Its a manifestation of the raw power of flame. This is really good work.

Sheer magnitude and indication of scale delivered with flawless technique. The sword-arms roughly resemble the shape of swastika, pointing to a well-conceived composition. Great work!

You know, it's awesome that you notice that! 
We practice hinduism in my household, since my fiancee is Indian.  Agni is a favorite god of mine, and to be perfectly honest, I didn't even see that, at first! 
...
A point of solely academic intent: when the symbol is left-facing, it is often called "sauvastika", and the other right-facing is more correctly spelled "svastika", because that's how it is spelled in Hindi.
Since it is a symbol of good fortune and wellness, spelling it thusly helps people distinguish it from the German use of the symbol.
I'd hate for anyone to make a mistaken assumption and think you were saying there was Nazi symbolism here. They'd be stupid if they did, of course, and clearly you definitely know the meaning, but, you know how people are, sometimes.  :)

1 I Laud Agni, the chosen Priest, God, minister of sacrifice,
The hotar, lavishest of wealth.
2 Worthy is Agni to be praised by living as by ancient seers.
He shall bring hitherward the Gods.
3 Through Agni man obtaineth wealth, yea, plenty waxing day by day,
Most rich in heroes, glorious.
4 Agni, the perfect sacrifice which thou encompassest about
Verily goeth to the Gods.
5 May Agni, sapient-minded Priest, truthful, most gloriously great,
The God, come hither with the Gods.
6 Whatever blessing, Agni, thou wilt grant unto thy worshipper,
That, Aṅgiras, is indeed thy truth.
7 To thee, dispeller of the night, O Agni, day by day with prayer
Bringing thee reverence, we come
8 Ruler of sacrifices, guard of Law eternal, radiant One,
Increasing in thine own abode.
9 Be to us easy of approach, even as a father to his son:
Agni, be with us for our weal.

Damn awesome.  Hindu myth has a goat headed fellow.  Daksha ! the son of Brahma who hated Shiva.  People forget he is the original Baphomet !
