Solar symbols as a decoration

Solar symbols as a decoration of Russian Nalichniki

To pursue a good road of self-education, today I demonstrate a collage of several window frames decorated by rather typical and widespread solar symbols. Some are rather aged, some are younger, some can be found everywhere (i.e. the 1st and the 2nd in the left column), and some can only be seen in the Kostroma Oblast (like the one decorated with snakes).

Most of the framed are decorated with the midday Sun only. The bottom one in the left column shows the rising and the setting Sun. It is very rare, yet sometimes all the three Suns are at the fronton.

Which means the Sun is probably the most popular symbol shown at the window frames.
