Artist's Description

Capricornus the sea goat.
It represents a goat with a fish tail. In ancient times the Sun lay in Capricornus at the winter solstice, its farthest point south of the equator. The effect of precession has now moved the winter solstice into neighbouring Sagittarius, but the latitude on earth at which the sun appears overhead on that day is still known as the tropic of Capricorn.
