Flower Of Life design origin unknown. It is used in several religions, mathematics, and scientific endeavors. This particular coloration and drawing is by CuriousElement.

The Flower of Life is the modern name given to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. They are arranged to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry, similar to a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.

It is considered by some to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. In this sense, it is a visual expression of the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things.

There are many spiritual beliefs associated with the Flower of Life; for example, depictions of the five Platonic Solids are found within the symbol of Metatron's Cube, which may be derived from the Flower of Life pattern. These platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs.

According to Drunvalo Melchizedek, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the stages which construct the Seed of Life are said to represent the six days of Creation, in which Elohim created life; Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 23:12, 31:16-17, Isaiah 56:6-8. Within these stages, among other things, are the symbols of the Vesica Piscis, an ancient religious symbol, and Borromean rings, which represents the Holy Trinity.

Study the Flower Of Life for yourself! It is quite interesting!

Simplistic, But Amazing

To many people who don't consider this art are absent minded. I already knew a tad bit of The Flower Of Life but after reading the lengthy comment I just feel enlightened. Keep Up With Th Good Work :)

Thanks so much for the kind words and review! I've really been researching a lot about the connections between spirituality and the sciences. It's all very fascinating! I knew upon posting it, that not many people would see the art as well as educational purpose it serves!
