Ghent Altarpiece

File:Lamgods open.jpg

The Ghent Altarpiece opens like a medicine cabinet or a kitchen cupboard, this being the inside and above being what it looks like before it’s opened, what it looks like closed.

(Now I’m reading that those 2 prophets are supposed to be Zecharias (sic) and Micah.

This is the “God” and later “Christ” figure on the inside center panel of the G. Altarpiece.

The Ghent Altarpiece,’s “God,” a detail from the top center of the polytyptic in a cheap black and white photocopy.

“God” of the Ghent Altarpiece, in color, and then Adam:

The Ghent Altarpiece “God”, in the middle panel on that top above. Then the “wings” panels close like a medicine cabinet and there are art pieces all on its outside too.

Those are Cain and Abel panel-pieces on the very top across on either side from this God figure. I’ll try to make a Category of this and pull the pieces together.

#176, “God” of the Ghent Altarpiece — this is like Suzy Welch’s being in charge of running this world for the Autists! — moved to the MENU, Ghent Altarpiece Subject file .pdf, I think that after it was painted that whole Jesus idea was started and this figure began then being called Jesus and that’s said to be the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist then sitting on his either side, but maybe originally they were meant to depict the parents of the figure.

I think that that boy in the orange behind the big red-cloaked “St. Christopher” figure has this Autism that I’m talking about and is misleading the “St. Christopher” and therefore the whole world on into this future we’ve got, misleading him in not telling him about the “Neanderthal buddies” of the Autist people. Besides that the guy in between those 2 figures is wearing a “Shell” insignia on his hat. They were souvenirs from making that pilgrimage out to La Finistre behind Santiago de Compostela on the west cliff coast of Spain. I think that’s where the logo for the Royal Dutch Shell petroleum company came from, those early days like depicted in the full polyptych, like close to 19 pieces to the whole Ghent Altarpiece; van Eyck c. 1432.
 — link to the Wikipedia article with all the pictures. — Adoration of the Mystic Lamb

The central Adoration of the Mystic Lamb panel. The groupings of figures are, from top left anti-clockwise: the male martyrs, the pagan writers and Jewish prophets, the male saints, and the female martyrs.

Measuring 134.3 x 237.5 cm,[37] the center panel has as its centerpiece an altar on which the Lamb of God is positioned, standing in a verdant meadow, while the foreground shows a fountain. Five distinct groups of figures surround altar and fountain. In the mid-ground two further groups figures are seen gathering; the dove of the Holy Spirit is above. The meadow is framed by trees and bushes; with the spires of Jerusalem visible in the background. Dhanens says the panel shows “a magnificent display of unequaled color, a rich panorama of late medieval art and the contemporary world-view.”[38] The iconography, suggested by the groupings of the figures, appears to follow the liturgy of All Saints’ Day.[39

The above is from old Istanbul, Constantinople, Byzantium, the same trio-set as the Ghent Altarpiece.
The Latin motto, “JOANNES EST NOMEN EJUS” (a quotation from the Vulgate of Luke 1:63), means “John is his name”, referring to St. John the Baptist or San Juan Bautista, the original name of the island.
