THE HISTORY OF THE FLOWER OF LIFE
The oldest known depictions of the Flower of Life were found in the Temple of Osiris in Egypt and date back to at least 6.000 years ago, and recent research has concluded that they could not have been made earlier than 535 BC. These depictions of the symbol are fascinating because they were not carved into the rock, but rather burned or drawn onto the granite with red ochre with great precision. Some believe that the symbol could have been used to represent the Eye of Ra. Leonardo da Vinci was known to have studied the Flower of Life pattern and derived the five platonic solids, as well as the Golden Ratio of Phi, from the symbol. Nowadays, the Flower of Life symbol is commonly found on jewelry pieces, tattoos, decor items, and other decorative products. New Age groups use and study the symbol to try to attain enlightenment and find deeper meaning in life. The Flower of Life is also found in several religions and some believe that the Tree of Life, which is associated with the teachings of Kabbalah, may have been derived from the symbol.
The Seed of Life is formed with seven overlapping circles that create a more singular flower design. To some, this symbolizes the 7 days of creation during which God created life.
The Egg of Life is also formed from seven circles, which only just overlap each other. The shape made is said to be similar to that of a multi-cellular embryo in its early stages.
The Fruit of Life consists of thirteen circles selected from the classic Flower of Life symbol. This shape is said to be a basic design of the universe and holds the geometric foundation for Metatron's Cube.
Metatron's Cube illustrates the five platonic solids, which are the believed to be structures that act as a foundation for all organic life. These five structures are the star tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron, which are found in life forms, minerals, music, sound, and language. Metatron's Cube is also considered a holy symbol which can be used as protection from evil.
