Shrivatsa 01 by Ljotunnr Shrivatsa 01 by Ljotunnr
"The endless knot or shrivatsa is one of the “eight auspicious signs,” symbolizing the eight-fold paths of Buddhism. The knot, also known as the “mystic dragon,” is a symbol of eternity and unity. From ancient times, such knots were commonly found in decorations on fabric and on the exterior of buildings, under the common belief that the endless looping of the designs confused evil spirits and prevented them from entering homes. The knot is called the dragon knot because it is believed to have evolved over time from images of protective nagas or dragons." (symboldictionary.net)
