Matching: the small, double shell spiral, top left
At the top left, a golden and a black snail shape, intertwined, can be seen. This can be interpreted as a symbol for the unity of body and soul that constitutes life. Here the soul (spiritual, immaterial, eternal) is represented by the gold-white colour, the body as dense matter by the blue-black colour.
The large spiral shell in the middle
The outer shell and the man
The outer shell of the large ammonite form in the centre points with the closed side towards the man. This may be seen as an indication that masculinity has its focus on the physical-material side of existence. With his strength, the man creates the outer shell in which the indwelling life is sheltered.
The Inner Shell Animal and the Woman
The woman takes the inner shell-animal, which comes out of the opening of the shell.
This may be seen as a symbol for the vulnerable life. On the one hand, the woman carries her inner life in the solid shell of her body ("male"). On the other hand, in her function as a mother, she is also dependent on a protected, safe space that she can fill with life.
