The wheel was seen as the solar image of cosmic momentum; ceaseless change and cyclic repetition. Also of power and dominion. It has been linked with the progress of mankind and a Hindu and Buddhist emblem of reincarnation. In western tradition, it serves as an image of fortune and fate. The “wheel” is known as the “sun” which is an emblem of glory, brilliance and authority. It represents happiness, life and spirituality. In this horse-brass, the centre (“axle”) represents earth, the “hub” around the axle represents the oceans of the world, the outer ring represents heaven and the “spokes” represent the rays of sunlight that connect the earth with heaven. Where the rays connect with heaven, the number “7” is formed and since the beginning of civilization, the number seven has been looked upon as the lucky number.
