SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.


It is a symbol of connection and attachment a powerful and lasting unity between entities (i.e marriage.)  

Medieval thinkers sometimes held that a golden chain bound the soul to the body. Broken links on a headstone can mean the severance and subsequent release of the spirit from the body.  

Chains also represent the physical constraints of slavery. It is not surprising, therefore, that they have naturally come to symbolize this concept.
