J.V. Snellman statue

Another example of tarot symbolism on statues is the J.V. Snellman statue in Helsinki, Finland. It was designed by Emil Wikström and unveiled in 1927.

The Helsinki Art Museum's introduction:
J.V. Snellman (1806-1881) was a philosopher, statesman, author and newspaperman. He designed a comprehensive plan for the development of the Finnish nation and of the state to be founded on it. He stressed the value of the Finnish language and the importance knowledge had in improving national self- awareness and action and as the precondition of a functioning state. He also finalized the monetary reform which gave Finland its own currency, the markka. Snellman's principal philosophical inspiration was Hegel, whose views he applied in his own works on government and philosophy. Snellman's memorial was commissioned from Emil Wikström. The funds were provided by a public collection.

Wikström designed a monumental and dignified sitting figure whose features were depicted in a realistic style. A plaster model was completed in 1915, but the as funds accumulated very slowly and a war was going on its casting was delayed. The work was finally unveiled in 1923. Architect Eliel Saarinen designed the statue's pedestal and surroundings.

The designer, Emil Wikström, knew tarot symbolism very well. He is the same person who designed another tarot statue mentioned in this blog before, Elias Lönnrot memorial.

The esoteric level of this statue is revealed when you get the little joke about Snellman's history. For Finns, he was "the father of the Finnish markka" (currency before euro). Being autonomous part of the Russian empire, Finland got its own currency in the 1860's. Mr. Snellman (and his close ties to the Rothschilds) played the most important role in that process.

His statue stands in front of the Finnish central bank. He is depicted sitting on a chair, like a king on his throne. And he is considered "the father of the Finnish markka". Can you do the math?

Cult of Aton - part 3: The lion

Previous part of this series: The horned Moses.

The ruling elite's Cult of Aton uses many symbols. One of the most important and most visible of them is the lion. It's a symbol you can see everywhere. You can see it in company logos, brand logos, coats of arms, movies, music industry, statues, religious art, etc. It's a very common symbol for "the Elite", but its esoteric meaning is still largely unknown for the common people.

Think about it - why is the lion in so many coats of arms of European countries? There are no lions in Europe, so why would they use such a symbol on English, Scottish, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Spanish, Bulgarian or Estonian coats of arms? Why would a country use a foreign animal on its national emblem? Wouldn't it be strange if European countries used an elephant or a kangaroo on their coats of arms?

One must understand, that the lion does not represent any nation (although many people tend to think so) or country. It represents the ruling elite and their Cult of Aton, which has it's roots in ancient Egypt. Being a sun cult, it is no surprise that the Cult of Aton uses the astrological symbol of the Sun as their emblem. The lion represents Leo - the Sun sign. (Sun is the planetary ruler of Leo.)

After the so called "Israelites", meaning the followers of pharaoh Akhenaton and the Cult of Aton, were kicked out of Egypt, what symbol did they use? The symbol of the Sun - the so called Lion of Judah.

Lion is like a gang sign of these Atonists. And they sure like to use it widely.  The amount of lion symbolism around us is massive:

Templar symbolism: the lion

Cult of Aton - part 2: The horned Moses

Previous part of this series: Akhenaton and the Hyksos kings.

Have you ever wondered why the Michelangelo's famous Moses statue is depicted with horns?

Michelangelo was not the only one to put horns on Moses' head:

The exoteric level for the horns is explained in Wikipedia like this:
The depiction of a horned Moses stems from the description of Moses' face as "cornuta" ("horned") in the Latin Vulgate translation of the passage found at Exodus chapter 34, specifically verses 29, 30 and 35, in which Moses returns to the people after receiving the commandments for the second time. The Douay-Rheims Bible translates the Vulgate as, "And when Moses came down from the mount Sinai, he held the two tables of the testimony, and he knew not that his face was horned from the conversation of the Lord." This was Jerome's effort to faithfully translate the difficult, original Hebrew Masoretic text, which uses the term, karan (based on the root, keren, which often means "horn"); the term is now interpreted to mean "shining" or "emitting rays" (somewhat like a horn).

Just a little error in translation, nothing to see here!

The esoteric level for the horns tells us another story.

First, you need to know that the true identity of Moses was pharaoh Akhenaton. Second, you need to understand what the horns represented in his home-country Egypt. Third, you need to understand where this "conversation with the Lord" that grew horns on his head took place.

The horns have been associated with deities in many cultures around the world. In Egypt, one of the most famous deity with horns was the goddess Isis. Being a goddess of the Moon, she wore horns, which represent the crescent moon.

Interestingly, the scene of the "horned Moses" took place at Mount Sinai. The name Sinai refers to the ancient Moon god Sin.

So why all these references to the Moon?

The "translation mistake" mentioned in the Wikipedia article is not really a mistake. It's a typical play on words in esoteric symbolism. Both translations, "horns" and "emitting rays" are correct and refer to the same thing - the Moon.

The Moon doesn't shine its own light - it's just an illusion. The light we see is a reflection of the Sun. In esoteric traditions the Moon represents an illusion and hidden secrets.

Illusion and secrets. You begin to see Michelangelo's joke? He was in the know. He knew that the biblical "Moses" was nothing but a cover-up story, a hidden in plain sight secret, to hide the true identity of the leader of the "Israelites". He knew, that "Moses" was just an illusion - a reflection of Akhenaton.

The Sun and the Moon - Akhenaton and Moses.

"As we assert, the biblical Israelites were followers of renegade Akhenaton, the biblical Moses, and their powerful descendants have sought to keep this fact from the world." - Michael Tsarion (The Irish Origins of Civilization, vol. 2)
