What does ‘Tau’ mean?
Tau (rhymes with “How”) is the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet and is considered an ancient symbol for life. This symbol has also been used to represent the Golden Ratio (Approx. 1.618), which is considered the optimal balance between elements in western art and architecture.
