Embraced

The symbolism of the circle can be traced through ancient history and all cultures, and is usually connected with nature and the concept of being inclusive or continuous. Our lives are reflected in nature's life cycle and the circle – both physical and spiritual. The Celtic knot, often referred to as the mystic or endless knot, draws on this inspiration by having neither a beginning nor an end. Overall, it gives a sense of continuity, while its interlacing segments suggest being interconnected. The Celtic knot, like the circle, is all encompassing – not bound but embraced.
