The Flower of Life is a symbol that was adopted by different religions around the world. According to these beliefs, it contains a value that is associated to the fundamental forms of space and time, being a visual expression of the connections between all forms of life. Thus, it is considered one of the basic forms of the sacred geometry from which other symbols such as the Tree of Life from the Kabbalah or the Platonic Solids have possibly derived.
This form has been found in temples, art and manuscripts from all over: the Temple of Osiris in Abydos (Egypt); the Forbidden City and other temples in China; the Harimandir Sahib and the temples in the Ajantā caves (India), as well as in Japan, Europe, Northern Africa, Mexico or Peru.
Leornardo da Vinci also dedicated a study to this geometrical form from which the ORIGAMI lamp emerges after its folding.
