Symbol of Sun


The solar symbol was spread widely from the Pacific Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Ancient Egyptian god Ra appeared as a ram as did the Indian god Indra. The Ancient Greek god Zeus was often depicted having ram’s horns and rams pulled the sled of Scandinavian god of thunder Thor. The Kazakhs also considered a ram sacred animal. It symbolised the middle world, earthly life, and was a pure being. A tradition, according to which the head of a ram is given to honoured guests can also be traced back to ancient times.
