Ever since I submitted the tutorial on the Celtic clover knot, I have been getting e-mails requesting that I do a lesson that teaches you "how to draw Triquetra"" which is a symbol also known as the “trinity knot”. In the beginning the symbol was nothing more then three triangular knots, also known as “vesicae piscis”, that where weaved together to form a three cornered pattern. When there is a circle in the middle this is then called “the Trinity” representing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Of course this is commonly used by Christians. The symbolism of the ring in the middle, combines all three elements into a unified piece. Over time the symbol has become part of pop culture, and associated with other Celtic art. Most of the designs nowadays are made from some sort of metal, or braided together with twine or rope. If you where to type in how to draw Triquetra, instead of results you will see a page filled with questions on how to draw one of the very popular symbols. The pattern almost looks like the Triforce from the Nintendo video game Zelda doesn't it? Anyway, even though the shape, and laced lines may seem a bit intimidating to draw, you will definitely be able to draw the trinity knot when your done using this tutorial. I will leave you now to this lesson, but I will be back shortly. Peace out people, and happy drawing!
