If this is an integrated project try reading "Arrow to the Sun" by Gerald
McDermott (Caldecott Winner re Pueblo Indians with stunning illustrations)
or "The Sun" a poem by Emily Dickenson.

Production: Try radial symmetry, perspective (close up suns, far away
suns), warm, cool colors, symbolism.

Actually this is such a broad topic that I can see Dr. Erikson developing a
cultural theme here. :)
