This Week’s Theme: X-cellence.

When rotated 45° an “X” becomes a cross as in today’s MotD of this celtic-styled cross found on a gravestone in St Columba’s Stewarton, East Ayrshire, Scotland and photographed (and posted on wikimedia) by Rosser1954 . While simple-looking in design, celtic trinity knots can be tricky to draw. They definitely add a higher energy of infinite flow, to this engraving.

About Celtic & Trinity Knots from Claddaugh Design:

The knots originated in the 3rd and 4th B.C. and were used to denote faith, declare love and unity and protect against evil spirits. They also represent infinity and eternity because Celtic knots do not contain beginnings or ends.

…The Trinity Knot was originally designed to honour the Mother, Maiden and Crone of the Neo-pagan Triple Goddess, which represents the three life-cycles of a woman in relation to the phases of the moon. It modern times, it has come to represent the Father, Son and Holy Spirit of the catholic trinity.
