Gaelic art has used a assortment of manners and has shown influences from other civilizations in their knotwork. spirals. cardinal forms. lettering. zoomorphics. works signifiers and human figures. As the archeologist Catherine Johns put it: “Common to Celtic art over a broad chronological and geographical span is an keen sense of balance in the layout and development of forms. Curvilineal signifiers are set out so that positive and negative. filled countries and infinites form a harmonious whole. Control and restraint were exercised in the usage of surface texturing and alleviation. Very complex curvilinear forms were designed to cover exactly the most awkward and irregularly shaped surfaces” . [ 3 ]
