“The encircling figure is the Rainbow goddess. The swastika-like central figure represents the whirling logs with Yei riding upon them. At the East is Hastsheyalti (white); at the West Hastshehogan (black). Rain spirits, with cloud-sacks and baskets, are North and South. Symbols of vegetation are between the arms of the cross.”
