H2O is the chemical formula for water. It describes water broken down into its elements.

For me, the waterfall symbolises unleashed creativity in a constant fluid shape that is ever-changing and renewing. It symbolises openness, flexibility, power, form and spirituality which is a primordial symbol association with water in its countless expressions.

In literature, water is associated with a symbol of change and is present at turning points. In most cultures, it is a sign of life. Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, was motivated to contemplate on the waterfall as the continuous evolution of beings. The drops of water which come together to form a waterfall are renewed each second.

The waterfall symbolises unharnessed elemental motion. The force field that one needs to master and control one’s spirituality or spiritual being. The waterfall is symbolic of lastingness of form despite the change of content. Waterfall symbolises immense release of emotion, rejuvenation and renewal of spirit. The four elements of life on our planet of which water is the crucial element and the waterfall, in particular, is continuous creation and renewal.
