring design is a mosaic rendering of a traditional Japanese design motif often found in textile decoration and family crests. Here, more than 12,000 inlaid pieces of wood are assembled into a stepped surface reminiscent of Gothic architecture. In bookmatched yellow cedar with acid-free paper backing.
