Symbols - What does heaven look like

Sea urchin

Yet another symbol of the Egg.  Inside is the soft centre - spirit, outside is the hard shell - Earth.


The shell appears to be covered - if it is without its spines - with thousands of little islands.  And it is divided up like the Matrix

With its spines it has added symbolism as the spines look like cones, albeit very long cones and symbolically not quite correct as they point outward and not inward, nevertheless, symbolism being what it is, the spines are a useful symbolic reminder.  In this respect they share some symbolism with Teeth.

Called ‘serpent’s eggs in celtic tradition, it is one of the symbols for the life force and the primordial seed
