Since the Middle Ages, the Celtic cross has been a much-loved symbol of Irish culture and heritage. Traditionally it has been used to mark graves but over the years has become a popular design motif for so much more, from tattoos to jewelry. And like most design motifs, it continues to evolve.
This lattice-like cross is of a very compact cruciform shape: The four arms are all the same length and don't extend very far outward from their intersection. The overlapping bands that make up the knot are set on a diagonal and their rounded corners make for a decorative outer edge.
