The sun was particularly revered by the nature-loving people, because this stands for the origin of the life and for fertility.Especially after a long winter in the northern countries if the sun rises above the horizon at the first time again there was organised wonderful festivals to her honour.
The sun was revered as the most important divinity and her symbol stands for luck, vitality and renewal.
The origin of the symbols are on the shaman drum which were used by nordic shamans in their ceremonies. Shamans were healers and predicted future.
On the drum one findes symbols, for the upper part for heaven, in the middle for earth and earthly life and in the lower part for Manala, the underworld.
