This symbol means “the spider web” and is a reminder that all things are connected. It also highlights the complexity of life and how wisdom is gained throughout life. This is perhaps the best representation of life, with its intricate web of decisions, lessons, and mistakes and reminds us that a mistake and lesson are important in learning and growing. In the west as well this is a common symbol, often found on clothing and wallpaper and is representative of beauty and grace, as well as elegance and an enjoyment of nature. If you look back at history, this particular shape was prominent in the counter-culture movement of the 1960s.
