143. Spiral (Aesthetics 2)

spiral

Those of you who have been reading my work for a long time will know that if I have a spiritual connection with any animal, it is with the humble snail. They contain soft and hard, vulnerability teamed with resilience, patience and the ability to turn my patio into a shimmering ice rink of silver trails. The spirals they carry everywhere with them are symbols of infinity, and these shapes seem utterly perfect to me. DNA forms itself into spirals, and many astrophysicists now think the universe is shaped like one too.   Imagine carrying a tiny universe on your back!
