Book of Kells: Framed Tree of Life

The Books of Kells Series:
Inspired by the artistry of the ancient text and my belief that books carry within them all the questions and answers we've ever dreamt up. Much like each of us as individuals, each page leads to the next, but never is a single page the sum of us or our life story. With space for an important keepsake, picture, or, perhaps, a lock of hair from our own love story.

On the Cover, Tree of Life:
This is my interpretation of the Tree of Life: The universe depicted as an extention of one codependent form. The root sustains through it's connection to the ground while the branches bring heavenly sustainence. Worked with trinity knots at the end of the branches, this knot represents the trinity archetype. From the body, mind, and spirit, to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Framed by an original, hand drafted knot work design.
