Mirrors of Orion
The phrase "As above, so below" is attributed to the Egyptian god of wisdom named Thoth. This echoes the biblical expression "on earth as it is in heaven." Many diverse ancient cultures have erected sacred cities, pyramids, standing stones, or temples in order to mirror the stars. In particular the constellation Orion has been repeatedly projected as a talismanic pattern on numerous landscapes around the world.
This book describes the sky-ground templates of Egypt, the American Southwest, Mexico, Nazca, the UK, Europe, Syria, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, and other regions. It also discusses the celestial rituals of the Mithras cult, the Age of Taurus, the Sirius cosmology of the Dogon, and South African rock art. This essential archaeo-astronomy primer expands the star correlation theory to encompass the entire globe. Packed with nearly 225 photos, drawings, diagrams, maps, and star charts.
"As above, so below. The parallels Gary David has found between the ancient Egyptian sky-ground system involving the pyramids of Giza and the constellation of Orion, and a similar project to build heaven on earth by the Hopi of Arizona, are eerie, compelling and deeply thought-provoking." -Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods
"Gary David's work is a treasure of enormous importance." -William Henry, author of Lost Secrets of the Watchers
"The correlation Mr. David makes between the Hopi and Egyptian 'sky-view' is most interesting." -Robert Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery
"...a must-read for pre-Columbian aficionados and aspiring anthropologists alike." -Ross Hamilton, author of Star Mounds
