Winged Disk above and Hawk headed Ra-Horakhty aniconic and amalgamated forms of Vishnu and Garuda. Hieroglyphic image of Hawk carrying a Disk on head represents Garuda carrying Vishnu in his aniconic Godly Vision Disk form, the Su Darshan Chakra. On the bottom God is represented again in his Ankh form, a variation of the Disk, Swastika, Akhnaten’s Radiant ‘solar’ Arms and the Cross.

This interview was conducted during the research and writing of ‘The Serpent, The Eagle, The Lion and The Disk’. I detail the nearly forgotten ancient world’s ‘God as Time’ – Kalo’smi’ worship, the ancient global presence of Vishnu worship and the symbols and icons that reflect this presence.
