Orion vs Scorpio

 
,
by: Alex Jones



When i gave me the name Orion Pax
i knew it was the former identity of Optimus Prime
back on Cybertron.

When i gave me the name Orion Pax
i knew it was the former identity of Optimus Prime
back on Cybertron.
I also knew about the constellation Orion.
What i didn´t know and what Kevin J.Walter made
me aware of, was the greek mythology around the name Orion.
So according to several orgin Orion was a great greek hunter.
His fathers were Zeus, Poseidon and Hermes who mixed their semen in a bag of bullskin....
He was able to walk over water and had two dogs
Sirius and Procyon on his hunting journeys.
He was very skillful and began to boasting of his skills.
The gods punished him for his big ego by sending
Scorpius to earth to fight against Orion to finally kill him with a sting
into his foot.
In Orion's last dying breaths he begged not to be placed near the scorpion.
So orion dominates the winter skies and the scorpion the summer skies.
So now i know why my girlfriend, who is very supportive with my sleeping behaviors
beeing up all night building on this things, she actually is scorpion and i´m Aquarius:O
Well there is a saying that extremes are healthy for relationships;)

In the creation you can find a lot of hints to the text above.
Also i tried to get the greek myth feeling a lot in there.
I had to spraypaint the microfigs and the stuff for the statue.
The Pegasus is built and i wish i had more of those new 2x2 roundbricks.
They really bring the right feeling to it i guess.

Thanks to Kevin for the endless debates and the right decision ;)
