Widespread symbol of salvation, transformation and love. Emblem of Christ as savior. In ancient Greek mythology, it is the bearer of the gods, savior of heroes and carrier of souls to the islands of the Blessed. Attribute of Poseidon, Aphrodite (union of the masculine, solar world and the feminine, watery world), Eros, Demeter and Dionysus. The dolphin’s Greek name, "delphis," is related to "delphys," womb, after which the sacred site of Delphi is named.. In many Native American cultures, the dolphin is both a divine messenger and a form of the Great Spirit. The seafaring Nabataean Arabs believed that dolphins accompanied the souls of the dead to the underworld. Entwined with an anchor, it can symbolize prudence. The ancient Greeks also linked the dolphin with Apollo, his gifts of wisdom and prophecy, and with the water-born goddess of love.
