The Twin Towers of Babel
The "little" Tower of Babel, painted by Pieter Brueghel the Elder, c. 1563 is a beautiful and haunting painting of mastery and what I personally feel to be a work of synchromistic foreshadowing.. The tower ascends so high into the sky that a dark storm cloud billows off of one of it's massive walls.
In Genesis 11:9 it was said, "Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the Earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad the face of the Earth."
Babel or Balal, meaning to confuse or confound is exactly what took place on 9/11. It was an event that confused all of the worlds people which has lead us on the path to war, scattering us all over the Earth, reigning lies, deceit, and misery. It has attempted to destroy the only true word; LOVE and replace it with FEAR in order to keep all of the people confused and distracted by unseen enemies and boogie men lurking around every corner and under every bed.
My drawing, The Twin Towers of Babel is a reference to that exactly, while acknowledging the archetypal stories and patterns of the past while a few tiny elite seemingly fall into a synchromistic pattern of their own with an unrelenting lust towards, GOD-hood!.
