Symbols - What does heaven look like

Wig

Most wigs which have symbolic meaning, incorporate both  Hair and Curls.  The more hair the better, as the Wig is a symbol of being in touch with the spiritual world and usually means a person who obtains the input of wisdom.    

The long flaps often seen in judges and other supposedly wise people's wigs are a symbol of Big ears!

Part of the symbolism derives from a similar association with that found for ear piercing.  It is an outward demonstration that a person can ‘hear’ the spirits in the spiritual world.  In effect a person with big ears, especially if they stick out a long way is a sort of 'god' a permanently enlightened being.  They can also be thought of as a form of wings, but this is simply a reinforcement of the same idea.
