It appears to be a arbor press of some sorts, but it looks ancient too.
Very odd photo indeed.

Rough translation:

Reproduction of a Masonic lodge in the Documentation Center of Historical Memory in Salamanca. A bizarrada that I love visiting.

Source (Thanks HBM333!)


The Historical Memory Docmentary Centre (SPAIN) . The Historical Memory Documentary Centre in the city of Salamanca safeguards a valuable collection that can be used by the citizens, directly, by consulting the original documents in the Centre building, or indirectly, by requesting the required information through the Centre's information service. The Centre is also entrusted with copying, conservation, description and promotion tasks, in order to guarantee the permanency of a part of the nation's documentary heritage and offer the citizens the enjoyment of assets that guarantee their rights and the knowledge of the most recent historical past.

I think the red box on the pillar is an old projector. Maybe it projects a light show onto this obvious display? You can easily tell that the men are not real by the shoulders and the head shape. But it seems like they may use this for ceremony purposes.


I agree it looks like a display, mainly due to the shoulders proportion/shape in the middle figure along with the very fake looking eyes that look like they are on the outside of the hoods and the figure on the right of the pic looks like it has crumpled over a little to the side too.

Also, did anyone notice the compas/square symbol on the lage blackboard on the wall on the left side is upside down? Was this a mistake? Also it is way over the top with the same symbol all over the place and cluttered with no room to move.

Maybe a display in a tourist/historical dungeon or even a night club for all we know, but don't think it is a real masonic lodge.


ha!, by the time I typed out this post and posted it, Druid 42 had just posted a pic explaining it all and showing it is indeed a tourist/historical display.

[sarcasm on]

Who the heck took a picture of my restroom and posted on the web?

Is there no privacy or decency online anymore?


[sarasm off]

You will note that the wall hanging behind the hooded figure has a word that is "La," the Spanish word for "The." Also, the start of the next (hidden) word is a typical Spanish word beginning. It could be from Spain, Mexico or a bunch of other countries. I have witnessed in Zacatecas, Mexico, a Catholic church ceremonial parade that was literally frightening with the black-robed participants and general proceedings.

That doesn't answer all of the question of what that display represents. "Display" of what? Is it about some past event or organizaton or is it current?

Whatever it is, I truly believe it would be of better use to humanity if it was reduced to a pile of charred remains, then razed with a Caterpillar toward a natural sinkhole, where it belongs.

all you have to do is ask.
that's all, just ask.


Its not worth asking. There is nothing special about free-masons. I don't need to join a secrete society to learn about life and help my fellow man. In all honesty I think its an absolute joke. I don't know why they deny blood oaths and such either, even if it is only symbolic.

I know this isn't a very great contribution to the thread, but:

The mask reminds me of the KKK masks, only black and a bit more animated.

And thanks to free will, you don't have to.

Wouldn't a blood oath have ........blood involved?


Too many regulations with Blood Borne Pathogens these days. We will leave the blood to the MMA.

The orgies, man, they don't want us in their orgies.


Bingo.


And yes, this indeed looks like a real Masonic lodge. Latin America, and south America have a strong Masonic community... There's minor differences in some of the lodge regalia, but overall, it's all pretty normal.

Haha head down Bullard into Clovis. You'll find the Clovis lodge.

Head down Clinton toward first street and you'll find my mother lodge, las palmas ponderosa.

Unfortunately you won't find any illuminati anythings..... Just us masons.

Oh yeah, the Scottish Rite temple is off stanislaus st, down town.

that looks to me like some kind of museum exhibit - perhaps a masonic museum (?). some creepy symbolic overkill in one space for sure.
