My Eye of the Storm design is based on a basic spiral shape - spirals being one of the most ancient symbols of our planet. Throughout my research, I have found a common conclusion behind the spiral, which is that it represents evolution, growth, and rebirth. Let's think for a moment, about what we know of in life that are spiral shaped that brings about rebirth - tornadoes and hurricanes? I find it not to be a coincidence that these natural forces of the Earth bring about destruction and with that comes growth and evolution. The theme of "rebirth" overtook the City of New Orleans after Katrina.
