The SHIPS of MELENCOLIA-Part 4

 

THE FIFTH HIDDEN SHIP
THE FOURTH HIDDEN SHIP

Copyright Dr. Elizabeth Garner and Kathy Lawler June 11, 2014

This ship is located  180 degrees up from the nails that are located on the ground in front of the Melencolia. It is “traveling” in the same direction as the other ships we’ve found so far and is on the right side of the print hidden in Melencolia’s dress, which is indicating the past.

Once again it is a carrack such as we’ve seen before

The Portugeuse carrack of the 1500’s and 1600’s

The red arrow is pointing to the front hull with the distinctive side covering only partially displayed.

The yellow arrow is pointing to the bottom of the ship.

How many more ships will we find?

We have already seen in Part two that there is a ship hidden in the folds of the putto’s dress above.

But what comes as a surprise, but actually shouldn’t as the data is analyzed, is that THERE’S ANOTHER SHIP hidden in the folds of the putto, Margret’s dress:

2nd ship on the putto, Margret
2nd ship on the putto, Margret

The red oval is outlining the first ship, which is smaller, that was found in the putto Margret’s dress. The blue box encompasses the hull of the carrack that is found directly below the first smaller ship, with the orange arrow basically indicating the directional focus of this carrack’s hull. The green arrow is pouting to the distinctive cross hull  design of the carrack that we saw before.

The yellow box with the big yellow arrow is pointing to at least two Jewish stars, six pointed. The compass on the top of the calipers Melencolia holds indicates the direction that these two ships are heading for-again EAST, from whence the Duerer family ancestors came from.

So what is really going on here?

We need to remember that Margret was a TWIN,the second of the two girl twins born Jan 20, 1476, and that the first twin girl was named Agnes I.  According to the Nuremberg death registries, Agnes died in childhood, which is why a later girl child born was called Agnes II.

Albrecht could never leave out a reference to his other twin sister, Agnes or the fact that these two siblings were twins. So he puts the BIG ship directly below the small ship, indicating that Margret had lived into adulthood, dying during the creation of this composition but also giving reference to Agnes I.

The two Jewish stars above the bigger ship and on the side of the smaller ship, are indications that his twin sisters were crypto-Jews, as was the whole family.

Where will we find the next ship?

As previously  reported in the first article about the mysterious ships that are encoded in Melencolia which you see again here, a Portuguese or Spanish medieval carrackthere are more ships that have been found on the right side of the composition, delineated by the putto, who represents the co-artist Margret.

As the Duerer Cipher reveals, anything on the right side of a “two storied” composition indicates something from the past. Margret and Albrecht were both working on this print as a tribute to their mother, Barbara, who they knew had started to die in 1513.  Then suddenly, Margret died closely after her mother, sometime between May 16, 1514 and August 24, 1514, according to the death registries published by the Nuremberg St. Lorenze church.

As discovered by P. Weber in 1900, the ENTIRE theory that Der Reuter, the 1514 St. Jerome in the Study and Melencolia COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN PRODUCED AS PART OF A TRILOGY, the “Meisterstiches, ” as they still are called today, since the records of Anton Tucher’s cashbook, the Losunger, or President of the Nuremberg city government (the City Council) PROVE that Tucher purchased from Albrecht on October 13, 1515, three “St. Jerome’s” and FOUR Melencolia prints as presents for friends in Rome”, has been totally ignored. Otherwise, Albrecht GAVE these two paired prints, The St Jerome and Melencolia, without Der Reuter, to very highly placed courtiers to get his pension back when he went to Antwerp to regain the pension he had lost upon the death of Emperor Maximilian in 1519.

Der Reuter was made in 1513, so it never made any sense that Melencolia might have been “numbered” as  1. These three prints were never interconnected and the perpetuation of this myth for another 114 years after a “recognized, at the time, Duerer expert” blew the theory apart, but is perpetuated in ALL art history classes today, is an ridiculous, proving that academia merely repeats over and over the inaccurate research about Albrecht Duerer. But of course, it’s always about the Italian Renaissance artists, so why should they care?  THEY DON’T.   But let’s get back to the second ship in Melencolia. Here is the image of the second ship in Melencolia, and without surprise, It is encoded in the folds of the drapery of the putto, Margret, on the right side of her dress:

the ship in the folds of the putto, Margret, in Melencolia

What you see in this image are a number of symbols.  The ship itself is within the bounds of the red oval with the yellow arrow pointing to the flag flying from it’s masthead. the flag appears encoded but we haven’t figured that out yet, please feel free to try to do so. The purple arrow points to the what appears to be the masthead, and it appears to be a bird of some sort, a very large bird. The object that is circled in the blue oval with the orange arrow pointing to it is a telescope, another telescope.  Both the position of the ship and the directional clue of the telescope almost mirrors the direction that the first ship found is traveling towards, and that would be EAST, towards the past.   How many more ships will we find?

There are so many new symbols and encodings that have been found recently in Melencolia, it is difficult to decide which ones to present first, so we have chosen to start with the ships since we have already revealed the fact that this composition contains compasses indicating places to which to sail.

The first ship found is actually embedded in a triple encoded symbol, the figure with eyes and a crown and a shoulder embedded in one of the whitest of melancholia’s dress drapery, which you see here

As you can see towards the right, there is a figure staring out at all of us with two eyes, wearing a crown, whose right shoulder is drawn with a dark line that comes down to the hem of Melencolia’s dress.

What astonished us was to find that this figure was actually a triple encoded symbol and we found the first sailing ship that is embedded in this composition.  It is the largest of the sailing ships found to date.

