The spiral is certainly one of the essential motifs of the symbolism of ornamental art all over the world…From a semantic point of view, the spiral is an emblem of atmospheric phenomena and of the hurricane in particular ; but the fact is that the hurricane in its turn is a symbol of secession from the creative (as well as destructive) functions of the universe, that is, of the suspension of the provisional but pacific order of the universe.  He also points to the connexion between breathing and the creative breath of life. He goes on to suggest that the volute in ancient cultures was spiral form symbolizing the breath and the spirit. It is for this reason that the Egyptian god Thoth is represented with a large spiral on his head.  Finally, by virtue of its significance in connexion with creation, with movement and progressive development, the spiral is an attribute of power…In addition to the above, it is also possible that the spiral may symbolize the relationship between the circle and the centre.
