St Justin Celtic Heart Design
Heart designs continue to be our best sellers. Hearts represent love in all its many aspects and they are also seen as symbolizing 'having' the power of courage and will. To the ancient Egyptians it was the heart, rather than the brain, which was seen as the organ that held the person's mind and soul.
Heart knots are a rather recent addition to Celtic symbolism. Hearts as symbols of 'love' date from the later medieval period but have become as established part of the Celtic repertoire in the last decade of the 20th century.
