Celtic Spiral Graphics

These images represent the Celtic fascination with spiral designs. Some of these show a remarkable similarity to Ying–Yang symbology of China, which I emphasize in the Wilson designs by color that I have supplied. I also recolored the spiral from Owen Jones, page 65, as spiral–01.gif,, a variation of oj–65–09.gif. This was an experiment to clean up scanned colors to produce a more solid, more graphic design.

The thumbnail represents a 60 pixel representative portion of the design. The size of the full scale image is also given in pixels, width by height.
