Description The paper deals with small clay finds from the burial ground in Moravičany (Šumperk district), which were found in chamber tomb No. 1147 belonging to the Platěnice culture. Two of them were in the shape of a cross in a circle, one was in the shape of a swastika and the last one in the shape of a triquetrum. All of them are characterised by having a central spike. All these motifs (a cross in a circle, a swastika and a triquetrum) are universally associated with solar symbolism.
