Gods of Chicago

I was in Chicago recently and had a chance, at long last, to visit the Oriental Museum, and its world-renowned collection of art and archaeology of the ancient Near East. The museum is part of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago and displays objects recovered by the Oriental Institute excavations in Egypt, Mesopotamia and ancient Israel. Historian and archaeologist James Henry Breasted founded the museum in 1919 to house the fruits of his numerous expeditions to Egypt and the Middle East. Breasted was a contemporary of Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. He aided Carter in deciphering inscriptions and seals from the recently discovered Tomb of Tutankhamun. View the Gallery...

 

Gods of Angkor

I spent a few wonderful days in the Washington, D.C. during the Summer of 2010. I had a chance to visit the “Gods of Angkor” exhibit at the Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery and the Freer Museum and its outstanding holdings of Asian art. The “Angkor” exhibition features magnificent bronze sculptures and ritual objects created within a Khmer cultural context that spanned some 1,600 years, from late prehistory through the Angkor period (9th–15th centuries). The exhibition, which grew out of a collaboration between the Freer and Sackler galleries and the National Museum of Cambodia explores cultural and religious developments that coalesced during the Angkor period.

Denderah temple gallery

This gallery features William Henry's photos of the ceiling of the Temple of Hathor of Denderah. Hathor is the goddess of love. Until the past few years the ceiling of the temple was covered with soot, its imagery barely intelligible. Today, the amazing blue color of the ceiling is brought to life and with it the astonishing imagery. The most spectacular are the images of the gods sailing the stars on their boats of eternity.

Mall And Meru Gallery

This gallery features the the art of Digital artist Jack Andrews. He and I collaborated on the creation of digital renderings of the drawings of Mount Meru from a 2nd century Chinese manuscript and the Bicentennial Capitol Mall in Nashville, TN (which I call Stargate Park). I think Jack’s work has a slightly Asian feel that made him perfect for this job.

Transfiguration Gallery

My study of the Transfiguration story in The Light Body Effect explores the Transfiguration as an event in which Jesus secretly demonstrates the transformation into a being of light that all of us will one day effect. Many of these icons are drawn from Eastern Christianity, which upholds the Transfiguration as Jesus's Greatest Miracle. Early Christians believed that connecting with these images mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally connecting awakens the process of Transfiguration within our DNA. As the Gnostics said, 'the Image will show you the Way.'
