Sun worship 5

(5) A chest of drawers made for an SS-Obergruppenführer in 1940, with florid Nazi symbolism. The main panels on the front represent the idealised peasant family, and the main theme of the symbolism in the animals and plants represented is fertility. Note the frieze with runic figures across the top of the chest, with the Nazi swastika in the centre. At the bottom left of the chest is a prominent sun symbol.
