These awe-inspiring pastels are created by a woman from New Mexico named D'vorah Curtis. She at one time served as the art director for Falcon Press, which I’m sure some of you are familiar with. In Fact, Discordians and other fans of Robert Anton Wilson might recognize a portion of her “Ark Of The Covenant” which was used at the beginning of his video lecture “The Eye In The Triangle” which was recorded in 1989 at Avalon bookshop (just a coincidence, nothing to worry about) in Santa Cruz, CA.

King Solomon’s Temple, also called the First Temple, was plundered and torched by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II in the sixth century B.C., according to the Hebrew Bible.
