Background information

The Dendera Zodiac is a widely known Egyptian bas-relief and was added to the ceiling of a chapel dedicated to Osiris inside the Hathor Temple in the Dendera Temple complex around 50 BC. The Dendera Zodiac is one of the best-preserved ancient depictions of the observable stars. It shows all five planets known to the Ancient Egyptians in an alignment that occurs once every one thousand years and both a solar and lunar eclipse. The sky disc is centered on the north pole star, and Ursa Minor is depicted as a jackal. An inner disc is composed of constellations showing the signs of the zodiac. The original Zodiac of Dendera currently resides at the Louvre in Paris.
