The wreath in Ancient Greece called "crown", "garland", "stefaniskos" or "stefanion." From ancient literature we learn that the crown has apotropaic properties and therefore used particularly in religious rites, sacrifices, feasts, weddings.
It was a honorary reward at sports events and public life and a jewelry which was worn by men during the symposiums.
Later wreaths took their place at the door of homes to prevent the house from the evil eye.
The wreath is a circle, the deep structure of completeness, unity and equilibrium in the universe and the human soul.
