HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHURA! January 12!
Capricorn is represented by a sea-goat. It's related to the god Aegipan (but also Pan), who helped Zeus against the Titans and had his image put among the stars as a reward.
Another myth says it represents the goat Amalthea, that took care of Zeus when he was a child. Sumerians thought it was a Nubian ibex but this constellation was bigger because it included also the stars of Aquarius.
All in all it was seen as an important constellation: sea-goats (and goats) were sacred icons related to gods of water.
In Egypt it was an ibis or a fish and was related to the god Khnum, who had a predominant role among the deities.
This year I will be drawing a picture for every gold saint’s birthday! They will be “disguised” as the symbol of their constellation
Last years I tried too, but I made just fews pics [link] [link]
