The Constellation ORION and its main stars:

Orion the Hunter and his Dog, Canis Major: (I've used Stellarium 0.7.1 for this image and the next)

Same image, but just the stars:

The Fool, "Le MAT", Marseilles Tarot:

The Orion-Fool connection (amazing!):

By the way, as Kwaw has already explained elsewhere, the hebrew word for Orion, Kesil (KSYL), means Fool

Hi ThanatEros

Welcome aboard.! I agree, no coincidence. Orion is also called the abode of Osiris in Egyptian star lore. Sumerians with Ninurta and Ea. See image from and Sumerian Royal Cylinder seal here:
