The Flower of Life

May 30, 2012 

The Flower of Life is a design that has been stuck in my brain ever since I first laid eyes on it. It is so representative of everything in this world; of how interconnected everything is.

It represents sacred geometry, reflecting ancient ideas that the Creator had based all his plans for life on a certain geometric plan. The Flower of Life is also very often used in religious design, and for Judeo-Christians, the six petals represent the six days of creation.

Most importantly, the shape is also the basic shape of the snowflake, and the snowflake is made of water, something that is the most essential aspect of life.

Anyway, I ramble. My point is that I decided to decorate our bedroom with it.

What do you think?
