Coloring page : Dendera Zodiac

Coloring page created from the first drawing of the Dendera Zodiac (1802). The Dendera Zodiac is one of the best-preserved ancient depictions of the observable stars. Although it contains many of the Zodiac symbols as they are known today, it is more accurately described as a star map than an astrological chart. It shows all five planets known to the Ancient Egyptians in an alignment that occurs once every one thousand years, as well as both a solar and lunar eclipse. The planet alignment allows astrophysicists to date the sky that’s depicted as having occurred sometime between June 15 and August 15, 50 BCE.
