  • Interlace is a decorative element found in medieval art. It involves looping, braiding, and knotting bands or portions of other motifs in complex geometric patterns, often to fill a space. Interlacing is common in Northern European Migration period art, early medieval Insular art of Ireland and the British Isles, and Norse art of the Early Middle Ages, as well as Islamic art. Intricate braided and interlaced patterns, known as plaits in British usage, first appeared in late Roman art in various parts of Europe, on mosaic floors, and in numerous other media.
