Celtic art is ornamental, avoids straight lines and only occasionally uses symmetry. This style often involves complex symbolism without the imitation of nature central to the classical tradition. Celtic art shows an influence by a variety of styles and from other cultures in their knotwork, spirals, key patterns, lettering, zoomorphics, plant forms and human figures.
Celtic stencils like this one depict a style of art that has evolved over a huge expanse of time, geography and cultures. Celtic Art shows some artistic continuity in Europe from the Bronze Age and also the preceding Neolithic age. However, archaeologists generally use "Celtic" to refer to the culture of the European Iron Age from around 1000BC onwards, until the conquest by the Roman Empire. Art historians typically begin to talk about "Celtic art" only from the La Tène period (broadly 5th to 1st centuries BC) onwards.
