A twist with its crisscross form embodies the many paths of life and love thus personifying it as the original symbol for eternity.
The joining together of two people for eternity is defined by the single twist. Although they may move experience separate journeys… they stay connected, sharing and blending their lives to become one.
The symbolism represents the strength of a bond in friendship or relationship, the loyalty and love that will last forever.
The joining of two peoples or cultures instead of individuals has similar meaning for both the double and triple twists.
Intertwining other elements with the Twists such as the Koru and Matau within Māori bone carvings tell a unique powerful story.
