The owls are not what they seem.

Sometimes, just sometimes, an owl statue is just an owl statue.

Has is occurred to anyone, that this sort of reaction is just what they were looking for? To draw even more people in?

Some of those statues are just incredible looking.

Beware of those who claim to speak for or represent the Illuminati
We have many enemies that wish to undermine us

Such videos are not put out by the Illuminati and as such are fake as are the claims of nefarious activities

Freedom is a false ideal
Are you free to murder or steal
Non truly want chaos
The Universal Design is that of order, peace and co operation with the welfare of All in mind
All are their own sovereign in reality
A beggar is equal to a King but for belief ... every child born breathes the same air
Money only has the value that you invest belief into
It is but paper or digits on a screen

Again just because many conspiracy sites and videos claim the Illuminati is behind all that ails the world does not make it true

Thank you for making sense
Yes sometimes an Owl is just an Owl or an artists imagination at work
These owls are stunning and worthy of praise rather than looking for some perceived ill intent

I can tell you as a former Art History minor and Fine Art major, every piece of notable art is examined for its historical significance, meaning, artist-intent, and artist-influence. Art, indeed, has profound thought behind it. Serious artists pore over their work. It does not just 'happen' to look like it does, by chance. And anyone seriously critiquing art considers a three-dimensional piece from 360° and in context of its setting.

Of course there's always deeper meaning, but seldom is it nefarious, as some here are trying to portray.

Eye of the beholder, I guess.

Indeed, they are very incredible looking -- that didn't just happen by coincidence.

Keep in mind, a blank white owl-canvas statue was what each artist was given to start. So these artists did not come up with the owl idea themselves -- they attached ideas to it. Moreover, the artists were selected, it wasn't random. And the owl is a very significant symbol of secret societies and of esoteric knowledge. I feel like we have been given a glimpse into what the symbol means.

As an artist, myself, I know I've spent countless hours fine-tuning the most minute detail of a piece to get it to say exactly what I want it to say.

I cannot do the same with words, but I can with visual imagery.

I am an artist and understand the deeper meanings but find no ill intent
Yet most of the public will see the artistic owls as artistic owls and enjoy them

As Seagull stated ... it is in the eye of the beholder

I think nearly every artist is drawn to the nefarious, perverse, shocking, political, personal, affronting...etc...

What leapt to my mind as I typed that is Heironymous Bosch's 'The Garden of Earthly Delights.' There is a man impaled in the as$ by an arrow as he boards the Ship of Fools.

Keep in mind the work was done around 1490 and yet the imagery is centuries ahead of its time.

I am the same yet understand that each viewer takes their own meaning regardless of the artist's intent

People generally love Owls and yes it is common to associate the Owl with wisdom

In reality an Owl is an Owl and symbolic of itself
A rose is a rose yet associated with love but in reality a rose is a rose

Symbols contain knowledge only for those who are looking for it
Mostly the public cares little for esoteric meanings

Ill intent? I don't see ill-intent in the art decorating the owls. I see an opportunity to see what's in front of our faces. The ill-intentions come from elsewhere.

Kind of off topic a little bit, or maybe just tangentially on topic... Whichever.

How often, when you show, do people completely miss your intent? I mean wildly off the mark? I'm not an artist, though I delude myself into thinking I can write...so I'm curious.

C'est ne pas une pipe.

This is not a pipe -- it is a picture of a pipe.

The owl is the canvas and the artists have been selected for whatever reason. Each owl is has an incredible amount of thought, planning, and work put into its final design. Each owl is placed purposely in a spot at which it will be displayed. Each artist is influenced uniquely.

All of these ideas can/will/should be analyzed and each carries some revelation about each piece. As do the titles.

As an artist I have studied symbols, astronomy, mythology, hidden knowledge, sacred geometry etc
I use these as tools to express ideas
When exhibiting I find it fascinating to hear what others think they mean
And Yes a lot are wildly off the mark of my intent but I like that each sees in their own way

I haven't shown in years. I make my living now as a print graphic designer. And my intent becomes so clear in graphic design, that I am sometimes asked to change things because it is not the project manager's vision.

Sure ... I agree ... I look at the deeper implications
I was just pointing out that mostly the public see things on face value

I'll agree, but we often share common interpretations. Like the Owl done in the etched, dark green scrollish style of U.S. currency, covered in 'financial' terms and phrases, and ultimately placed in front of an obelisk reminiscent of a miniature Washington Monument.

There seems to be a false notion and miscomprehension as to what anarchy is. It is not chaos.




Again you avoided the questions I asked. And I have the moral responsibility to let people know to beware of your organization, as a possible trap.

You may be in it for the preservation of the species, but I am in it for the preservation of the souls. But I do have one more question for you.

What role, does Yah shu ah play in your organization and what comes to your mind with regards of the King James Bible?

Yes I do understand and agree true Anarchy is not chaos
Unfortunately it is associated with chaos in the minds of the general public

There is much historical evidence that Jesus existed and also his name was changed as were his teachings by those who wished to control the masses

But getting back to the topic of the thread ... what has this got to do with Owls
