Swirl:This motif originated in what is now Italy, Hungary and Germany 2300 years ago, yet the design is strikingly contemporary. It shows the spiral, which has always symbolized growth, gathering into a circle. To use, it suggests the curl of a plant's stem or root, or the path of a river. No one can be certain as to what it means, but to us, it seems to symbolize the fertility and fecundity. The wave-like pattern, with its ease and curl, also represents a power that is unstoppable and relentless.
