This Trenza de Abundancia (braid of abundance) hangs on my breakfast nook wall. Recently I was asked what it means. I'm not really sure. I only know what I was told when Eloisa gave it to me in Bogota--that it was a Colombian symbol of abundance/fertility. I assume it has much the same symbolism as does the Cornucopia. I began a search for abundance symbols online and it seems most cultures have one--or more. The Chinese character/word for fish is the homonym for abundance. The Maori tribes of New Zealand historically wore fish hooks carved from bone to represent abundance/prosperity. Some Native American tribes consider the squash blossom a symbol of fertility or abundance. Even our own Easter Bunny got his start as a symbol of fertility. It is ironic that so many of the historic symbols represent both fertility and abundance. Perhaps someone reading this will know of more symbols or have more information about the prevalence of such symbols in so many cultural histories.
