Es conocido que los Letones antiguos utilizaban la escritura de nudo. ¿Es el famoso cinturón "Lielvarde" un adorno decorativo o un mensaje codificado? :)

"Lielvarde es una pequeña ciudad situada a unos 50 km del sureste de Riga, Letonia. Es a partir de este mismo lugar del que el cinturón Lielvarde es originario. Esta cinta tejida en rojo y blanco representa 22 símbolos antiguos diferentes y era usado por hombres y mujeres durante los actos festivos. Ciertos patrones se podían encontrar en los billetes de Lat, moneda anterior". (Más aquí)
