almost.... all you will ever want to know about the all seeing eye or
eye of providence!
seeing eye is a fantastic symbol despite having negative connotations
nowadays, whats so fascinating about the all seeing eye is that its
found in different continents around the world from different time
periods with slight differences between each culture in describing the
so called "evil eye".
evil eye represents the
head god of the masonic pantheon of gods and has been called many names
throughout history so its hard to give this god a particular name.
seeing eye represents the apostle Paul from the new testament and the
Bible refers to it sometimes in the old testament aswell with the "an
eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" quote as an example of it.
disease in his eye:
"Even though my illness was a trial to you, you did not treat me with
contempt or scorn. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were an angel of
God, as if I were Christ Jesus himself. What has happened to all your
joy? I can testify that, if you could have done so, you would have torn
out your eyes and given them to me."
"See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!"
can savely concur that it is indeed the apostle Paul who is the all
seeing eye in biblical scripture seeing as he's blind in one eye.
Okay onto the more interesting stuff:
left of the picture we
have the all seeing eye of Ra also known as the eye of Horus. In
Egyptian mythology the god Horus lost his eye in a skirmish with the
god Seth but this was probably in a time when they were viewed as two
different gods rather than two gods in one.
next one down with have two small pictures of statue heads of the
goddess Hera with one eye on each statue/picture which appears to be
marked in a different more vibrant colour to possibly indicate that the
eye has been damaged.
on the religion or mythlogy determines how this particlar gods eye was
top second picture along we have the god Balor the evil eye who in
Irish mythology was thought to be the king of the Formarians. Balor was
also thought to be able to shoots laser beams out of his eye and when
he died he hit the ground and his eye carved a huge crater in the
ground which later became a lake.
have Polyphemus (the
part of the name phemus indicates fame) the cyclops god who has one eye
in ancient greek mythology. Cyclops were thought to make lightening
bolts for the god Zeus in mount Olympus in Greek mythology.
"Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was
the chief speaker."
next we have three women
known as "the Graeae" who in ancient greek mythology shared one eye and
one tooth between the three of them just like the bible quote mentions!
And is mentioned in the greek mytholgy by story tellers who said that
the hero Perseus forced them to tell him the where abouts of three
objects in order to kill the infamous Medusa. There are three Graeae
because each of them represents a star in Orion's belt; Alnilam,
Alnitak and Mintaka, this also hints at the whereabouts of the all
seeing eye; so it must be in the constellation of Orion somewhere.
ancient times when there was no light pollution in the sky the reddish
hue in a shape of a circle could be seen in the night sky shaped like
an eye in the constellation of Orion.
have Odin the norse god who lost his eye in battle; again only has one
finally we have two mixtec
masks with one of them with one eye missing (apostle Paul) and has a
out which represents another god and the biblical apostle Barnabas, the
mask shows dualistic features. While the blue one looks like
it has a cataract in one eye to designate blindness and has a good eye
to designate the mixtec equivalent god of the biblical
and Paul from the bible were once one and
the same being:
"While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
"Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul (Paul) for the work to which I have
