SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
The primal symbol of the spiral is considered one of the most powerful symbols of antiquity and symbolizes time and the evolution of life. Depictions of it have existed since prehistoric times. In the photo, a mural with a representation of a double white spiral found at the settlement of Akrotiri of Thera in the “Xestes 3” building which is believed to have been the settlement’s public sanctuary.
