A magical symbol of cultural history. As a result of its ambivalent reputation, different meanings are attached to the spider in mythological history. Thus, in some cultures the image of a spider climbing down a thread is regarded as good fortune coming from heaven and a harbinger of fertility and wealth. Moreover, the shape of the spiders body, which being divided into two sections forms a figure eight, is often interpreted as the symbol of infinity. The spiders web is seen in some traditions as reflecting the intricate interconnectivity of life as a dreamcatcher which protects people from bad dreams.
On the other hand the spider does not enjoy a positive reputation in all mythologies: in some traditions it represents the lethal counterpart of the busybee and is the embodiment of mans sinful urges. The design is inspired by the ancient myth of the spider.
