This symbol represents the following according to Hugh Nibley's "TEMPLE AND COSMOS": "Another Ravenna mosiac, e. A.D. 520, shows the priest-king Melchizedek in a purple cloak, offering bread and wine at the altar (Gen. 14: 18-20). The white altar cloth is decorated with two sets of gammadia, as well as the so-called "seal of melchizedek," two interlocked squares in gold. Abel offers his lamb as Abraham gently pushes Isaac forward. The hand of God reaches down to this sacred meeting through the red veils adorned with golden gammadia on either side. The theme is the great sacrifice of Christ, which brings togetherthe righteous prophets from the past as well as the four corners of the present world, thereby uniting all time and space." The intertwined squares represent 1. The four corners of the earth 2. The four tokens of the priesthood. The sphere in the center represents the light of Christ. Email with questions.
