Celtic knotwork art - Humanity & Kindness...
I created this colourful Celtic knotwork design on the theme of humanity and kindness and based on a traditional Celtic knotwork design -
I actually created it in the first weeks of lockdown (late-March 2020) for a book on kindness, 'Be Kind' by Tecassia Publishing - thinking about how we're all interconnected across the whole world and how we need to cultivate our kindness and patience towards each other so that we can all live together effectively, especially in those most difficult moments when we sometimes feel anything but patient and kind...
If anything, with the recent prominence in racial injustices coming to the forefront of our collective awareness, the artwork seems even more pertinent...
For me, the intertwining of the Celtic knotwork symbolises our interwoven lives - and the choice of a Celtic theme, whilst it's what I love to draw, emphasises even more that we're all joined in common humanity.
Whilst in the modern world, the Celtic style art seems to focus on British and Irish heritage, in its origin it's more diverse, spanning Europe - and with links back to an earlier Proto-Indo-European culture crossing continents.
The more that I explore Celtic legends, myths, stories, and folklore, the more struck I am by similarities in our earliest legends and myths, across the whole world, that seem to bring us all together as humans while providing joyous diversity through our cultural differences to our common human experience.
We're all interconnected and we must open our hearts with compassion, and summon the courage to face our mistakes - I don't pretend have the answers to our difficulties, but I do know that there is still so much for us all to learn and to put into action in order to be able to live together as equals - with respect, kindness, patience, and tolerance to create the fairer society we all need.
Here's how I created the artwork digitally from my drawings...
