anti-Semitism in Arizona?

On our holiday to Arizona last week, we stayed at a motel in Sedona and saw these images on the concrete curbs in the parking areas.  This looks to be a variation of a swastika, a symbol known to many cultures and often used to signify the sun.




When the motel manager saw me photographing these curbs, he said these were a common motif in the art of the southwest.



Sadly, any artistic rendering of a symbol that is similar to a swastika, or is a variation of a swastika prompts thoughts of anti-Semitic intent in the minds of some persons.

We must stop seeing “anti-Semitism” everywhere, or in everything.  If these images offend you, deal with it.

This last pic is the most colorful.
