Title: Circle, Square, Triangle

About the Photo:

Three simple shapes – circle, square, and triangle – are essential symbols in ancient cultures. Zoroaster spoke of them as three symbols of man. The founder of Aikido spoke of the triangle as body, the circle as mind and the square as solidity. In profound philosophy a circle symbolises heaven and represents number one, a square symbolises earth and represents the number two, and a triangle symbolises human beings and represents the number three.

I have created these three shapes with dried rose petals.
