Away from city lights, the night sky is awe-inspiring. Truly an example of the Creator’s work. Our ancestors surely had the same response, and the idea of similar thoughts and beliefs carried down through millennia, is also impressive. In this piece I have focussed on the most obvious image in the night sky-the Milky Way—and one image that is seen in the same way, throughout the world. I have further tried to include many generations of man, by including the oldest religious symbol known-the triple spiral, which has been adopted and used by many belief systems in our history.
