7. THE STARS AND THE EIGHT SEEDS


FIG. 24

Fig. 25
The vertical border is composed of 27 stars and the horizontal is composed of 18 stars, giving the proportion 3/2. No green color is found in the border. The stars are obviously suggesting the sky. The stars are represented 8-pointed with four corners on each side. The 8-pointed star  is a symbol found in all cultures from antiquity until present, but this representation with four corners on each side is unique. The group of eight seeds FIG. 25 is probably connected with the border.
