Symbols and Sacred Objects

This info. is taken from "The Women's Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects" by Barbara Walker, 1988

"Any one symbol may have hundreds of interpretations, according to the different beliefs of people who have interpreted it.

Circle
A Hindu deity called The One, was described like this: "an unbroken circle, with no circumference, for it is nowhere and everywhere." "The circle has always been one of the primary feminine signs. The circle is associated with the idea of a protected or consecrated space, center of the motherland, and a ceremonial space where all participants are equal."
