Kairos Consultancy's designs use a synthesis of human and natural symbolism ... inspired by e.g.:
 
Symbols


- Art: a Trispiral pre Celtic symbol on the Newgrange threshold stone:

Newgrange, Co. Meath, Ireland. Newgrange (Sí an Bhrú) is a Stone Age passage tomb built in around 3200 BC. Symbols are carved on the threshold stone and some other stones inside and outside the tomb. Newgrange is part of the larger Brú na Bóinne complex which features Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth. The Brú na Bóinne complex "is Europe's largest and most important concentration of prehistoric megalithic art. The monuments there had social, economic, religious and funerary functions." (UNESCO)
  
Newgrange is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
Giant's Causeway


- Natural forms: a circular stone form within a hexagonal shape:

The Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns caused by the cooling of volcanic activity approximately 50–60 million years ago. Legend states that it was built by the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool) as stepping stones to Scotland.

The Giant's Causeway is UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Joseph Beuys, a German sculptor, visited both Newgrange and the Giant's Causeway in 1974.
"Beuys’ approach to art was informed by a set of methodologies which saw the inner life of the human being and the outer world with which she or he engages as profoundly linked in both physical and psychic terms." (Walters, 2010: 22)

Walters (2010: 23) proposes that Beuys' work offers "a potential set of strategies and approaches that rekindle important spiritual relationships between people, places and myth that can be worked with in developing an eco-anthropology..."
