Libra gets its ancient identity from two nearby constellations. Setting in the southwest, Virgo, the innocent virgin, is being chased by the scorpion, which is rising in the southeast. The ancient Greeks called the Libra "Chelae" which means Claws. The two brightest stars of Libra were commonly identified as the claws of the scorpion. In fact, two of Libra's stars still bear the Arabic names, Zubeneschamali and Zubenelgenubi, meaning respectively, "Northern Claw" and "Southern Claw." Zubeneschamali also has a very faint greenish tinge: the only green naked-eye star. Later, the Romans saw this area of sky as a set of scales.
With this design, I was inspired by both the scale symbol and the Scorpio claws. I also added some moon phases and stars. Obviously, I couldn't resist adding a pile of skulls in the design!
