Artist's Description

Starfish – Karnak Temple, Egypt

Featured on the HOME PAGE – 3rd December 2011

Featured in Artists Universe

Star (seba)

The Egyptians had extended knowledge of the night sky and the stars above.

The Egyptian symbol for the stars was a symbol five-pointed line drawing, resembling the sea stars (aka “starfish”) that inhabited the Red Sea.

The infinite and unchanging nature of the stars overhead influenced the development of the Egyptian calendar and their beliefs regarding the life after death. Every Egyptian temple was a complex model of the cosmos and thus many images of the stars, constellations and stellar deities grace temple ceilings.
