Sagittarius on the back of tribal men

The Sagittarius on the back of tribal men is often referred to as the Archer. It resembles a centaur with a bow and arrow, and some Sagittarius tattoos take this form. A centaur is a mythological creature, half man, half horse. The torso of a man grows from the place where the horse’s head would normally be. Centaurs are common in fantasy books and films, including the Disney film Fantasia and J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter series. A shorthand symbol of Sagittarius frequently used to represent the sign of the zodiac is an arrow, which, if placed on a compass, would point northeast. It lacks feathers at the bottom and instead has a single perpendicular line set a short distance from the base. This symbol is also often used in Sagittarius tattoos.
