The Endless knot design symbolizes the Celtic belief that two parallel worlds exist and share a common boundary. In the places where the two chords cross, souls of the deceased and living people are able to pass from one world into the other. Where the weave is “OVER” weave suggests the traveler is passing through the “OTHERWORLD.” The “UNDER” weave tells us they are travelling through the physical world.
The endless knot has no beginning or end which symbolizes the ancient belief that life is eternal. Like the endless knot, there is no beginning or end in our eternal life. The cycle of “BIRTH,” “DEATH,” and “REBIRTH” continues to repeat itself throughout our journey through life. Our life is like that of a tree: It loses its leaves in the “Fall”, becomes barren during the “Winter,” but life returns in the “Spring” when the leaves reappear.
