3 Inch Round Embroidered Patch. Black & White.
This design is based on a Bronze Age sun wheel pendant originally found in Zürich, and dated to the 2nd Millennium B.C. I was drawn to this particular design because it represents an ancient and authentic connection to the continuity of solar symbols that extends through Indo-European cultures all the way back to their theoretical source in the Pontic-Caspian Steppe. The sun wheel, sun cross, or Sonnenkreuz symbolizes not only the sun, but motion and momentum, turning and action — referencing the invention of the spoked wheel and the terrible glory of the battle chariot.
