In Chinese astronomy Sirius is known as the star of the 'celestial wolf' (Chinese and Japanese: 天狼; Chinese romanization: Tiānláng; Japanese romanization: Tenrō). It is located in the Mansion of Jǐng (井宿).Several cultures also associated the star with a bow and arrows. The Ancient Chinese visualized a large bow and arrow across the southern sky, formed by the constellations of Puppis and Canis Major. In this, the arrow tip is pointed at the wolf Sirius.
