Ben Frost made this picture and it was after 9/11.

Say OP, don't you think it's time to add this info to the OP?


AGREED!

that totally takes the mystery out of this picture, that makes it a regular old satirical piece of pop art..
nothing mysterious or forshadowous lol about it

looks as if the op is just fishing for starz and flags :tsk: :tsk:

thanks for the clarification

looks to me like a reference to the twin towers and 9/11. With one kid having the plane and one building the towers maybe it is insinuating that some "people in power" were working togather on the deal? idk jus my 2 cents.

You're welcome.

I don't blame the OP though, this was so popular and grew so fast that anybody trying to post or repost the information about the author and the publication date got swamped again quickly by additional posts which only read the OP and not the rest of the thread. And as the thread grows, it becomes less and less likely that people would feel inclined to read it in its entirety.

Why this garbage topic on 9/11 gets 20 instantly pages responses, while real stuff receive little attention?

Because it's exactly the other way around. I like this topic because it's something real for a change.

Good call. I would, but for some reason the 'edit' option is missing from my posts


I'll try again later.

The paper cutouts are the four horsemen!

Good call! And actually, that has got me thinking about the 4 hijackers themselves and whether the NWO intended them to symbolise a Biblical concept like the Four Horsemen.

Ok, the picture date from 2001, post september.
Who on this board had a clue in 2001. Be honest.

I remember watching the live news footage here in the UK and having a distinct feeling that there was something suspicious about the whole thing. The fact that the media seemed to know everything about the supposed terrorists and their motivations within minutes. I was also aware that the US definitely had the capability to intercept rogue aeroplanes to prevent such a disaster and was suspicious that this hadn't happened.

But obviously the full ramifications didn't become clear to me until several months afterwards. Ben Frost definitely picked up on the truth behind the conspiracy quicker than most.

I'm surprised no one mentioned this yet, but if you unscramble just the left side blocks, it spells A-N-A-G-R-A-M, which is the game of unscrambling jumbled letters to create words. The hidden message (if you can call it that, since it's fairly blatant) is a bit unsettling. Not to mention that it was found on an exam paper no less. Regardless, I'm glad I saw it!

I could swear I've seen this before quite a while back in a totally unrelated source. This picture wasn't originally sourced on any test.

UK schools do sociology at GCSE level now? I didn't know that, maybe the school I went to was just crap...

Interesting picture anyway, I do find it very strange that this was put on an exam paper.

As for the questions being asked, I would think there are a million other images that could be used to pose those questions under. If I saw that for the first time in an exam paper I would freak out and most likely fail the exam. Very strange...

The girl is building with the building blocks the word Armagedon and they all in some way relate to that.
Really weird illustration.Was it reflected to show the future or the past?

i agree somewhat with other members observations...


but nobody cited the Adage: 'Red on Yellow Kills a Fellow'... with the Pentagons on the soccer ball

as for the word Armageddon, mixed in the lettered blocks... the 'G' partially hidden by the young girls hand actually obscures whether the letter is a 'G' or a 'D'... our minds tend to 'see' a 'G' block to complete our notion the word is Armageddon


now the boy with the hyper extended arms...the head position looking forward and the right leg extended..
All tend to present the observer a somewhat modified 'Swastika image'


the boeing 767 is accurate (held in left hand)

but the wall paper trimming knife is not the utilitarian 'Box Cutter' of 911 infamy,
the plastic utility cutter shown is too flimsy and the blades are designed to snap off
unlike the solid, sturdy single edge razor blade of a deadly Box-Cutter


the girls outfit is red-blue just as the political sides are depicted Red or Blue... a little Freudian interpretation could lead to further symbolism of the boy & girl


there is likely more in the hair doo, color & highlighting...
but i did not notice any 'freckles' like the old-timey illustrations of the Dick-Jane-& Spot first readers books
i guess because 'freckles' implies caucasian in this multi-culture era


 


the boys shoes & laces... look like caricatures of a person(s), two people facing opposite directions...
are these to represent Bush-Cheney ?


this could go on-&-on
edit on 15-2-2012 by St Udio because: (no reason given)



It's clearly a G, not a mind's eye thing at all, zoom it in, and you will see there is pixels in the spot that make the "G" angle. No other letter has this feature, therefor it can only be a G.

Hi ATS, long time reader first time poster...

I won't go into the subliminal messages/ metaphors, Everything I picked has been posted.
I think we have the who and when nailed so I'll just address the why.
Why Did the artist draw it?
The same reason any good artist does what he does, to provoke thought and emotion, something this piece obviously does. Theirs probably multiple meaning here, a common trick used by artists. The viewer takes from it what he will (DiVinci springs to mind). For example the boys body language, is it a reverse nazi salute, is it a homosexual guesture or a representation of that goat headed dude (forget its name)? The artist surly meant for one of these interpretations but if he is really good he may have intended all of these interpritations.

Why was it used in an exam?
Personally when I read the question associated with the image (after scrutinizing the image and reading posts) I found it hard to answer the blatantly easy questions. I kept being drawn back to the other subliminals in their. Maybe this is why they used it. To throw the students, making them see past the obvious. Anyone else feel it was harder than it should be to answer the questions?

I see a plane, 2 towers, a box cutter and I'm pretty sure the paper men and ball have something to do with it also. There's probably something up with the letters as well.

The image looks pretty old to me, older than 2001.

It's pretty weird to have a box cutter around children though, even in an image.
You sure it's a legit exam illustration and not just fear mongering?

It says ARMAGEDON, if you read it.

The only thing I could really think of (with 9/11 already in my mind due to the location where this thread is) ... the paper people could be victims of 9/11

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

If the first thing that you saw in that photo was a reminder of 911, then you are spending too much time obsessing over that topic.

I had to look at it for a bit to get the point since I didn’t look at the forum before clicking the link. The only thing that even remotely gave it away for me was the knife. If there had not been the quite out of place knife in the image, I would still be looking at it to get the point. I almost have to wonder it the knife was added later by a CT’er to relate this to a conspiracy.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
