Stonehenge Sarsen #29 Back Side as Perseus Surrounding Stars Family & Weaving Loom

Stonehenge Sarsen #29 has a very large mark on its back side and then, at first glance, nothing else, but close inspection shows very faint markings on the stone which via graphic software can be identified as marking the stars of Perseus and surrounding stars, thus portraying a family with mother and child, both skillfully integrated into the shape of the Milky Way at that point, plus a pet dog, equally skillfully integrated into a hole in the Milky Way by shape, plus the presumed father of the family as the weaver on an ancient weaving loom running from top to bottom on the stone representation.

We first show the most prominent lines and markings visible on the stone via our graphic software (Paint Shop Pro 7) and next to that image the sky region of comparable stars via a clip via Starry Night Pro 3.1 astronomy software. The first image is the simple version. The detailed version is the second image. The third image shows a comparable stone-marked loom from Neolithic USA.

(simple version)

The henge-inward side of Stonehenge Sarsen #29 represents Perseus, Aries & Triangulum as father "weaver" with a loom. We found a similar loom represented at Perseus and surrounding stars at the Shelton Mound Complex in Alabama, USA, with the Milky Way, Andromeda and Cassiopeia as mother and child, plus domesticated dog as the empty space there in the Milky Way.

The "forked" end of the dark line angling in the middle of Sarsen 29 in ca. 1800 B.C., around the time estimated for the building of Stonehenge by archaeologists, marks one end of the right "leg" of Perseus at the Ecliptic Meridian, while the "arrowed" end of that angling dark line marks the Celestial Meridian, which combined mark the Vernal Equinox at about the Pleiades in that era. The Ecliptic is then marked by the bottom of Sarsen 29 on the ground.

We identified Perseus and surrounding stars as representing a weaving loom already in our book Sky Earth Native America (see the links further below), finding such an apparently Neolithic warp-weighted backstrap-type loom represented by various markers at the Shelton Stone Mound Complex near Jacksonville, Alabama, USA. Evidence of ancient seafaring? Surely.

Markings on stone so closely resembling an ancient loom, which is already quite a piece of complicated machinery in the Neolithic (Stone Age) era, are not likely to appear on a stone by chance, nor could the present decipherer ever hope to imagine or draw such a piece of equipment by scratch, never having had any previous loom contact whatsoever. Rather, much fundamental background reading had to be done to find out exactly what the ancients were representing and how it worked as one of man's greatest inventions.

    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.


    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."
