This is the door knocker of my new home. I love the way the face looks, and I can't believe that we found this house with a door knocker like this. I can't wait to move into the home. It makes my spirit sing with joy every time I see this sun. Thanks for the Blessings!!!

This Sun image is from France. Since the Sun King came to the throne as a boy, I am guessing that this image was cast during the time he was very young. The face does not have a mature feel at all. It almost has more of a Cherub feel. The face is full, but young looking. The rays of the sun are very apparent.

Villa Selene Helius is the Mosaic that is portrayed here. He is rising AS the sun with his chariot leading the way. He is surrounded by a halo, and the rays of sun bursting around his head as an extra Ora. His cape flow behind him as he speeds to bring fourth the light that we humans so crave. Waves surround the horses as he is coming up out of the water. Is he coming from the edge of the earth? Is he coming from an orbit that is more round?

Throughout history we have had several that have thought of themselves as Sun Kings. Louis XIV was our last to call himself a Sun King (that I know of). His reign lasted more than 70 years. This is a beautiful depiction of a face of a human as part of the sun. Take a look at the rays around his head. Curly (more wavy) flowing out away from his face. He has shown us that he too has a connection to Gods, much the same way other Kings have linked themselves to a God.

This is a coin from Rhodes. One side is Helius, the Sun God. You can see the hair surrounding him is exaggerated by the waves of his hair imitating the rays of the sun. The other side is a flower. I believe that it looks like a Lotus flower, but others may draw another conclusion all together.

Here we have Apollo as the Sun God. Instead of a generic face we have a human look. This is the usual representation of Apollo with a long face, and curly hair. Narrow nose, and full lips. Apollo is sometimes shown driving his chariot, as he is the one that brings the sun to us mortals.

This is one of my earrings. It is made of Lapis and Gold. The face of the sun on this earring is a happy one. It has the classic look and feel that I adore. I believe that these earrings are from Italy, so it would explain the magnetism that I felt for them before I purchased them.
