The equilateral cross is a virtually universal symbol. The solar wheel represents the sacred circle of life, its basic four directions, and the elements - the balance of time, the seasons, and the Universe. It was known in Norse culture as a Viking Cross or Odin's Cross. The wheel was an important symbol in historical Celtic polytheism, apparently associated with a specific god, known as the wheel-god, identified as the sky- sun- or thunder-god, whose name is attested as Taranis by Lucan. It is thought to correspond to a sun-cult practiced in Bronze Age Europe, the wheel representing the sun moving thru the heavens on its daily journey. In many cultures, it symbolizes the union of heaven and earth or the inner and outer worlds of the human psyche. It was adopted by Christians as combining the cross of the crucifixion with the union of heaven and earth. Solar Wheel - Solar Cross - Viking Cross - Odin's Cross 21mm W x 38mm H Bronze
