MS3 is buzzing around my brain. I now think the motif in the point is a likely a bee. It fits even better with my original guess of the Goddess Neith, the weaver, the wearer of the veil, deity of the sky (light and dark). The Temple of Neith in Sau (Sais), Egypt, is known as the House of the Bee.
"The Veil of Neith" sounds like a good shawl name, too.
Or a thousand other guesses.
It probably really is a NASCAR checkered-flag theme. Ha!
