The Greek key, or meander, design takes its moniker from the Meander river in what was Ancient Greece and is now modern day Turkey. The river's serpentine path was considered a symbol of infinity and the eternal flow of life, the tidy geometric pattern named for the river is an important motif in Ancient Greek art and architecture. This 1920s barrette features a Greek key pattern rendered in bright pink paste.
