Ornaments and symbols

Trypillian ornaments amaze by their mystic power. From the depth of 7000 years ago their ancient patterns talk to us with forgotten language of signs and symbols. A perfect rhythmic of the ornament, the richness of symbols, bring us a mighty primordial magic of communication between these ancient people and their gods.

The combination of symbols allowed to convey a total phrase or a thought - "it's raining, grain falls on soil, grows and stretches to the sky". Trypillians were one step from their own written language, they had around 300 signs and their blocks. Among them are such as famous Summer Istar's star, symbols of a plant, a water, a house, etc.

We still are trying to understand what was hidden in the Trypillian signs and symbols? Trypillians had an idea of reincarnation or rebirth, which is central concept of their civilization and lies in a base of a system of magic and sacral rituals with which Trypillians tried to achieve immortality of a human soul.
