IN THE PORTAL OF 2012



This serie of Patries van Elsen is inspired by the Mayan prophecies and their stellar calendar
which mysteriously ends on December 21st. 2012.

 

 

THE LIGHT OF THE NEW TIME


Inspired by ancient prophecies of the Native Americans, Patries surprises us again with a series of paintings that reflect the cosmology of the indigenous Hopi, Nahuatl, Maya, Inca, and Aymara peoples.

Out of color and light appears the union of the condor from the South and the eagle from the North: sacred birds whose meeting announces a new heaven and new earth. And out of the deepest roots of the desert rises the symbol of the times, like a clock marking the coming era. With her characteristically bold use of colors Patries gives birth to red and yellow floating in deep blue infinity. We can also recognize the purity in the white of the great birds returning after a long journey to their mother-nest.
Patries undoubtedly creates what she believes. Through her work she invites us to share in the profound message of today that speaks of the time remaining until December 21st, 2012: the date of the end of the Mayan calendar and the beginning of a new era in which it is paradoxically up to us to create the conditions for a future which holds promise for all mankind living in this sacred place called Earth.

The prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor is based on a native American prophecy from over 500 years ago that says:
"when the condor of the south flies together with the eagle of the north a new time and a New Sun will be born."
This time has come now, because the eagle and the condor are flying together:
today for example, the eagle can be found in northern Peru, land of the condors and in the Grand Canyon in Arizona also flies the condor together with the eagle.

Many cultures, from Tibetans to the Hopi, they know a prophecy that essentially says the same; we're near the end of one era and the beginning of another.
The voice of the elders is proclaiming the beginning of the fifth sun, the end of the Mayan calendar which is followed by a new cycle, a new time.

These prophecies also describe the time we live in today, as a period of great change,
in every sense, which gives us the opportunity to evolve to a higher level of consciousness.
