Wow – 2014 already! The year sure sent fast. InterpNEWS has continued to grow

and become the most widely read of any other interpretive publication – and it is sent

free. As of December 2013 InterpNEWS is read by over 8000 individuals, agencies

and organizations in 25 countries. Its growth is due to you – the readers and

especially the authors who have contributed such great articles. Putting together an

article takes time, but the rewards are many. Knowing that so many others may

benefit from your ideas and experiences must be a “warm feeling” for so many of

you.

Let’s plan for an even better 2014 with new and more articles to share. Here are some of the topics I would

like to see as I really haven’t seen them written about.

* Historical and costumed interpretation. *Interpretation of churches and cemeteries.

* New interpretive technologies. * Innovative exhibitions.

* Developing and managing volunteer programs. * Interpretation for Children.

* Interpretive research findings. * WWI and WWII interpretation.

* Interpreting archaeological sites. * Community interpretation.

* Any cool topic I hadn’t thought about 

Let me hear from you about your

DISCOVERING THE DÜRER CIPHER:

HIDDEN SECRETS IN PLAIN SIGHT

Dr. Elizabeth Garner

Independent Art Historian,

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) is Germany’s most famous artist and one of Europe’s most important

Renaissance stars, whose contemporary fame surpassed Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Dürer ’s popularity has

been attributed to his complex, dramatic imagery, his scientific accuracy in representation, and his mastery in

all media (paintings, engravings, etchings, and woodcuts). But the truth is that Dürer was manipulating every

buyer’s mind with hidden messages and subliminal marketing techniques that were hidden in plain sight.

As I began collecting Dürer prints, I was puzzled by the

astonishingly unusual iconography of many of Dürer ’s

compositions, the on-going confusion among Dürer historians

regarding the interpretations of his imagery, and the persistent use

of Italian Renaissance and Christian symbolism by historians that

failed for hundreds of years to adequately explain Dürer ’s

messages. When I purchased an impressive 1498 Promenade print

from Andrew and Sonja Weiner, of Spaightwood Gallery in

Upton, MA, in 2007, I discovered the first known embedded coded

message in the neckline of the woman’s dress. At that point, the

paradigm shifted regarding everything about Albrecht Dürer .

My unique research of the last six years into the life and art of

Albrecht Dürer has resulted in discovering embedded codes hidden

in plain sight, in at least 1/3 to 1/2 of his entire oeurve, including

the paintings and drawings., inexplicably missed by others in the

past 500 years.

Why was Dürer hiding messages in the art? What did these

messages mean? Who was intended to receive these messages and

who was not? Was there a pattern among these messages? A new

hypothesis about Dürer ’s art was needed to comprehensively

explain these spectacular new findings.

THE PROMENADE

 

When I purchased an impressive 1498 Promenade print from Andrew and Sonja Weiner, of Spaightwood Gallery in

Upton, MA, in 2007, I discovered the first known embedded coded message in the neckline of the woman’s dress. At that point, the

paradigm shifted regarding everything about Albrecht Dürer . My unique research of the last six years into the life and art of

Albrecht Dürer has resulted in discovering embedded codes hidden in plain sight, in at least 1/3 to 1/2 of his entire oeurve, including

the paintings and drawings., inexplicably missed by others in the past 500 years.

 

Why was Dürer hiding messages in the art? What did these messages mean? Who was intended to receive these messages and

who was not? Was there a pattern among these messages? A new hypothesis about Dürer ’s art was needed to comprehensively

explain these spectacular new findings.

 

SYMBOLS

After rejecting the Italian Renaissance and Christian iconographical systems that had consistently failed to thoroughly

explain the imagery, and abandoning negligently perpetuated scholastic errors of the last three centuries, I had to look at

Dürer ’s oeuvre with fresh eyes and no preconceived expectations. I searched for alternative symbol systems, which

revealed Dürer had created his own unique coding system, known as a cipher. Prints were inspected with high resolution

scanning, surprisingly revealing micro-engraved sexual symbols and illuminating more embedded codes. When Dürer ’s

most famous print, Melencolia I, was found to have a micro-engraved encoded belt, it became apparent that the symbols

in the cartouche held by the bat was not a title but an ingeniously encoded inscription. Melencolia I is not allegorical.

SECRETS REVEALED

 

THE PROMENADE NECKLINE CODE: “O N rosette 9then the diadem) then on the right R I C A 9”

What you see above embedded in the neckline of the woman in the print known as the Promenade is the following code: ” O

N rosette (the dissected circle before thediadem) and then on the right “O R I C A 9” This hidden coding revealed that the Dürer Cipher was real and the message it gives is scathing.

As a consequence of this analysis, I also found an interrelationship among compositions that had never been

previously identified. I realized Dürer had pulled off the greatest art hoax in history and basically made a Diary for eternity of the conspiracies and evil occurring in the Holy Roman Empire. Consider Dürer the first James Bond, because he was double crossing and triple crossing everyone to achieve his goals, dying among the 100 most wealthiest men in Nuremberg.

Three exhibitions of these discoveries have been held at famous Universities in the United States, the last exhibition taking place in March 2013.

In the next installment, we will explore one very unusual Dürer print, erroneously titled The Temptation of the Idler, whose secrets are only revealed by using the Dürer Cipher.
