Artwork Description

A Celtic goddess from the Welsh Mabinogion, Arianrhod keeps the Silver Wheel of stars, symbol of time, kama and reincarnation. She is a mother aspect of the ancient triple Goddess, also associated with beauty and fertility.

I designed the knotwork myself based on a twelve point circular grid - to represent the turning of the twelve months of the year. The continuous knot also represents the flow of life, ever interweaving and changing form in an eternal pattern.

This is lovely, and I simply adore the mix of knowledgeable symbolism mixed with talent.

Art at its best.
