The Eternal Lovers
The Sunwheel, more commonly known in the west as the ‘Swastica’ can be seen in various designs and forms. There are suggestions that the cross symbolises the four seasons or elements set around a motionless centre, with the trailing line arms providing rotational symmetry in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. Both depictions have a particular meaning. In Hinduism the clockwise sunwheeel symbolises the sun and prosperity whilst the anti-clockwise sunwheel symbolises the night or the tantric aspects of Kali. Alternatively, in Buddhism the sun wheel symbolises the footprint of Buddha.
