Re-create the glories of Celtic art with this collection of intricate knotwork. First used hundreds of years ago, Celtic knots were great for filling in borders and empty spaces in illuminated manuscripts, sculptures, and jewelry. (They rarely appeared by themselves.) Stunning in their simplicity, the knotted patterns are made up of single paths that never end except within themselves.
This collection invites colourists of all ages to enhance sixteen traditional knotwork designs with colours of their choice. Some serpentine motifs incorporate animal forms; all display the distinctive spirals and weaves of Celtic design. When coloured with crayons, paints, or other media and placed near a source of bright light, these intriguing images will glow with all the luster of stained glass art.
