The FIRST MYSTERY OF REVELATION
THE FOUR HORSEMEN
A long time ago, when I was still considered a child I tried to sketch what I envisioned and dreamed regarding this painting and was unable to. Believing it just wasn’t my time, that I hadn’t yet earned the right I continued on with my life. Although I had made bets with myself to read the entire bible, I often became discouraged because I did not understand what I was reading and still do not…mostly. I would put the bible up and forget about it. I had read or heard that if you simply ask for understanding, you will receive it. I also read not to test God, but the rebel I am an have always been went ahead and tested him. I asked for understanding. Sometime later, I read Revelation like I always did, as an artist and not a religious person. I got to the Four Horsemen and found my heart pounding in realization…I had earned the right, I finally understood!
Once widely used to classify races of humans and still used in Forensics and medical sciences, I find it interesting that the four primary races match the colors of the horses in overall color, (please see blog regarding the Pale Horse separate from this entry) as well as the roles the horses represent. The terms are not used as much publicly due to the “offensive” projections people feel they create. For this piece, I will use them for scientific and artistic purposes in order to express my theory as I see it. All I can tell you is if you feel offended, close the blog.
Theoretically, the Caucasian-white, Australoid-red, Negroid-black, and the Mongoloid-pale (In art the lightest basic color in the color scale before white, classified as “pale”). One could argue the “pale” theory but I am not here to argue that, I am here to express my theory as an artist, keep an open mind, continue researching the subject and make sure I have scientific evidence and proven information. The terms are used in physical anthropology and intricate details of each skull type are used to classify the origination of various humans or the regions of the world from which they were first known to inhabit. It is interesting information and you may not be who you think you are!
In science and through excessive research, it has been found that: Caucasoid people were/are indigenous to Europe (see European countries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe), Western and South Asia, as well as a Western section of Central Asia and North Africa.
Australoid-Australoid peoples ranged throughout Australia, New Guinea, and Melanesia, as well as different parts of Oceania ,Philippines,Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, and the SouthernMiddle East.
Negroid are people from a Southern portion of North Africa and sub-Sahara Africa.
Mongoloid people are East and Southeast Asian, the Eastern portion of Southeast Asia, Polynesia, Far East Central Asia, Greenland, Far Eastern region of South Asia and the Americas! (This is very significant in the story of The Four Horsemen.)
See link for geographical reference to race originations:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craniofacial_anthropometry Please note that ALL people classified in the origin may not have an active role in the events represented by their horses’ role.
So, what does all this mean?These are the Four Horsemen of Revelation:
The White Horse-Caucasoid
The Red Horse-Australoid
The Black Horse-Negroid
The Pale Horse-Mongoloid
SECTION ONE-THE FOUR HORSEMEN-THE WHITE HORSE
According to Revelation the White Horse:
“…And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer…”
EUROPEAN MAJOR WARS/Events:French Revolution 1789, Industrial Revolution-Second half of the 18th century, Russian Revolution 1917. See: World War II Timeline…Germany, Hitler, Soviets, etc… It is astounding information! http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/timeline/ww2time.htm
And in current times the threat of The New World Order-The wealthiest most powerful bloodlines in the world. The 13 bloodlines are:
The Astor Bloodline
The Bundy Bloodline
The Collins Bloodline
The DuPont Bloodline
The Freeman Bloodline
The Kennedy Bloodline
The Li Bloodline
The Onassis Bloodline
The Reynolds Bloodline
The Rockefeller Bloodline
The Rothschild Bloodline
The Russel Bloodline
The Van Duyn Bloodline
Also as a 14th bloodline theirs a Merovingian (Merovingian – a Frankish dynasty founded by Clovis I that reigned in Gaul and Germany from about 500 to 750 bloodline) which has something to do with the European Royal Families and also 3 interconnected bloodlines,
The Disney Bloodline
The Krupp Bloodline
The McDonald Bloodline.
It appears throughout time, the Caucasian race has utilized the bow and crown given to him.Some text theorize the White Horse is the Antichrist but does not link the theory to research, although if I had to look at it in that manner, I would have to agree. If a person looked at these horses as not only races of people but the timelines and peaks of their reigns, that person could calculate events before they happen. The times overlap yet there are definite peaks, as you will see in The Black Horse theory. Biblical years v.s current years: http://www.direct.ca/trinity/360day.html
SECTION TWO-THE FOUR HORSEMEN-THE RED HORSE
The Red Horse-Australoid:
”…And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword…”
The focus on The Red Horses Australoid origin would obviously focus on the Middle East in current times all the way back to biblical times. Peace has definitely been taken from the earth for a long, long time due to the discord. The Middle East fight among themselves and indeed kill each other.
