Family

Family draws heavily on a combination of complex symbols:

The Double Helix for humanity

The Egyptian Ankh means life. (The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.)

The folded Infinity Symbol for continuity and complexity of the relationship.

The (quasi) Mobius Strip to show how family relationships intertwine.

The vertical orientation to lift you up.

The altered perspective (thinner at the top) to create a larger space

Each loop represents a family member with the father on the bottom providing support and the mother on top holding the whole together.

Inspiration was from Japanese sculptors who produce interconnected rings and links to represent family.
