For MATH 118 (The Art of Geometry) we were asked to use one or more of the geometric principles we studied to create a unique piece of art.  I chose to explore the methods of creating Celtic knots, which require some of the compass and straight edge techniques we learned for generating geometric shapes.

Though none of the initial marks appear in the final product, a geometric layout consisting of equilateral triangles provides the structure around which this Celtic knot pattern is drawn.