My confusion came when I thought about the American Indians and their skin colors so similar to Middle Eastern. I thought they did fight amongst themselves and kill each other too, along with others but if they were here before “white men”, they did not fit into the Australoid origin theory. My entire theory was shot…But then I started thinking, well then, where did they originate from?
SHOCKINGLY, this is what I surely did not expect to find: Skulls of people with Australoid morphologies have been found in the Americas, leading to speculation that people with phenotypical similarities to modern Australoids may have been the earliest occupants of the continent. http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Australoid
SECTION THREE-THE FOUR HORSEMEN-THE BLACK HORSE
“…and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of balances (scales) in his hand…”
I went over some of this material in my post regarding the Black Horse previously. I stated as the artist, and as a human being that I felt no man in history had given so much toward equality in the world as Martin Luther King, even losing his life for it. It was his actions which gave birth to all of the equal rights movements for so many things in current history.
For me, the balances (scales) are equality and therefore justice by weight of evidence measured. I also noted that the rider of the Black Horse will be Martin Luther King. The equality explosion occurred in effort to obtain equal rights for African Americans, and all people in general. So it would center around the Negroid race. (Please keep in mind equality was tied to women’s rights, disability rights, gay rights, etc…)
SECTION FOUR-THE FOUR HORSEMEN-THE PALE HORSE
THE MONGOLOID PEOPLE-THE PALE HORSE
“…And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death. Hades followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him…”
Mongoloid people are East and Southeast Asian, the Eastern portion of Southeast Asia, Polynesia, Far East Central Asia, Greenland, Far Eastern region of South Asia and surprisingly enough, the Americas!
Shocking to realize WE (Pale Americans) are the Pale Horse!
Is it coincidental that we are currently on the brink of World War III? Is it too far fetched to think that America does not have a major role in the unsettled politics of our current times and the overall turmoil of the world? Are we the rider named Death?
THE REVELATION PAINTING
La Pittura di Rivelazione
Overview: 12 feet tall x 40 feet long utilizing thirty 48″ X 48″ canvases. Twenty canvases are gallery wrapped, highest quality to withstand the test of time, six are custom birch wood, with holes drilled of various sizes and fully functioning doors on the backs. Four canvases are custom birch wood in order to carry the weight of over $140,000.00 of crushed precious and semi precious gemstones. The pearl gates are made from crushed Akoya, Japanese saltwater pearls! The painting incorporates thousands and thousands of dollars worth of highest quality Golden and Liquitex acrylic paints, 24K gold flake and leaf, and complete fiber optics set ups which illuminate God in a way never seen before in fine art. Customized sections of the painting give it the ability to move and bleed (Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs!), then returning to its natural state.
The painting initially appears as a religious painting alone, the final book of the bible, Revelation with seven magnificent scenes and sub-scenes labeled in various languages, yet underlying there is another painting of politics and corruption. Within the painting is the ancient and ongoing battle of good v.s evil, mysteries and messages embedded within the artwork which are not readily visible. The making of this painting has spanned nearly 16 years and is estimated to be released 2014-2015. Upon the painting’s release, a stunning revelation will be revealed which ties this painting to current world events which was not discovered until 09/2009. Two other unknown mysteries of Revelation were also uncovered while creating this painting and have been missed throughout history! Please see the blogs for more detailed information about the making of this historical work of art created by one artist, and the photos as they are updated.
Upon the release of The Revelation Painting seven journals will also be released within 2015-2016 which give an unusual first hand look inside the mind of an artist while visualizing and detailing each scene revealing the trials and tribulations of aspects required to make the painting. The Journal of Measures (and Numbers) details not only the transition of moving an idea to giant size, it also covers odd events regarding numbers associated with the painting. The Journal of Sketches reveals artwork from the conceptual stages and beyond. The stones used in the painting are discussed in a journal named: The Stones, and Truth-The Hemorrhage of Pigs! talks about the section of the painting which bleeds.
Within The Journal of Acknowledgement participants are given an opportunity to express information to the world! World-wide exposure to the arts in many regions dealing personally to obtain supplies for this historical painting. My endeavor is to help bring knowledge around the globe of not only the beauty of arts all over the world but to help people understand that profound inspiration exist in a world not so far from their own! My first stop…Africa! With global participation in The Revelation Painting for the past twelve years there has been silent participation from all over the globe to complete this work of fine art; what I consider to be a “global effort”. The ultimate endeavor is to bring a sense of unity through visual peace by bringing to light the beauty of natural resources, therefore the people of that region or area. Mysteries of Revelation which have pulled at the threads of many genius human beings are revealed within the painting as well.
