The History of Knots and Spirals
The infinite nature of the Celtic knot leads most people to ponder the endlessly cycling and timeless essence of our human spirit. Some might even wear these knots so emblematic of strong eternal life to fend off illness or threatening incidents. Various types of Celtic knots include the Triquetra the Quaternary and the Dara. Spirals have also played an influential role in Celtic symbology. Single spirals often suggest energy radiating from a central core and in the process an expansion of awareness and understanding of the universe. This expansion can enhance the balance between an individuals inner and outer existence.
