Country of Origin: EGYPT

As seen by this papyrus artwork, the Ancient Egyptians understood the significance of the Sun, Moon, and Stars. This calendar is a fantastic illustration of ancient Egyptian mythology. The Temple of Dandara in Luxor is where the Egyptian Calendar was first found. The 12 Zodiac signs, along with humans and animals, are depicted in the middle of this calendar. The zodiac is supported by four female deities and the god Horus (8 times). Horus stands for the four directions, and the goddess for the four seasons.

 The twelve months are symbolized by adding the goddesses and Horus together. The total hands, or the number of hours in a day, equals 24 if we add them all up. The result is 120 if we take the number of fingers (10) and multiply it by 12 (8 Horus, 4 goddesses). When we divide 120 by 2, we get 60, which represents both the 60 seconds in a minute and the 60 minutes in an hour. The story is written in the hieroglyphs on the side.

The Dendera Zodiac is proof of how well the ancient Egyptians could map the skies.
