It's very beautiful. I dont see the star pattern though so i assume there was some version of the story i havent heard as to why it's called that?
annafjellborg Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was queen in Ethiopia. She is described as very beautiful and vain and the greatest crime she committed was to claim her daughter, Andromeda, being more beautiful then all the Nereids (sea nymphs). This angered the God Poseidon. He threatened to flood the world, unless the king and queen would sacrifice their beloved daughter to the sea monster known as Cetus.
My inspiration for this piece comes from this story, as I stated in the description :)
