Flower of Life

The Flower of Life is a creation pattern of everything in existence. It consists of several circles that overlap and the centre of every circle sits on the circumference of the immediate circles of the same diameter. When two circles have been designed following this formula, the vesica piscis symbol is created and three circles create the holy trinity. In addition, when seven circles have been designed following the same formula, the seed of life is created. The seed of life represents the eight original cells which creates human life. The flower of life originated from Egypt in the second century. The fruit of life, metatron’s cube and the tree of life are all derived from the flower of life design when completed with all circles.

Metatron’s Cube is a geometric arrangement of the five platonic solids: tetrahedron, octahedron, hexahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron.
