This pattern is very old. The rug is a re-creation of a sand painting from sacred ceremonies. Father Sky contains the Sun and Moon and important constellations. Mother Earth contains the four sacred plants: corn, beans, tobacco and squash.
The element near Father Sky is a medicine pouch and the one near Mother Earth is a bat. They are "guardians".