Seven journals will accompany this massive work of art. Nothing like this has ever been done in art or the history of mankind! My Creative Influences & Favorite Artists, The Philosophy of the Revelation Painting: Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language distinguished from other ways of addressing fundamental questions (such as mysticism, myth, or the arts) by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word “Philosophy” comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία [philosophia], which literally means “love of wisdom”.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhilosophyAs noted in the definition of philosophy: A simple and profound question to ask yourself is simply, why am I here? The Revelation Painting helps to bring to light an answer to that question by subjecting the viewer to a combination of factors that overlap in the world we live in. In order to see why we are here, we have to see the world around us. There is a significant difference in “seeing” and understanding, it is a global effect. We can look at every single detail but miss the entire forest because of the trees. To understand, for example how the forest survives, you must understand the delicate balance of life but you cannot think that you understand if you do not see the “big” picture, otherwise it is no less than walking around blind with 20/20 vision!
How the problems in the philosophy are addressed throughout The Revelation Painting is approached through certainly what would be termed an unconventional route. Artist throughout history have used their talent to help their audience see life through a perspective very different from what they are accustom. People are attracted to the different view of the world gazing through the artist’s eyes mainly because it is an escape from the world they are used to or literally trapped within. The world of imagination can take anyone as far as they would like to go whether it is by their own hand, or that of an artist. Often times an artist’ endeavor is to connect with the viewer.
Difficulty arises through expression whether it be an idea, placing a shadow correctly within a work of art, or most often bringing an idea to reality. Historically the renowned artists are those who were able to achieve a connection with people through their art and master the difficulties associated, hence the “Masters”. The Revelation Painting’s effort to master difficulties of projecting ideas to vision and within the painting is a core network projecting the delicate balance of life in an unconventional manner. The blogs, journals and information associated with the painting was designed to help the viewer understand the complexity of the unseen network within the forest of this massive painting.
The snow is falling today. When I got off work this morning there were frosted snowflakes on the windows of my car. While I waited for the car to warm up, I took pictures of them with my cell phone. The colors where sparkling blues, greens, yellows, oranges, just about every color of the rainbow. Although I was freezing and tired, it wasn’t too much to sit for 10 minutes trying to capture the sparkle and magic of it all. I think that is otherwise known as “smelling the roses”.
I studied the amazing natural designs and stunning details. The colors were what I imagined God to be in The Revelation Painting. The closest thing I know to that effect is hologram glitter. It has every color of the rainbow within it. Diamonds of course have that effect to but are not only out of my reach, I do not think I would give diamond thieves the satisfaction even if I had the money for them. Search blood diamonds and see the stories.
I will be moving the 4 canvases down today and replacing them with 4 wooden canvases and start working on God. I imagine this morning inspired me to start working on it. I was going to work in the other direction since some of the work on those canvases was done long ago. Maybe it is a better approach to work from start to finish in the direction of the painting, as I have already seen that the black horse is bigger than my original sketch and measurements in The Journal of Measures.
The need to sleep is overwhelming almost every time I try to paint. I have set goals and am forcing myself to paint even if I do not think I can. In effort to get relief, I built a page into the website called GIVE/TAKE where not only did I list the things needed to complete the painting, but I listed avenues for corporate sponsorship. Hopefully someone will take an interest in the painting and support me enough to allow for restful painting instead of fatigued painting. I am prepared either way.
As an artist and a human being, the last thing I wanted to do was start another blog. The Revelation Painting is a full-time job in itself, not to mention the seven accompanying journals and the current blogs on wordpress, myspace, facebook, and the social networking sites. It was during my constant updating of these sites I realized there was no real place to put my personal perspectives about the painting, my feelings, controversies, or any other way to express myself and the measures taken to independently market the painting.
This blog is designed mainly to organize a portion of the journal-The Journal of Dreams which is not only the story of the origination of the painting, feelings and actual dreams, but the entire last year coined The Finale’, of The Revelation Painting. Please feel free to see the blogroll to the right to see other blogs, photos and sites of the painting including www.therevelationpaintingjournals.wordpress.com where other parts of the remaining journals are showcased. It has been a long and worthwhile journey where I learned more than I could have ever imagined.
Currently I am unsure if any pictures will be posted here since there are many other blogs for photos of work in progress and finished works. I prefer to use this site for writing in a daily, diary-like fashion and will hopefully use entries in The Journal of Dreams which is one of seven journals to accompany the painting which most notably catalogs the last year of the making of The Revelation Painting. It is rare that an artist life during a painting of this magnitude is cataloged, and even rarer that the audience gets a first hand look. Welcome to The Journal of Dreams…
