Bree: So, usually, I don't like to talk about my religion. But, with the Ceremony coming up and all it's kinda the only thing on my mind. So, with the help of Lucy and Owen I've been learning a lot about the Zodiac of Denderah. (Bree holds Owen up to her ear, as if he's whispering something to her.) Owen says Napoleon's troops reached Denderah on May 25, 1799. (more whispers from Owen) He also says he feels uncomfortable wearing a pink feather boa. No one really knows who was the first to enter the temple, but it was probably a man named Vivant Denon, a Parisian artist who was traveling with Napoleon's troops. (Owen whispers to Bree.) Now, Denon made sketches of the Zodiac that was carved into the temple roof and he sent them back to Paris. (Cut to Bree wrapped in the feather boa, doing a hoity-toity voice.) They caused quite the stir among the aristocracy. (back to normal voice) Such a stir that in 1820 Jean Lelorrain, a French engineer, was sent back to secretly remove the original Zodiac and replace it with a copy. (Cut to Bree lying on the bed.) So, here's some things I've been learning about the Zodiac of Denderah. There are thirty-six decans or constellations. Each of these decans rise above the horizon at dawn for ten days every year. Sopdet is the most important. There's a common misconception that the Zodiac of Denderah is incorrect. It's not that it's inaccurate, it's just that the stars in the decans used to be a lot brighter. In the Denderah Zodiac, the week is ten days long instead of seven. I wonder if those extra days were weekends. (Bree dances around her bedroom while music plays for awhile. The video then returns to Bree on her bed.) In the Zodiac the night sky is supported by four women under the canopy of heaven. There's also an earth god named Geb, he can be found supporting the other side of the sky. Pretty cool, huh? (Bree is now lying on the bed, holding the camera above her. She makes some swooshing noises.) The Zodiac of Denderah is actually pretty similar to the modern day one. Umm... Cancer the Crab is a Scarab Beetle. The lion near the scales is Centaurus. And the woman and the man holding hands is the modern day Gemini. (Bree has now covered her face in her turtleneck sweater.) Anyway... sorry if that was boring. (She pulls the sweater off her face.) I think it's interesting.
- The decans may be dimmer today due to light pollution.
- The box first appears in this video in place of the picture of the three boys, and is closed.
