The pic of 13 miners and one more left sleeping underground is interesting, as for all the symbolism I think it says alot about the people who are running this 'show'. I'm sure theyll tell us its just generic surealism.
nice pics.

Guys, this is just Art.
Artists most of the time don't work on a concept. The work develops during the process. The symbols used in these murals are common to people (crosses,checkers,pyramids,old-young,tormented-liberated,..). An artist in freemode just goes by with associations to other things. Many of you would draw works like these if you'd try to doodle on a 2x1 metre canvas.

The people look happy in the last one. Healthy, happy, and alive. Perhaps it is not as bad as you think.

Also EQ is earthquake.

The murals are certainly strange and caused quite the buzz when the building opened. I've seen them first hand when I lived in Charlotte and I find them rather disturbing. Ben Long is definitely an artist with a vision. He is well known for his fresco work in commercial buildings and in churches.

These murals have been in the building since its opening in 1992. I guess people are starting to see some reality in the paintings thanks to a poster on the Infowars website several days ago.

Well, true to a point. Depends on the artists. The artists I know were all very much into the underlying concept moreso than the aesthetics. Although admittedly these artists are all doing postgrad research so I guess it's a bit different than someone who sits in the forest and paints trees because they're pretty. Plus, this work was commissioned, a different can of worms. The client is paying for your style. Unless you're someone like Jeff Koons, in which case, you get what you get and you're damned happy with it. He tells you what he wants. Artist researches, does some preliminary sketches and presents them to the client. If it's approved then he is let loose on the space.These murals have so much symbolism that they couldn't possibly NOT have some kind of point to them.

Edit: Just checked out Ben's website. He's an old-school painter who is obviously making a living out of painting traditional subjects such as portraits and landscapes. Clearly not a conceptual artist. Haha. But that lends more credence to these murals having some sort of meaning; Yes, the murals are clearly done in his painting style, but the subject matter is very different from his other paintings.

I think there is a christian reference in all the murials, ending in the mysterious letters EQ.

In the first murial we have the woman I believe in reference to the Christian church, and their change of heart to allow woman into the priesthood, and the belief from what I have heared that a woman is central to the church, but for all this itme, have been excluded. She is asking the child for something I think, but the men are either saying no or they dont think she understands something.

Then there is capitalism on the left with reference to the industrial looking building, and red on the right for communism. The fire is burning towrads the west and towards capitalism, but the woman is swaying to the right in the form of communism, which is referenced by the red block, and the child is split in two, as reference to the people of the world I think.

We then have christ in the second mural, and the dancing angels above and then in the third mural we have EQ which could be this:




EQ is emotional intelligence - the capacity to be wise and masterful - both emotionally and relationally.

Just for you info, the designer was the same IM Pei who designed the Denver International Airport and the new entrance to The Louvre in Paris. The strange murals all came from his head and vision and personally commisioned all the art in both Denver and this bank.

I am almost finished research on a major thread I will be posting about this designer and his contacts within the elite.


Watch this space.

This BofA thread is an eye opener to what this Pei guy has in mind for the masses. The DIA "art" shocked me into doing some internet research that spelled out... something evil.

something else I wanted to add. Murals last a long time -hundreds of years. Knowing this you can't just depict anything. You go with some sort of symbolism that human psyche will always connect to.
Like Davinci did etc.

Im not an artist-painter so its just a logical conclusion. It could be a masonic scheme, but i doubt it.

Take a look at the group on the left, how they are all white and the one guy is kind of watching his back. The other group is an ethnic mix. Is the asian guy going to put a wrench in their plans? There is a clear divide between these two groups. They're mad about the economy, their jobs, rather the lack thereof. They have their shovels straight up, on guard, are they striking? They are ready to strike each other. The axe being in the white groups side indicates that it will be them who will strike first.

"Wherefore, as we have said before, the Universe is balanced by two forces, which maintain it in equilibrium; and the force which attracts, and that which repels. This is the equilibrium of the mountain of gold, which the Gods on one side, and the Demons on the other, hold tied by the symbolic Serpent of India; and its scientific reality is demonstrated by the phenomena of Polarity, and by the universal law of Sympathies and Antipathies...."

Who approves the installation of these in Denver and here? Why such subject matter? Do they not care what we see? Its all so obvious...and frightening. It so subliminal...but without the "sub". Its right in our faces. Conditioning.
Whatever happened to birds and flowers and trees???

Ye i like that, your def onto something there.

The guys on the left are white and are pulling their weight, and by the seems doing all the work, or perhaps all for capitalism.

The guys on the right are not as interested and dont seem to want to work, (dont want capitalism).

The guy on the right giving the spanner, is the first tentative step into joining capitalism, which will hopefully mean the world joins up, and are all helping each other, and pulling their weight in the best interests of everybody.

I don't think anyone has mentioned that in the first picture of the ayran lad and pyramid there is a 'black sun' burning in the sky. Or possibly just an eclipse.

Environmental Quality perhaps?

I thought the "Black sun" was interesting too - the order of the Black Sun being a Nazi cult.
