Flower of Life
One of the beautiful arrangements of circles
found at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt. The pattern also appears
in Phoenician art from the ninth century BC. The circles
are placed with six-fold symmetry, forming a mesmerizing pattern of circles
and lenses. A related design from the same temple, which recurs in Italian
art from the 13th century, is the so-called Seed of Life.
