Hé Avry,

In "DATING THE CEILING OF SENMUT" you emphasise an orientational aspect of one detail of the whole ceiling.

The ceiling as a whole seems to be a rather distorted representation of the sky, with what looks to me like some totally fictitious star groups.

The detail of the three stars that you discus in your article might very well be a representation of Orions belt, but:

1. why would this group of stars be a realistic star-group-image, while the other groups are not?

2. why would the orientation of this group as a whole be interpreted as exact, while the "bend" wihtin the group (an offset of about 3 degrees) is far from an exact representation of the real offset in the sky.

Regards,
Jeff

P.S.: why are you so upset about Jim's posts? These kind of things happen all the time. You cannot control this MB from behind your own computer.
