    • Monk: I remember thinking that it reminded me of the constellation Cassiopeia.

      Cassiopeia, a highly visible W-shaped constellation in the northern sky, is named after a beautiful queen in Greek mythology. The wife of Cepheus, king of Ethiopia, Cassiopeia made the mistake of boasting that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the daughters of Nereus, god of the Mediterranean Sea. As punishment for her arrogance and impiety, she was ordered to sacrifice her equally beautiful daughter, Andromeda. The princess was rescued from a sea monster by Perseus, who was rewarded with her hand in marriage. The ancient Greeks visualized the constellation Cassiopeia as a woman seated on her throne with her head always pointed toward the North Star, Polaris.
