Celtic Wheel of Life Knot Pendant

Taken from the pages of the Book of Kells (circa 825) AD and Pictish symbol stone crosses of the 7th century. This Celtic interlace pattern is known as a Wheel of Life because it is symmetrical both vertically and horizontally. It represents heaven on earth, the four directions; 4 seasons and elements. The continuous loveknot which makes up the pattern is symbolic of the dance of life, stepping left and right. Interestingly, the Wheel pattern of a cross in a circle is found in every culture and represents the sun or a heavenly body. In Celtic designs it is know as a Celtic Cross. The Book of Kells is an illuminated bible which incorporated ancient Celtic symbols into the texts artwork.
