Artist's Statement

It's been a long while since I was a pagan (I just don't do gods any more), so don't jump to too many conclusions here; I simply wanted to do something interesting with a bold shape encrusted with knotwork, and I thought that this would be a really striking image. One of these days I mean to do something similar with a Celtic cross, just to muddy the theological waters even more, or to give equal time, or something - because it's also a striking, bold symbol in its Celtic version.

I've done two treatments of the pentacle, one gold, and the other silver; each one is essentially the same except for its palette.

There are eighteen "gripping beast" dragons - ten in the circle, eight in the corners - with several panels of interlaced bands - and of course the pentacle itself is here turned into a knotwork design.

(I have modified the color balance of this file so that it will print more true to its original; for that reason, as you see it here on your monitor you’re seeing it a bit paler and greener than it ought to be.)
