Gaut's Interlace

Gaut's Interlace is an insular form of the Borre Style appearing as a ring-chain motif.

The style takes its name from Gaut's Cross (Kirk Michael 101) in the Isle of Man which carries a runic inscription which reads:

"Gaut made this and all in Man"

Gaut is the first Viking artist whom we can recognize by his own name.

Gaut's Interlace also appears on the Gosforth Cross.
