This week`s DIVA Challenge is dedicated to St Patrics Day and we have to bring a touch of Irish into our tiles.
Some years ago, when I did not know anything about Zentangle I was several times in Ireland for holidays. As I love patterns as long I can remember, I bought a book "The treasury of celtic knots".
I was absolutely thrilled about the "Book of Kells" , which has been hand written and drawn by celtic monks about 1200 years ago. We could see in the Library of the Trinity College in Dublin. The celtic signs, knots and drawings are simply amazing.
This is why I decided to draw a celtic knot for this challenge - because I have lots of wonderful memories to my stays in this beautiful country- surely we will come back one day...
The knot I can be seen in Original in Glendalough, one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland.
