By JÖRG WOLLSCHLAGER | In early November 2021, a statue of a winged jaguar was erected in front of the UN’s visi­tors‘ plaza, evoking asso­cia­tions among some Chris­tians in the US with the first beast from the Book of Reve­la­tion or Apoca­lypse. According to the UN, it is a guar­dian of „inter­na­tional peace and secu­rity“. So are the Chris­tians wrong and is their inter­pre­ta­tion based only on imagi­na­tion and paranoia?

 

They only quote the second part of chapter 13 from the Book of Reve­la­tion (13:2) „and the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great autho­rity“ and leave out the first part (13:1) which speaks of seven heads and ten horns when describing the beast. At first glance, there­fore, a compa­rison does not seem very appro­priate here. But what is this offi­cially well-crafted work of art of a winged jaguar all about?

„Alebrijes“, folk-mythical art figures.

The statue is a gift to the UN from the Mexican state of Oaxaca, made by the excep­tio­nally talented artists Jacobo and Maria Angeles, and is intended to be an alle­go­rical guar­dian of „inter­na­tional peace and secu­rity“, according to the UN. The mystical beings known as Alebrijes in local tradi­tion hark back to popular pre-Colum­bian beliefs. The name „Alebrijes“ refers to a vision that the carto­nero or papier-mache artist Pedro Linares López had in 1936 while deli­rious from fever. A donkey with butterfly wings, a rooster with the horns of a bull and a lion with an eagle’s head kept calling out the imagi­nary word Alebrijes to him. This art move­ment first gained inter­na­tional atten­tion through the two commu­nist artists Diego Riviera and Frieda Kahlo.

Lucifer Trust

What did the jaguar stand for in pre-Colum­bian cultures? As the hunter of the twilight, the jaguar symbo­lised the night for the Maya and, as a feared pred­a­tory cat, was also the power attri­bute of the demons of the under­world. Other indi­ge­nous pre-Colum­bian cultures had similar animistic beliefs. The UN does not repre­sent or promote Chris­tian beliefs. On the contrary, the Lucis Trust (form­erly the Lucifer Trust), which more or less func­tions as the reli­gious depart­ment of the Uno, bases its teachings on the ideas of the esote­ri­cist and occul­tist Alice Baily. One also thinks of the black magnetide stone in the medi­ta­tion room of the UN, which is asso­ciated with a Saturn cult and is remi­nis­cent of the Kaaba in Mecca. Against this back­ground, the mistrust of belie­ving Chris­tians towards the World Government Orga­ni­sa­tion and its chosen symbo­lism is justified.
