"Poussin Teniers...."

The Shepherds. What is the mystery that Poussin and Teniers hold? Think of one obvious word to describe each painting. Some researchers say that "No Temptation" refers to the Teniers St. Anthony that is NOT a "Temptation of St. Anthony". Whatever St. Anthony one sees, the word that comes to mind is "CAVE". This is the "Shepherds of Arcadia II" by Poussin, the word is the subject of the painting and that word is "TOMB". Together the Teniers and the Poussin could point to a "CAVE - TOMB".

"Shepherdess No Temptation...."

This is the "Shepherdess" of the RLC parchments, she identifies which Poussin painting the quotation refers to. The Shepherdess. Nicolas Poussin`s "Shepherds of Arcadia II". Teniers "St. Anthony and St. Paul". The painting (David Teniers?) depicts Saint Anthony of Egypt and Saint Paul the Hermit deep in conversation about monastic observance. BERGERE PAS DE TENTATION QUE POUSSIN TENIERS GARDENT LA CLEF PAX DCLXXXI PAR LA CROIX ET CE CHEVAL DE DIEU J’ACHEVE CE DAEMON DE GARDIEN A MIDI POMMES BLEUES SHEPHERDESS NO TEMPTATION THAT POUSSIN TENIERS HOLD THE KEY PEACE 681 BY THE CROSS AND THIS HORSE OF GOD I COMPLETE [or I DESTROY] THIS DAEMON GUARDIAN AT MIDDAY BLUE APPLES

Poussin and M.C. Escher

Nicolas Poussin's "Sacrament of Eucharist", Christ is blessing the chalice which is actually behind him on the table. This adds a multi-dimensional aspect to this piece. M.C. Escher multi-dimensional print.

Navigation - the Templar Compass Rose

(Click to enlarge). Crop formation from 2013 Italy, the theme this year seems to center on the compass. This one is from Italy, adopted home of Poussin. This crop circle holds to the compass theme and has the texture of rope. What is more marine than rope? Do the 3 dots at the bottom of this crop circle symbolize the magnetism in the North? The Grand Hexagonal Alignment during which this blog was begun. The 2013 Italian compass crop formation, do the chips in the upper NW section represent magnetic material to the North?
