This design is inspired from the Celtic Book of Lindisfarne, circa 875 AD, The Gryphon and Dragon symbolizes fire and water, the male and female aspects of nature. The numeral symbolism is of two halves which exist together as a whole. Both animals are the only supernatural beasts found in Celtic art, which gives a dual magical quality.
The knotwork which connects and surrounds the two animals represents the journey of life. Its twists and turns represent the dance of the soul, steps left, right and so in a cycle that never ends. This style of knotwork and animal designs developed out of the more abstract styles of the La Tene 'swirls'. Combined with the Viking influence of the 5th and 6th centuries the style of the Celtic 'golden age' was born. It developed into a more representative art.
