Dog days

Ahhh. I always wandered why the Egyptian „Dog days“ were located on the solar year at the hottest part of the year, the end of July, beginning of August…So I looked at the Ancient Egyptian dog breeds…

First thing I found out that the Ancient Egyptian loved hunting dogs.

And that their word for „hunting dog“ was „Tesem“. And that it was written in hieroglyphics using the image of a prick-eared, leggy dog with a curled tail from the early Egyptian age…

There were three main types of dogs in Ancient Egypt: pariah dog (basenji), two kinds of greyhound-like dogs and a molosser-type dog….And the one shown on Tesem hieroglyph is definitely the „pariah dog“ known in Egypt as basenji.

The „pariah dog“ is the name given to the half wild dog species still found around the world. They are the closest we still have to the old wild dogs…And they have preserved one important characteristic of wild dogs: They have one breading season…

Animism, Rebirth and the World Tree in Ancient Iranian Art and Religion — Surviving the Kali Yuga

Das Gastmahl der Sterne

Gastmahl der Sterne

Leonardo Da Vinci’s Werk `Das Abendmahl´ steckt voller Rätsel. In dem Bild, das er im Refektorium des Dominikanerklosters Santa Maria delle Grazie in Mailand malte, zeigt er den Augenblick des Verrates während der letzten Zusammenkunft der Apostel mit Jesus. Ihre ausdrucksvollen Gesten vermitteln dem Betrachter eine scheinbar authentische Atmosphäre des Geschehens. Doch hinter der malerischen Erzählung verbirgt sich eine Komposition, die nicht nur die pythagoreische Zahlensymbolik, sondern auch das Jahrtausende alte astrologische Wissen widerspiegelt. Damit ist das Werk auch ein einzigartiges Bekenntnis für die Gedanken des von Leonardo geschätzten römischen Dichters und Philosophen Lukrez.
