  The circular shape of the sun which emphasizes the ever recurring cyclical nature of the seasons is the origin of this neolithic symbol. It combines a cross within a circle and is the simplest conceivable representation of the union of opposed polarities. Probably the oldest symbol in the world, it appeared in Asian, American, European and Indian art from the dawn of history.
    One interpretation says that the four-armed  cross represents shadows cast by the rising and setting sun at the two solstices. The circle eventually disappeared  and became the “real” cross.
   This solar, or wheel cross, is recreated from a petroglyph found at Red Tank Draw near Sedona, Arizona.
