Celtic art is the traditional geometric and abstract art of the Irish, Scots, Welch and other nationals with Celtic heritage. Most familiar are the elaborate knotwork and interlace designs, but classic Celtic art also includes spirals, step designs and tessellations, key patterns, abstract animal and human motifs. There has been a constant renewal and revival of the themes of Celtic art going back more than 2,000 years. The International day of Celtic Art aims to celebrate the work of living artists and craftsmen as well as that of our artistic ancestors.
