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 (or hair pigtail) 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, i.e. "henge outward".
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, 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.
Admin: It appears as if there is a back and forth dialogue between two posters, the second posting is treated as a reply, which it does not have to be. It could be a new unrelated posting.

Admin: I am doing some experimenting with the ProBoards functions. That accounts for the following Shoutbox postings. It is not intended as a "reply" to anyone so I am interested as to how ProBoards treats this ShoutBox posting, since only a reply option is shown

eddie: Andis, In your email of Aug 10, "Proto-European prehistoric peoples wished to 'fill' stones with life, for the ancients were puzzles that 'stones did not grow' as other things in nature did." That is a very interesting idea. How did you develop? Tks,
