Leaf carving art is one of the newest art forms in recent years. Its inspiration comes from the beauty of nature, something we can all appreciate. These ones were created from the Chinar tree, which is native to India, Pakistan and China.
Handfasting is an ancient Ireland Celtic tradition, in which a man and woman came together at the start of their marriage relationship. Each partner holds the hands of the other, right hand to right hand, left hand to left, their wrists crossed. The ribbon is wound around the wrists over the top of one and under and around the other, creating the infinity symbol. The practice gave way to the expression “tying the knot”.
