Seax Triquetra

The fact that the triquetra rarely stood alone in medieval Celtic art has cast reasonable doubt on its use as a primary symbol of belief. In manuscripts it was used primarily as a space filler or ornament in much more complex compositions, and in knotwork panels it is a design motif integrated with other design elements. Celtic art lives on as both a living folk art tradition and through several revivals. This widely recognized knot has been used as a singular symbol for the past two centuries by Celtic Christians, Pagans and agnostics as a sign of special things and persons that are threefold.

Excellent work with this piece, very solid and well made, but the little things seem to be rushed. For example, I chose the wire wrapped handle option, and while did come as requested, the wire wrap seems to have been done in a hurry and is not wrapped tightly enough. You can see in between the wire thread and that brings the entire piece down a notch or two.
