Stonehenge Heel Stone Decipherment as Puppis ("Nessie") Canis Major Surrounding Stars - Stonehenge Panorama 20A by Andis Kaulins

NOTICE: There are THREE images in this posting so make sure you view them all. If you want to experience the thrill of decipherment work, look only at the first two images and try your hand at doing what we have done -- our full DECIPHERMENT SOLUTION is found in the third image.

Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 20A by Andis Kaulins -The Heel Stone as the Stars of Puppis (Apophis viz. "Nessie-Like"), Canis Major, Surrounding Stars and Milky Way (perhaps the "Nessie" legend is related to the ancient belief e.g. in Ancient Egypt concerning the deceased-consuming denizen of the deep)

If we now turn around at this point in our tour and look away from the inner henge of Stonehenge outward, we find ourselves face-to-face with the so-called "Heel Stone" ... the most famous of all the stones at Stonehenge.

If our decipherment of Stonehenge is correct and we have done our homework properly up to this juncture, the Heel Stone can only represent stars of Puppis and/or its surrounding stars in that "galactic" Milky Way region.

It turns out in fact according to our analysis that each side of the Heel Stone represents neighboring stars in that Puppis sky section, so that one side of the Heel Stone meshes perfectly with the other in portraying two directly neighboring sections of the heavens.

The "Heel Stone" side with the large incised "mouth" of Apophis pointing to the right marks the stars of Puppis, plus some stars we today assign to the constellations Pyxis, Vela and Carina.

The "Heel Stone" side with the large incised "mouth" of Apophis pointing to the left represents a few stars we today place on the border of Puppis, but mostly stars in Canis Major and Columba.

It is really incredible after these thousands of years and after the damage done to these stones by wind, weather, and humanity, that so much can still be recovered through the use of modern photography and imaging software.

Both sides of the Heel Stone have figures carved upon them, most prominent being the large-mouthed Apophis, represented by the entire stone as the galactic underworld "Nessie" that in ancient lore consumed the deceased. We already found Apophis pictured on Stone #10 at Avebury, so that this ancient belief is tradition, also at Stonehenge, prior to the Christian era.

Each stone also represents a different human head, wearing a headdress.
There are other figures on the stone as well, in our opinion, but nothing is gained for the present time by drawing attention to them as we must at this stage in the decipherment process stick to the essentials only.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
