This Forgotten Egyptian Dish Reveals Early Astronomical Symbols of Key Constellations

While traveling in Egypt for my studies, I came across a unique artifact in the Nubian Museum in Aswan. It was a dish which had not been recognized for the important information it holds. As soon as I saw it in 2008, I immediately understood that I had found myself in front of an “astronomical-mythological” object of enormous value.

The object goes unrecognized even today – not only among archaeologists, but also from my own colleagues who work with ancient knowledge and sacred science – simply because the discovery is unknown.

Orion and the Pharaoh: Divine Hunters

Let me introduce the artifact’s key image: Orion is known by the ancients as the constellation of the “Heavenly Hunter.” Sometimes the hunter is depicted with a club, but more often with a bow, and sometimes he is also shown with a lion skin. The posture this constellation assumes in the sky perfectly matches that of the Egyptian pharaoh when he was depicted as the “Divine Warrior” and “Egypt’s Divine Defender”.  There is a parallel between the lines that form the silhouette of this constellation and the pharaoh's profile in the earliest dynasties (for example, in the Narmer tablet).
