Hello!

Sagittarius - 'the Archer', is one of the oldest Constellations, coming from the Sumerians, and represents a half man, half horse centaur. He is said to be the inventor of archery.

Corona Australis "The Southern Crown", is said to represent the laurel wreath worn by the Greek God Dionysus.
