“The beast runs amok in my kingdom. He has isolated me, and now he is sharpening his talons for one more fateful push. But salvation lies in the jungles of New Spain. Will you deliver Spain from bondage?”

The epicness is on. The Fountain AU. 

An abandoned concept of Queen!Rey and Conquistator!Rey set in Inquisition Spain.  

Descendants of Eve

Vasily Kafanov - The Machines of God, 2000.

In the center of the sacrificial offering plate, both cup and womb, lie sleeping the Genesis lovers, the innocence of humanity; father and mother alike, Adam and Eve united as one. Dichotomy courses throughout uniting man and woman, hand above and below, with Sun and Moon presiding over the alchemical union. Thematically representative of Glass & June, insofar that “their fates had intertwined long before they were lovers, their moment extending back before their eyes first met, and that bond was eternal”.

Hands are positioned above and below the offering plate, mirroring the alchemical truth: “As Above, So Below”, recalling Christ as the Baphomet, one hand signifying those who Ascend, and the other, those who are Damned. Man is born betwixt both, and pulled equally by both forces. In the upper left hand corner lays a diagram of a Triangle - representing the Trinity - encircled by two spiral entities; two manifestations of will, describing two separate aspects of the Creator.

In the center of the Triangle lies the Tetragrammaton ; a Greek word meaning “the four lettered name of God”, or IHVH as it is transliterated into Latin and pronounced “Yod He Vav He” (as the Hebrew language contains no vowels in its written form, only consonants). In 1611, when English translators of the Bible made the original Hebrew readable in their own language, it was from a variant pronunciation of IHVH from which they derived the name ‘Jehovah’.
