Symbols - What does heaven look like
Complex symbolism. The term has the same meaning as Pigtails, but I will repeat the definition.
The first related symbol is that of Hair. There is also a link to threads and cords for similar reasons. But if there are two plaits it takes on the additional symbolism of Horns and the twin tunnels [!]
One plait is just a single tunnel – but which one – that is the interesting question? After all there are supposedly two tunnels that symbolically rise from the head – is it the plait of the Sun or the plait of the Moon?
