This ornament is a perfect reflection for St. Patrick's Day. The cross curves and twists into the shape of a traditional Celtic knot. These knots are always, in one way or another, symbols of eternity in that they have no beginning and no end, but are continually in motion. This is an obvious analogy for the Trinity, and it is not a coincidence that St. Patrick's example of the Trinity as a shamrock-shape came out of Ireland. The Celts were a deeply symbolic and religious people, who were very highly visually literate.
