ALL KEYED UP

In both art and architecture, a meander or meandros is a decorative border consisting of a continuous line shaped into a repeated motif. This particular design is called a Greek fret or Greek key. Meanders were among the most important symbols in ancient Greece perhaps symbolizing infinity, unity, the bonds of friendship, love and devotion. Some believe it had it had its basis in the Greek myth of the labyrinth that held the minotaur, but in actually has been found in other cultures thousands of years beforehand. It has long been a staple in the world of architecture and design. There is, and always has been, an enduring, classical beauty associated with the iconic design motif. I’ve always been drawn to it in any application and feel certain it’s due in large part to its forever elegant, tailored aesthetic whenever utilized.
