Zodiac

The zodiac has always been an integral part of the Jewish culture. In the Book of Kings II (C. 23 V 5) it clearly describes the role of "…the sun and moon, to the constellations and to all the starry hosts…"

 

The archeological discovery of the Beth-Alpha synagogue with its mosaic floor, which was very well preserved, includes a Zodiac circle, with four female figurines on each corner who symbolize the four seasons. This was the background to Tamar's decision to give a new illustrated commentary to the Zodiac, using Israel's landscape and the typical  views of each season.
