The scene shows the Astrological Calendar (Zodiac). It is considered as the first calendar in history. It reflects the importance of sun and moon in Ancient Egyptian mythology. It was originally discovered in the Temple of Dandara in Luxor. Each unit in the calendar represents a specific time measurement of the calendar: Horus represents the four directions of the earth, and the goddesses represent the 4 seasons. The months are represented by adding the goddesses and Horus, for a total of twelve. If we add the total number of hands, it is 24, or the hours in the day. That Zodiac is considered as the first Calendar in Ancient Egyptian history.
