Art, myth, ritual, and crafts like astrology, all derive from archetype. This post demonstrates the Senmut pseudo-astronomical ceiling as an example. Culture is sustained and standardised by subconscious expression. I did not design archetype, or this quirky cultural expression of archetypal structure. I merely identify and demonstrate this expression. Astronomical figures are not primarily zodiac figures, since they are not conventionalised. However their ranges of attributes, their sequence, and their relative positioning are highly standardised, forming a mindprint.
The set of archetypes in this artwork is listed here, in the standard sequence, with their mythical month or zodiac names (as archetypes, not constellations), with the universal average frequencies of some common attributes in brackets.
Demonstrations of archetypal structure in many more artworks (already about 700) and building sites (already about 100), adds evidence that the subconscious structure in artworks, or any craft, or cultural media, does not ‘come from’ drugs, or trance, or constellations, or diffusion from any particular culture. Even cosmology is natural and archetypal, not primarily a cultural artefact.
