In ancient times the seven Celtic nations were Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Brittany and Galicia. Ancient Celtic art was full of interlacing patterns, elaborate knotwork, spirals, animal forms and zoomorphics. The Celts lived close to the natural world but also had a strong spiritual sense. The Celts believed in the "oneness" of nature and that nature had the ability to transform itself on all levels of existance. Typical Celtic designs have a flowing, interconnected quality, from "endless knots" to spirals to zoomorphic animal designs in which body parts of a single animal or multiple animals are joined together in graceful knot-like configurations.
