Leonardo da Vinci's Leda with Swan Mystical Knowledge

Ancient Worlds Teachings from Leonardo da Vinci's - Leda with Swan

by Nataša Pantović

During 1505-1510, in Florence, Leonardo da Vinci paints his Leda with the Swan, with the motif of a natural landscape untouched by a human hand, depicting Leda and her lover, the Swan, Zeus disguised, the father of the s.

I was surprised to see the same Leda in Leonardo’s Madonna of the Rocks as a mystical metaphor for Mary.

Playing with our subconscious and using his art to awaken deep emotions, painting with contrasting colors, this genius indirectly tells us where our attraction comes from, and what is our  connecting with, why is Light so important for us...

Leda with Swans Leonardo da Vinci 1510

Leda with Swans Leonardo da Vinci 1510

Leda as Venus and our Concept of Beauty

Leda has exaggerated curves, as antique statues of Venus had, linking with our subconscious concept of love, a perfect youthful face, with a long pointed nose and no eyebrows, no wrinkles, totally symmetrical, surrounded with gold and sparkles, the body that shines with light, pointing at her children, hatching from eggs.

The original of the painting is lost, probably deliberately destroyed, and was last recorded in the French royal Court in 1625. However the picture is known from many copies, of which the earliest is probably the Spiridon Leda, now in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Madonna of the Rocks by Leonardo

The same Leda was depicted in Leonardo’s symbolism as metaphors for Mary.

A perfect face far too young to be a mother, removed from all the shades of childbirth or motherhood suffering, with the hair-style that you find only in a carefully straightened, with lots of trouble contained curly hair, surely never used in a “staple” condition of Jesus’ birth, with a chubby, happy, content, over-sized baby, awakening “oh, how sweeet” emotional reaction within us, with no “suffering” faces of all ages to remind us that Life is a Struggle.

This painting is known as Madonna of the Rocks. The earlier version is in The Louvre in Paris and the latter one is in the National Gallery, in London. Both are nearly 2 meters high and painted in oils on wooden panel.

Age of Enlightenment in Venice and Sandro Botticelli’s Venus

Coming from the same city Venice, just a bit earlier (1445 – 1510) we find Sandro Botticelli’s Venus equally entrancing. Some years back, even though this was not my conscious intention, when I visited the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, I just could not get out of the room of where the Botticelli’s Venus was and even though I consciously wished to pay respect to other Masters within the same Gallery, I had to return to silence and divine expansion experienced watching Venus’s adventures.

Birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli 1482, in Uffizi Gallery in Florence

“For primitive man… His country is neither a geographical nor a political entity. It is that territory which contains his mythology, his religion, all his thinking and feeling in so far as he is unconscious of these functions… Primitive man is un-psychological. Psychic happenings take place outside him in an objective way. Even the things he dreams about are real to him…”

Jung, Lecture, Archaic Man, Collected Works, Civilization in Transition

Don’t you find Mythology to be the most fascinating science? Passed through pictures, like the ancient Egyptian spirituality, whether Christians, Muslims or Hindus, Taoist, Jews, Atheists or Buddhists, our scientists, applied psychologists and researchers, always followed their inner-most drive for goodness as their souls’ quest, no matter what their have chosen as their personal growth system. While in Malta I was graced to meet some of the most inspiring Catholic Priests, father George for example, helped my adoption journey introducing me to Sister’s Luganda’s Ethiopian orphanage, both of them around 60, still following the path of Jesus helping poor within their missions!

Back in the day, by around the 2000 BC to 700 BC, Mesopotamia was ruled by Amorites, the Amorites (/ˈæməˌraɪts/; Sumerian MAR.TU; Egyptian Amar; Hebrew אמורי ʼĔmōrī; Ancient Greek: Ἀμορραῖοι) established Babylon as their largest city. The term Amurru in Sumerian texts refers to both them and to their principal deity. It was the largest city in the world (10 square km), the first city to reach a population above 200,000 people.

Back in the day, their ancient wisdom was passed to us, their ancestors, through pictures on the temples’ walls or vases. So, the whole world of mythological creatures was a gift of conscious and unconscious learnings and some exceptionally talented scientists of the last 200 years devoted their lives to translate these works. When I for the first time held the 16th century book of Plato, in an attempt to closer examine the Old Greeks writingssince it is closer to the way we express our thoughts, I was completely intrigued by the book! It was TINY!!!! Since there was no printing press, his books were just a few A6 pages long.

So when we read “1,000s of Greek boats sailed across the sea to battle a monster…” we call it a myth, a mixture of truth and reality, yet ancient Greeks or Egyptians never drew an image of 1,000 boats, but two indicating “many”, and they drew a monster not necessarily because they believed in monsters but perhaps to warn us against a more advanced enemy that uses fire as weapon, or they encountered a disease sent by Gods – a type of madness perhaps for drinking salty waters, etc... How deeply words get lost in translation! If you wish to explore any subject further, I encourage you my dear consciousness researcher to follow the original research of our ancestors trusting their wisdom inspired logic, going back to the ancient Egyptian paintings and Greek paintings for guideline. Trust me, our brains are no better nor worse than our ancestors’, we just live surrounded by different set of circumstances, and we may or may not use the opportunity to learn from their wisdom inspired knowledge.

Apollo was the God of healing, music and poetry, but also of oracles. Is this a message to use poetry, and music while talking to Gods?

Hermes was the God of travelers and thieves and he played lyre, a bit like our Gypsis…

Our journey from worshiping silence towards the worship of God’s names to Idol worship

21st Century Spiritual Renaissance

Demystifying Magic When Eastern Aum meets Western Amen

It has all started and in its puzzling complexity ends with the worship of (in Arabic the name for God is Alah) or divine, its omnipresent Cosmic entity, in Taoism known as Tao, materialised through trinity of forces (in Hindhuism known as rajas, satwas and tamas) within four elements of Gaia: earth, water, sun, and air. In their wisdom Chinese philosophers and ancient sages, even managed to further refine them deviding the manifestations of earth into wood and metal, exploring the dance of five instead of four elements. Within the western worlds, inside the works of greatest philosophers, mystics and artists we find this wisdom sparkled knowledge.
