Rose Window is the term for enormous circles of inset glass from Europe’s Medieval cathedrals. The overall circle with its inner spiral comes from a small design in the 9th century Irish Book of Kells. I have turned this into a kind of formline design with its three inner circles.

The circle on the left is a traditionally styled ovoid representing The Past. The free-form circle on the right is symbolic of the Present. The circle at the top is a human figure holding and/or shouldering primary design elements as he rushes off right into the Future.

Note: The three circular designs within Rose Window are also available on their own.
