Tapio Manninen, B. M. (2016). Creative Power of the Flower of Life. Retrieved from

This is my second book that intends to discover the history of the Flower of Life symbol. Now my main focus is on the interpretation of the symbol and on meanings attached to it throughout the history, starting from the Near East Bronze Age until our days. The reader is expected to be familiar with basics of the Flower of Life geometry. Elementary knowledge of the ancient Near East history and history of mathematics is helpful. Knowledge of visual arts, geometry, and comparative religion studies are also useful. I hope that my independent research provides valuable resources for people to further investigate the topic.

Complementary material to the Artifacts of the Flower of Life research document.
