The spiral is one of the oldest symbols and it was used since the Stone Age in Greece. It is one of the strongest - historic symbols of the ancient greek civilization and it declared the Greek origin of all things that bear it, especially before the classic period of the gold century and beyond.

The spiral is unwound through myths, religious beliefs and legends. It is etched on rocks and in prehistoric megalithic monuments. The ancient Greeks were aware of the great mystical meaning of the spiral, so they drew it everywhere. From the temples and the shields of warriors, the depiction of the hairstyle on the gorgeous head of the Kouros statues, and on the ornament for the ancient women's hair and jewelry. It has been found painted on frescos in ancient Thera and also on many vessels from the Minoan age, that were discovered in Crete and Santorini.
