Baltic World Tree

Baltic World Tree
 
The notion of a sun tree, or world tree, is one of the most important concepts regarding the cosmos. This tree grows at the edge of the path of Saule, and the setting sun (Saule) hangs her belt on the tree in preparation for rest. It is usually considered to be an oak but is also described as a linden or some other kind of tree. http://www.britannica.com/facts/5/533414/world-tree-as-discussed-in-Baltic-religion
