On this, the celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, I wish you all …
A world of wishes at your command
God and his angels close at hand
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in you heart.
Not being Irish myself, although I do admit to adding an O’ before my last name every March 17th and enjoying a pint or two of green beer, I do have some Celtic heritage from the other side of the pond (Wales and Scotland). And I believe it’s that Celtic heritage that has fed my love of the Celtic knot. There is just something about the never-ending knot that inspires me.
I love the puzzle of it, the romance of it and the symbolism of it.
One of my current projects (which I hope to be posting more about soon) has a small carving that resembles a Celtic knot which was one of the features that drew me to it.
Here are some other inspiration pics I’ve uncovered ….
