This is a very special work of art. Like its preceding counterpart “Unlocking Knowlege”, It was created on a page of the book titled “A Library of Freemasonry Illustrated”. The book was in such poor condition but held such valuable information in it that I thought I could do something different to preserve it. I began a project in which I would read a page and begin sketching the ideas that were inspired by what I read. This page, in particular, spoke of the antiquities of Freemasonry and the efforts to unlock the wisdom contained therein. The array of symbols I chose for this piece have great personal significance for me and I hope they speak to you.
Here are some of the symbols you will find in this work of art:
They act as a reminder of the fragility and finality of the physical experience. It is also the repository upon which we safeguard the lessons we learn through life. It is that personal chamber into which we dive when being introspective.
It is a symbolic reminder of the dissipating sands of time. It alludes to the sobering lesson that our terrestrial life is finite and that time stops for nobody. Time being a finite resource it should be used wisely.
Through it, we are reminded to live a virtuous life. One that is characterized by good decisions in the presence of temptation.
Help us keep our passions and emotions under control. Allows us to live a centered life where we try to keep superfluities at bay.
