The sun is earth's source of light and warmth. Many cultures considered the sun as a god or deity and a symbol of power.
Celestial objects such as the sun, moon and stars may hold great religious and spiritual significance and frequently appear in folk and peasant art.
All solar symbols include variations of the circle. Circles represent continuity and the changes in nature such as the four seasons; winter, spring, summer and fall, day and night, life and death. Spiritual attributes of the sun include the symbol of life, good fortune, personal growth. Star attributes include new birth, happiness, prosperity and good fortune.
