t001-1

 

This stylised representation shows man's ability to stand on his feet t001-2, extending his arms egotistically t001-3. But high above man t001-2, be he ever so great t001-3, stretches the heavenly firmament, filling the empty space above his shoulders and directing his footsteps. Hence: t001-4, meaning heaven -- man's rightful and authoritative head. Since the growing light of the sky ushers in the dawn of day, t001-4 came to mean also "day".
