Old knot
« on: May 20, 2016, 08:22:08 AM »
Here is a very old knot I stumbled on an image of today and thought I would share. Do you know where it is from?

Cheers,

Ian

I think I have seen this or something like it before - IIRC it was used to seal an ancient Egyptian tomb.

Yes, done before.

A 3000+ year old old knot is still interesting to look at. Here is a link that appears to me to be worth reading about it.
