Taken from: Renegade Knitwear "Archaeoastronomer" - I remember in school learning about Mayan civilization. One of the most fascinating points I learned was how such a primitive culture was so capable at astronomy. The view of the sun, planets, and stars was how they based many aspects of their life. This brilliance is found, not only in the Mayans, but all over the world, spanning countless cultures. Today, many minds come together to study more of how people of the past used astronomy in their lives. The study is known as 'Archaeoastronomy'. This shawl encompasses many elements inspired from the subject. The body uses texture and star stitch to evoke the night sky, and a mosaic border represents the many cultures below it, always learning the mystery of the sky.
