Sunrises and sunsets are fascinating to watch. Moreover it’s a great inspiration for creating art. So what do you prefer, sunrise or sunset?
The sun is one of the prime reasons for life on earth and is thus considered a divine symbol. Sunrise (or sunup) is the moment when the upper rim of the Sun appears on the horizon in the morning. While sunset (or sundown) is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the horizon due to Earth’s rotation.
The sun tattoo is often used in body art to represent life or light in ancient cultures. It is a sacred symbol that can also symbolize warmth, optimism, energy, and success. It can mean the sun god.
