THREAD OF LIFE
18" x 23"

This traditional Celtic design is carved into bookmatched European spruce with paper and velvet backing. While artists of the Islamic world excelled at angular and geometric forms, the Celts had an equally sublime sense of design, gotten from Nature, which they expressed in their own unique manner with organically flowing lines. Both these aesthetics arise from, and speak to, a sense of continuity, wholeness and connectedness in the world. Except for the perimeter "fillers", this knot is made of only three intertwined lines.
