Purification, prosperity, matchmaking
Water cleanses as a symbol of purification. Commonly used in tea rooms, the swirl is often regarded as a water pattern that promotes faith in prayers for rain and bountiful harvests. However, its original meaning is pregnant with the ideas of life and death, evoking the ideas of reincarnation and the transmigration of souls. The pattern is imbued with a magical power symbolizing light and energy.
