Greek key design square earstuds
8mm x 8mm
The Greek key, meandros or meander motif appears throughout ancient Greek art, from the Geometric period onwards. A symbol of eternity and of the eternal flow of things, it is also thought to represent the maze, and the eternal quest for truth. In its most basic form, it is a linear pattern, composed of a long, continuous line, like the winding course of the river Maeander in Asia Minor. Some say that the twisting pattern mimics the serpent, symbol of guardianship and healing.
This collection is inspired by the traditional Greek key or Meandros design, the Minoan civilisation, and the creatures that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.
