a winged Sun figure rising from a tomb

This time a winged Sun figure rising from a tomb. The tomb is a often used symbol for the phase of Blackness. The figure to the right is the goddess Diana, a symbol for the second phase of Whiteness, symbolized by the Moon. The bow and arrow is a symbol for Fixing the volatile. In other words when Whiteness has been reached, one needs to Fix the Matter (like an arrow pins down something) until it become totally Fixed.
