Arachne







"In the city of New York on the twenty-first day of the month of October, 1938, at six o'clock in the morning, Mrs. Dorothy Hale committed suicide by throwing herself out of a very high window of the Hampshire House building. In her memory this retablo, executed by Frida Kahlo."


"On September 17, 1925, Kahlo was riding in a bus that collided with a trolley car. She suffered serious injuries . . ."











"A prism can be used to break light up into its constituent spectral colors (the colors of the rainbow)."










As the world is an image of the living Aeon, so is man an image of the First Man. Valentinus, according to Clemens Alexandrinus, spoke of the Sophia as an artist making this visible lower world a picture of the glorious Archetype, but the hearer or reader would as readily understand the heavenly Wisdom of the Book of Proverbs to be meant by this Sophia as the 12th and fallen Aeon. ("Valentinus")

Ariadne's thread












A Pyramid Unfinished













Her father put her in charge of the labyrinth where sacrifices were made as part of reparations (either to Poseidon or to Athena, depending on the version of the myth); however, she would later help Theseus in overcoming the Minotaur and saving the would-be sacrificial victims. . . . Some scholars think, due to her thread-spinning and winding associations, that she was a weaving goddess such as Arachne, and they support the assertion with the mytheme of the Hanged Nymph (see weaving in mythology). ("Ariadne")

  5. Thanks for the suggestions, Anon--Looper definitely slots into Willis' career as being trapped on the 12-Monkey-Wheel and witnessing his own death . . . (Horus slays Osiris? Maybe.)

  7. Frida:
    (Etymology)
    In Scandinavia, Frida mainly derives from the Old Norse name Fríða, short for female names ending in fríðr "beautiful, beloved".
    In Central and Eastern Europe, Frida is a short form of compound names containing the Germanic element fried "peace"; cognate to English Freda.
