Celtic Art

Before I left for our southwest trip I was researching the Celtic art. Especially their knots. The symbolism within the Celtic knot is that all things are interconnected, women together. That means the good as well as the bad are woven into the knot. I wonder, if all things are intertwined, what was the thing that held the know together? I came up with the conclusion that it was faith.

Faith according to the online dictionary is: complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Faith is also, according to the online dictionary, a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof. Faith isn’t really a visual. It is just something to believe in and this belief allows us to imagine and create work that illustrates it; like the Celtic know.
