Celtic Knot Sculpture

Celtic Knot Sculpture by Victor Daly

Celtic Knot Sculpture

The Celtic knot design, familiar to many from the illustrations used in the Book of Kells, remains a design classic.

Here the intricate, interlaced design is dramatically juxtaposed with the strength of stone .

Victor learnt his craft as a stone-carver when he was apprenticed into a family who had passed their skills down from generation to generation. He was the first person from outside the family to be trusted with those skills, and so this sculpture reflects the unbroken traditions of stone-carving and design in Ireland.
