Spirals are Inspiring

There is something about the spiral shape that I find myself drawn to.  When I think of a spiral pattern it  reminds me of things in nature such as seashells or snails.  I looked it up and found out that in ancient greece, the living spiral has no beginning or end and is an ongoing process to eternity.  It is considered the essence that connects all things.

Here are some photos I found that will hopefully inspire you....

Thanks everyone. B-Lee -- I know what you mean about the lizard tails. I love the effect but have been experimenting with all sorts of ways to use them and I've come up with more than one way to make them and so you can have more or less matching pairs. I think anything with the mirror imaging is fun to create... Keep playing with them and I know you will find even more uses for them!
