Someone requested a really large Mystic Knot based on a pendant design of mine, also available in my shop. This one is 6 inches on the longest length.

I had to hollow it out to make it more affordable and as such the walls vary in thickness from just under to just over 1mm. The holes are for the material to be removed after printing and only show on one side. It is meant to be hung on a wall.

Wikipedia entry on Mystic Knots: Eternal Love and Friendship The eternal continuum of mind. The Endless knot iconography symbolised Samsara i.e., the endless cycle of suffering or birth, death and rebirth within Tibetan Buddhism. The inter-twining of wisdom and compassion. Interplay and interaction of the opposing forces in the dualistic world of manifestation, leading to their union, and ultimately to harmony in the universe. The mutual dependence of religious doctrine and secular affairs. The union of wisdom and method. The inseparability of emptiness (shunyata) and dependent origination, the underlying reality of existence. Symbolic of knot symbolism in linking ancestors and omnipresence (refer etymology of Tantra, Yoga and religion) (see Namkha.) Since the knot has no beginning or end it also symbolizes the wisdom of the Buddha.
