Celtic Knot - Roun Tuit

This carving represents a determination to succeed at whatever we put our mind towards. As a result it counteracts procrastination and encourages us to 'do it now'. Why put off until later when there is no better time, or opportunity, that is happening right now. Of course we need wisdom to know that now is the right time to act and the two 'wings' at the top of this carving are symbolic of finding this wisdom and balance. 

 
 

Celtic Knot - Roun Tuit



This is a Celtic style knot called ‘Roun Tuit’. It attracts the attitude of determination and success. 

This carving represents a determination to succeed at whatever we put our mind towards. Thus, it counteracts procrastination and encourages us to 'do it now'. Why put off until later when there is no better time, or opportunity, that is happening right now.

Of course, we need wisdom to know that now is the right time to act and the two 'wings' at the top of this carving are symbolic of finding this wisdom and balance. 

The Koru represent the unfolding and growth of our potential to be happy. A journey towards this goal. The Koru are on the inside of the knot. This symbolises the journey inwards towards peace and enlightenment. 

This is the way to achieve true happiness. The koru symbol is common in New Zealand and is inspired by the unfurling of the new fern fronds. Meanings associated with this are new growth, new beginnings and awakening.  

Hei konā rā (goodbye)
