Picture 1 and 3 are rock carving pictures from Sweden pictures. The 2. picture shows the Milky Way contours in a star map, but under favourable conditions you can observe a little more details than showed on the star map contours, of course depending on your visual power.


Picture 1 and 2 is from Sweden, Bohuslen County. Picture 3 show the typical astronomical contours of the Milky Way. Picture 4 is an Egypt relief. All pictures are showing the same object as the star map picture. The wheel figure on picture 2 shows that the figure are revolving around a centre point, namely the circum polar centre. The same are the case on the Egypt picture, but here are the circumpolar centre point symbolized with a five-pointed star between the female and the male figure who also shows an erected penis as on the other pictures.

Picture 1 with the horned man shows the most detailed contours of the northern Milky Way figure. But our ancestors also saw the Milky Way contours as animals and even as a mixture of humans and animals, also depending of the actual kind of animals where our ancestors lived.


Australian Rock paintings of the Great White God and Goddess of the the Milky Way.

 From the Egypt tomb of Ramesses VI. The night sky represented as the goddess Nut. This note is the most common description of this picture. But there is more to it!

A closer look at the picture shows the sex details on the figures, with the night goddess Nut above and the night god Geb below. Again we have the 2 major figures on the night Sky, namely the Milky Way contours of the southern and northern hemisphere.

Star Atlas showing the Milky Way contours of the major and supreme god and goddess. In Japanese mythology, Onogoro was the first island created by Izanagi and Izanami. They lowered a jewelled spear into the ocean, and when they raised it, drops fell from the spear, forming the island. They built a palace on top with a great column in the middle. The couple walked around this pillar in opposite directions, and when they encountered each other, they were wed.

Below 3 motives of the Milky Way couples and a sketched Milky Way couple on the background of a galaxy structure.


Picture 1 shows a detail from a rock carving on a stone from Denmark Picture 3 is from early Stone Age in Denmark, Gentofte locality. In the middle an animated atlas picture of the northern and southern contours of the Milky Way. It is my clear opinion that both symbols shows the same motive; the Milky Way Couple with the celestial centre points.

As a object on the night sky the Milky Way figure is the biggest and when interpreted as a God and a Goddess, it also must be the biggest God and Goddess. Minor Gods and Goddess are the figures of different star constellations as we can read from many mythological sources.

World parent


There are two types of world parent myths, both describing a separation or splitting of a primeval entity, the world parent or parents. One form describes the primeval state as an eternal union of two parents, and the creation takes place when the two are pulled apart. The two parents are commonly identified as Sky (usually male) and Earth (NOT EARTH - BUT THE MILKY WAY GREAT MOTHER! IVAR) (usually female) who in the primeval state were so tightly bound to each other that no offspring could emerge. These myths often depict creation as the result of a sexual union, and serve as genealogical record of the deities born from it.

In the second form of world parent myth, creation itself springs from dismembered parts of the body of the primeval being. Often in these stories the limbs, hair, blood, bones or organs of the primeval being are somehow severed or sacrificed to transform into sky, earth, animal or plant life, and other worldly features. These myths tend to emphasize creative forces as animistic in nature rather than sexual, and depict the sacred as the elemental and integral component of the natural world.
