Avebury Stone #10 Left Side and the Corresponding Stars

The Great Avebury Challenge - Avebury Stone #10
Left Side and Corresponding Stars by Andis Kaulins

The image below compares the left side of Avebury Stone #10 with its corresponding stars, primarily the stars of Cancer, although the head and bosom of the female are marked by stars of Leo and Ursa Major. These are the stars to the left of those marked on the front side of Avebury Stone #10, with "left" as viewed from the back.

The entire "art" motif of the left side of Avebury Stone #10 is nearly the same as the so-called Neo-Assyrian Nubian Tribute Bearer, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The near identity of the two motifs can be seen in the next posting.

The underlying star map below is clipped from the astronomy software Starry Night Pro, http://astronomy.starrynight.com, which is the standard astronomy program we use. The decipherer Andis Kaulins has added the thick colored lines by way of explanation.
