It personifies  the unity of the world. It is a sort of a small model  of the Universe and a human being where there is a place for everything and everybody. Horizontally the tree  and  space around it  is divided into 4 parts , representing time (morning, afternoon,evening and night ; spring, summer, autumn and winter) and space (east, west, south, north) . Vertically it is divided into three parts – lower (roots)- underground world; middle(trunk)-green world and upper part (leaves and branches)-heavens. Different creatures inhabit them- in the lower part (water)there are frogs, snakes,fishes, and water birds. In the middle (land) there are big animals such as: deers, horses, bears, wolves. It is also the world of people. The upper part is inhabited by birds and bees. There are also stars and planets here.
