The Shield Knot is an ancient and universal symbol of protection. The ancient Norse and Celts used it generously in armor, architecture, and ornament, and the Jewish Kabbalists used similar talismans to evoke the protection of the four archangels. Through the ages, these talismans were believed to confound the wicked and deflect danger. The knot is formed by an eternal unbroken path, locking into the shape of a cross, a symbol of elemental order, stability, authority, and virtue.
