Celtic Sailors Knot
This knot made from two inter-twined ropes dates back to the ancient times when the Celtic sailors who spent long months at sea would remember their sweethearts and weave rope mementos for them. The sailor’s knot is actually two entwined knots and so, symbolizes harmony, friendship, affection and deep love. Denoting the union of two into one, the knot stands for the blending of individual lives into one with a common purpose. Though quite simple to tie, it is one of the strongest knots there can be and is representative of a bond that grows stronger with time and under pressure.
Please note: This piece is for hanging inside. Mahogany that is left to the elements will not fair well. Beautifully crafted one at a time, each wood carving starts from an original hand drawing. Every step of the carving and painting process is done by hand with great attention to detail and as a finishing touch a French paste wax is buffed into the finish until a rich luster is obtained.
