“Modern Spatial Eternal Knot” is our modern eternal knot interpretation.
MODERN ETERNAL KNOT—DETAILS
“Modern Spatial Eternal Knot” is a modern take on the traditional eternal knot in Buddhist / Tibetan Buddhist philosophy. The “Modern Spatial Eternal Knot” features clean minimalist lines. It’s about simplicity—a reminder that doing with less is a good thing.
The eternal knot (endless knot) is one of the eight auspicious symbols. It has a few interpretations: the unending cycle of death and rebirth (Samsara), the dualistic nature of life, the wisdom of the Buddha, a union of wisdom and method (and wisdom and compassion), etc. The eternal knot is an old symbol, one that has existed in a number of cultures (e.g., Celtic knot, Chinese knot, etc.). But it’s as relevant today as it was way back then.
Here, the “Modern Spatial Eternal Knot” is printed on two types of paper. Select either premium photo paper or matte cotton rag paper. Epson’s Exhibition Fiber paper has a gorgeous texture (not entirely smooth, but not really textured) and produces a vivid print with a wide color gamut. It’s not glossy, but does have a satin sheen. Epson’s Hot Press smooth cotton rag is a thick paper (330 gsm) with a warmer tone. If you love the look and feel of smooth watercolor paper, this is for you! It’s not as white as the Exhibition Fiber (which is NOT super bright white) and the colors are more muted because the paper is completely matte. Both papers are gorgeous and we honestly cannot decide which one we prefer!
