The spiral is an important symbol in many different cultures. As a backpacker, many of the countries I went to had some kind of interesting connection to it. I found this on the internet:
One of the oldest geometric shapes found throughout the ancient world are spirals. Petroglyphs of spirals date back to around the Neolithic period.
Yet, ancient cultures throughout the world carved the same symbol with little or no communication with each other.
The spiral is fundamental to nature, appearing on animals such as the snail, seashells, and occurs in natural phenomena such as whirlpools, hurricanes, tornadoes and spinning galaxies.
The spiral has become a powerful symbol for creation and growth, used by many ancient cultures and religious traditions.
The Spiral is a sacred symbol that represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to Source. The spiral symbol can represent the consciousness of nature beginning from its center expanding outwardly. (https://www.tainoage.com/)
