DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Ancient Mesoamerican populations, such as Aztecs, used the eight-pointed star to represent the sun, identified by the god Tonatiuh. Like in many mythologies, in Aztec beliefs too the sun was thought to burn in fire at sunset in order to grow young again on the following day.

This design was requested by Simone.

The pattern in the middle represents meeting, union.
