“The universe is a book written in mathematical characters” Galileo Galilei
The Snail evokes the slow spiritual journey, in fact the process of initiation requires time and patience. The initiate, in his journey must move with prudence, with patience, saving his strength: all qualities that we find in the Snail. The shell of the Snail represents the container, the receptacle, by analogy the matrix, which expresses fertility, gestation. The spiral shape of its shell expresses ascension evolution, indicating the universal motion of upward aspiration.
In terms of spirituality, the symbol of the spiral represents the path that leads to knowledge of the world and existence, the path that the soul takes in its infinite evolution.
