Here's a small series of "endless knots", or "good luck knots", cut in linoleum:
As for the origin(s)/inspiration; one is Tibetan, one is Arab-inspired, the rest just inspired.
Two miniature linoleum prints, technically difficult to cut. Each board measures only 5x5cm, so most lines are 1 mm thick, or less.
While I'm responsible for the cutting and printing I can't take credit for the designs as they are apparently more than 1000 years old.
Read on for more prints (patterns with these two), and the story.
