* Knot Design

 The knot motif, known as the "endless knot" or "eternal knot," is a traditional design that originated from Buddhist symbolism, which was highly influential in China during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). This design represents the interconnectedness of all things, the cyclical nature of life, and the idea of eternity and longevity. It is meant to symbolize good luck, prosperity, and a harmonious flow of auspicious energies.
