The Meaning of the Spiral
For the ancient Celts a population that lived in Western Europe between 500 BC and 400 AD spirals provided an entire language by which to interpret and engage in the world. The influence of this shape continues today not just in Ireland. Though many versions of the spiral exist they all speak to the constantly moving quality of the universe and all of its components be they human animal spiritual or natural. The single spiral suggests that energy initiates from a central core and revolves outward. It also symbolizes the process of growth and evolution.
