I have one more.

Two weekends ago I re-watched Disney's version of the Three Musketeers (~1993). Within the first 10 minutes of the movie (on the DVD it was around minute 14) they show the outside gate of Musketeers headquarters: BIG EYE with lids surrounded by swirls and flourishes of the time period in the center of arch atop the stone gate like a star on a christmas tree.

Maybe that's the "1990s american" interpretation of a "watchdog group" symbol to put in when making a movie from the 17th century, but you have to admit, THAT'S WIERD!
AND unnecessary! All you needed were those swords and king's musketeer uniforms to know that this group were royal loyalists you didn't want to mess with.

GreyJedi -- your Dior commercial reminds me of that Imaginarium movie with Heath Ledger a few years ago. The "good" guy has these ladies go through the secret "hidey-hole" (some portal of "enlightenment") and then swing back out to our reality tossing all their worldly goods to the bystanders.

Snow Queens and Mirrors and baphomets, oh my

PostThu Oct 02, 2014 1:51 pm

Fairytales usually have about a dozen different versions.

While watching the BBC version of The Snow Queen, I saw a baphomet. Here is the context:
If you don't know the story, a girl and her mother rescues a homeless abandoned boy from the cold winter. The girl and boy are great friends until one day he gets hit in the eye by a malevolent force. After that the boy becomes very cruel, runs away from the family that provided him friendship and shelter, and is incited into clutches of the Snow White. But the girl goes looking for him.

One of the places she stops is at the palace of the king, who tells her the Legend of the Mirror. An evil magician "some say was the devil himself" created a mirror that made the beautiful appear ugly and the ugly 10 times worse. At this point the movie illustrates the Legend of the Mirror with several picture of the wizard, including a baphoment, a skeleton in the same pose, and a man with crown in the same pose. The Legend goes on to relate how the mirror was broken in to bilions of pieces, including particles as fine as sand and snow that could get lodged into people's eyes, can change their characters into something ugly.

This DVD has a copyright date of 2005 and is clearly meant for kids. Funny how prevassive these sysmbols are when you know what you're seeing.
