Glass Eye Studio - Celestial Orion's Belt

Orion's Belt, also known as the Three Kings or Three Sisters, is an asterism in the constellation Orion. It consists of the three bright stars, Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. In this broader view, the belt (The three stars in the center) is seen in relation to nearby features in the Orion constellation and it has been captured perfectly by the artists of Glass Eye Studio.

A stunning paperweight and/or decorative piece of art, The Celestial Orion's Belt Paperweight is part of the Celestial Planet Collection.  It makes a wonderful gift for both personal and corporate occasions, or it can be the perfect addition to your own Glass Eye Studio Collection.  

3" wide in diameter, it comes in a beautiful velvet keepsake box with a story card that tells its unique tale.  A blend of imagination, science, art and creativity, this Glass Eye Studio Celestial paperweight is fascinating.  There is a special effect on this dichroic glass that makes it change colour when it reflects or transmits light.  

All Glass Eye Studio products are handmade and individually crafted by artists.  They are made with the ash from Mount St. Helens volcano eruption (in Washington state) that occurred at 8:32:17 A.M. on Sunday, May 18, 1980.

Orion is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world. It is one of the most conspicuous and recognizable constellations in the night sky.  It was named after Orion, a gigantic, supernaturally strong hunter of ancient times, a hunter in Greek mythology. The earliest depiction that has been linked to the constellation of Orion is a prehistoric (Aurignacian) mammoth ivory carving found in a cave in the Ach valley in Germany in 1979. Archaeologists have estimated it to have been fashioned approximately 32,000 to 38,000 years ago. The distinctive pattern of Orion has been recognized in numerous cultures around the world, and many myths have been associated with it. It has also been used as a symbol in the modern world. Spotting the belt is actually one of the easiest ways to find the constellation Orion itself.

The Orion's Belt mystery:  The three pyramids of Giza are a perfect reproduction of the 3 stars of Orion’s belt: Like the pyramids, the three stars of Orion are not perfectly aligned, the smallest of them is slightly offset to the East. All three are slanted in a Southwesterly direction. Their orientation to the Nile recreates Orion’s orientation to the Milky Way. The layout of the pyramids, and their relative sizes were a deliberate design plan, and not the result of three king’s enormous egos as been preached as dogma by the so-called Egyptologists.

The Gods placed Orion prominently in the northern sky to hunt for all eternity!
