Endless like this knot, the waves keep weaving their pattern forever.
The Knot geometry project is now sailing toward Macapa – Cidade das Mangueiras (the city of Mango ). No known relationship between the mango tree grain and the 7 – 4 knot, but it was fun to look into it to see if there was any.
In mathematical knot theory, the endless 7 – 4 knot is a 7-crossing knot which can be visually depicted in a highly-symmetric form and is one of the oldest known knot on the planet. It was found on clay tablets over 2500 years (BC) ago and its symbol is featured in many Eastern and Western religions.
Was it at the origin of weaving? It maybe since it is made from a single strand weaved and reweaves symmetrically.
Doing a symmetrical tiling was tempting. But in the context of this project project, I let the waves inspire me and take us into a more complex beadlike composition.