This ship is a carrack. Carracks were ocean-going ships: large enough to be stable in heavy seas, and roomy enough to carry provisions for long voyages. They were the ships in which the Portuguese and the Spanish explored the world in the 15th and 16th centuries, the exact times that Duerer and his sister would have known these ships. In Portuguese this type was called a nau, while in Spanish it is called a carraca or nao. In French it was called a caraque or nef. Columbus sailed in a carrack.

The red oval circle outlines the hull of the ship.

A typical carrack

The blue rectangle outlines the rectangular upper part of the ship that typically surrounded the hull, pointed to by the yellow arrow

The two orange arrows are outlining the forward mast where the green arrow is pointing to the flag flying on this mast.

The yellow box outlines a large figure that is sitting in the ship.

Since we have learned from the Duerer Cipher that compositions which are basically separated in half, please see my article on the Eustachium where this is clearly indicated, in this case  the putto sitting on the millstone dissects the composition and thus  two stories are being told.  Since this ship is embedded on the right side of the composition, we know this ship is sailing towards the “past.” Based upon the compasses already found and reported, this ship is sailing towards Eastern Europe.

How many more ships will we find in Melencolia?

DANGER! DEATH AT THE MUSEUMS WEEK

durer albrecht sec art institute of chigago murder death

 

LET’S GET TO THE GRUESOME THIS WEEK-DEATHS AND MURDERS AT THE MUSEUMS!  FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE:

 

Charges are pending against a 29-year-old man who allegedly stabbed another man in the neck outside the Art Institute of Chicago on the evening of June 10.

The stabbing occurred in the Art Institute’s south garden, which houses several large sculptures including Alexander Calder’s Flying Dragon.

Both men are homeless, according to  and the 57-year-old victim remains in critical condition.

Officials at the museum were able to provide a detailed description of the assailant, who was apprehended after fleeing the scene. He currently faces charges of either aggravated battery or attempted murder.

“I’m surprised that something like this would happen outside the art museum, especially on a day like today with so many people out,” said a local resident.

The Art Institute of Chicago's south garden.

Strangely, this isn’t the first time this year that violence has broken out in close proximity to a museum.

The Art Institute of Chicago was recently named the world’s favorite museum by TripAdvisor, an accolade we hope won’t be diminished by this act of violence.

TRAVESTY! AND HOPE-THE REAL IDIOT RESIGNS-BPL NON THEFT

durer albrecht rembrandt sex renaissance boston public library art theft

 

THIS IS JUST A QUICK UPDATE, WE WILL GET BACK TO THE TRUE TRAVESTY IN THIS MESS AT THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY, THE RAILROADING OUT OF ONE OF THE FINEST FEMALE LIBRARY PRESIDENTS IN THE USA WHO WAS RAILROADED OUT BY THE POLITICAL IDIOTS,  A STORY THAT SHOULD NOT BE BE LEFT TO DIE. 

IT’S ALWAYS THE FEMALE WHO GETS THE SHAFT AND TAKES THE FALL,  NOT THE MALES, HAPPENED AT SOTHEBY’S AND CHRISTIES IN 2004,  AND GUYS WONDER WHY WOMEN ARE SICK OF WORKING TWICE AS HARD, DANCING IN HEELS BACKWARDS, AND HAVING TO DO IT 3 TIMES BETTER THAN MOST OF THE LAZY SLOUCHES AROUND. THE SEXISM IS ENOUGH, WE’RE TIRED OF RAPE, BURNINGS, WARS, DOMESTIC ABUSE, ANYONE TRYING TO CONTROL OUR BODIES. 

The chairman of the Boston Public Library Board of Trustees has announced his resignation following a controversy over valuable art that went missing but was later found misplaced at the library.

The library released a statement Thursday saying Jeffrey Rudman will resign as Board of Trustees chairman July 3, the same day library President Amy Ryan is resigning following the same controversy.

A spokeswoman for Walsh says the mayor told Rudman during a meeting Thursday morning that he wanted the library to go in a different direction, and Rudman submitted his resignation. The mayor’s office declined to comment on whether Walsh asked Rudman to resign.

A 1634 Rembrandt etching and 1504 Durer engraving disappeared last month, prompting calls for better security. They were found last week misfiled at the library.

 

FINALLY SOME JUSTICE, THE HEAD TRUSTEE GOES ALSO AND THE IDIOT POLITICIAN LIAR GETS TO RUN THE SHOW.  “THE POWER LIES IN THE DECEPTIONS, NOT THE TRUTH”

 

HOW DOES THAT SIT WITH Y’ALL?

American Tourists High Fine for Vandalizing Rome’s Colosseum

Two American women have been reprimanded for vandalizing Rome’s Colosseum. The pair aged, 21 and 25, carved their initials into the stone with a coin and took a selfie with the damaged wall. If charged, the women could face a sizable fine.

The majority of the six million people that visit the Colosseum every year are well behaved, however, and despite several signs in Italian and English informing visitors that defacing the ancient site is strictly prohibited, tourists routinely cause damage to the historic monument.

A spokesman for the Special Superintendency for the Archaeological Heritage of Rome told the Guardian that visitors view the Colosseum differently from other heritage sites. “There’s a difference in perception. Museums are treated like churches, sacred places where there are things of great value. Whereas the Colosseum is an incomplete building which has already been robbed.”

Roman centurion impersonator Antonio Camertoni lamented, “It’s a piece of cultural heritage. They don’t do it at home, but they do it here.”

Danish holidaymaker Johnny Hansen called for harsh penalties, “Everyone should have respect for it,” he said. “They should be fined to make an example. It’s heritage, so you must protect it.”

Some have argued that vast number of visitors makes it almost virtually impossible to prevent a minority of disrespectful visitors from damaging the Colosseum. Recent funding cuts have also made it harder to catch rule-breakers.

The Colosseum is currently undergoing a €25 million ($34 million) refurbishment, funded by the luxury group Tod’s
