Hearts represent love in all its many aspects and they are also seen as symbolising having heart, the power of courage and will. To the ancient Egyptians it was the heart, rather than the brain, which was seen as the organ that held the person's mind and soul. Heart knots are a rather recent addition to Celtic symbolism. Hearts as symbols of love date from the later medieval period but became an established part of the Celtic repertoire in the last decade of the 20th century.
The Celts used knotwork to decorate many of their artifacts. To them, the intricate patterns woven into spirals and knots symbolise the continuity of life.
