The Constellation of Orion
 
The Mayan perception of the First-Three-Stone-Place in the Constellation Orion. At the apex of the triangle is the star Alnitak. The bottom left is the star Saiph, while the bottom right is Rigel. At the center of this sacred triangle is the Great Orion Nebula M-42, the actual birth place of thousands of stars.
 
This is what people all over the world perceived before 3,000 BCE when they looked up at the night sky. The real key to the universal idea of rebirth concerning this constellation of stars.
