Celtic Knot Serpent - Hand Carved or Engraved
Knot work interlacing's are peculiar to the Pictish school of Celtic Art. The intricate, mathematical and abstract designs exist because the imitation of the works of God (whichever one) was forbidden. Until the Christian era even vegetation was forbidden as motif to the Pict.
As a symbol of continuity, interlacing knot work is found on stones, metal work, and manuscripts. Different geographical areas have distinctly differing styles.
This hand carved design is a knot incorporating four dragons and is based upon the Shandwick Stone, a standing stone in Scotland just north of the Cromarty Firth.
Our Celtic Knot Serpent can be either hand carved or hand engraved as detailed in the photos above.
A Celtic Knot Serpent can be Engraved on to any colour vessel (Black, Brown, Tan, Red, Green or Blue). During ordering please enter your preferred colour into the "Additional Information. Notes" box.
Historically, leather tankards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather drinking vessels are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.
