Really interesting content, thanks for sharing.

The pentagram is a uniquely powerful symbol. Truly man has the number 5 written on his soul.
    Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven, and gazing on the earth,
     Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth, -
And ever-changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

-Percy Bysshe Shelley

This is actually very common in a lot of ancient art in the middle east until the rise of monotheism. A lot of art and religion was very stellar based in the reigion, for whatever reason. It's worth noting that it seems unique to that area though. Go to maritame culture like the Minoans and Mycaneans and it's all focused on the sea rather than sky.
