Description A decorative knot with 15 crossings and five-fold rotational symmetry (partly a variation on a design in George Bain's Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction, but changed from 6-fold symmetry to 5-fold symmetry and given rather different artistic rendering). For a version with three-fold symmetry, see File:12crossing-decorative-knot-triskele.svg.
