The Flower of Life
a name for a geometrical figure composed of seven or more evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure, used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon. The perfect form, proportion and harmony of the flower of life has been known to philosophers, architects and artist around the world.
Pagans consider it to be sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time. The oldest known examples of the Flower of Life are believed to be those present in the Temple Of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt. Most archaeologists maintain that they are at least 6,000 years old, though some have argued that it dates to the 2nd century AD.
The most peculiar feature of the Flower of Life in Abydos is that it appears that it was not carved into the granite but instead may have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision. - RP @annunakihistory
