🎨 Artwork you Love <3

Discounting the perimeter ‘eyes’ of the shell, there are 13 big ‘eye’ shell pieces in the center.

Makes me wonder if tied to the lunar calendar of 13 months.

So cool to see how this image repeats itself in nature:

APOLLON (Apollo) was the Olympian god of prophecy and oracles, music, song and poetry, archery, healing, plague and disease, and the protection of the young. He was depicted as a handsome, beardless youth with long hair and attributes such as a wreath and branch of laurel, bow and quiver of arrows, raven, and lyre.

And Light and Truth :heart_eyes:

Pardon my French my Dearest Beloved, but you really fucking rock and I fucking GOD you so much!!!

:green_heart:

" In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo (Ancient Greek Ἀπόλλων, Apóllōn; or Ἀπέλλων, Apellōn) was the god of light, truth, archery, music, medicine and healing but also the bringer of deathly plague. The mythological son of Zeus and Leto, he was the twin brother of Artemis (goddess of the moon).

As one of the most popular of the Olympian deities and the patron of the ancient Oracle at Delphi, Apollo was considered to have dominion over medicine (through his son Asclepius), over colonists, was the defender of herds and flocks and the patron of music and poetry. More importantly, he was eventually identified with the Sun god Helios usurping the latter god’s place in the Greek pantheon. However, Apollo and Helios remained separate beings in literary and mythological texts.[1]"

Terrace of the Lions
The island of Delos, recognized as the birthplace of the god Apollo, has been a sacred area used for various reasons throughout history. Today it is one of the most important archaeological sights in Greece and is covered in excavations, one of which is the famous Terrace of the Lions. This terrace was erected and dedicated to Apollo by the people of Naxos just before 600 BCE. The terrace consisted of a row of nine to twelve marble carved lions that faced eastward towards the Sacred Lake of Delos along the Sacred Way from Skardana Bay to the temples. The lions, with their mouths open as if roaring or snarling, were both meant to guard the sanctuaries and to inspire a feeling of divine fear among the worshippers. The way in which they were positioned is similar to the way sphinxes were set up along avenues in ancient Egypt. Today, only five of the original lions remain with remnants of three others and the headless body of another has been transported and put over the main gate of a Venetian arsenal.

could it be the representation of five rivers?

Bingo, its the 5 Great Lakes, each pouring into eachother, and all those lakes are connected to rivers, some of which empty into the ocean.

Your intuition was amazing with this one! I am shocked you were able to nail its essence with both guesses!

Dearest Beloved, if you use google maps you can get a sense for how massive these ‘beings of water’ are, compare them to the size of Portugal, they are basically fresh water seas or baby oceans…

@BlessingsDeers do you recognize any of the ‘top secret’ symbols they depict from Newtons journals?!?!?!?
(35min - 38min of vid)

“Newton was convinced that divine mysteries are inherent in nature…”

" Its generally fascinating that someone who is seen as the epitome of the Scientific Revolution and early Enlightenment should show as deep an interest in Alchemy and Occult Science as Newton"
