OCCULT SYMBOLISM of FREEMASON sculptor ANTON ANREITH – Freemasonry is as old as Cape Town itself, and indeed, de Goede Hoop Lodge was designed by Freemason architect Louis Michel Thibault, built by Freemason Hermann Schutte, and decorated with sculptures and reliefs by Freemason Anton Anreith.

Anton Anreith was known as South Africa’s first sculptor, originating from Germany, he is known for numerous sculptural embellishments that adorn buildings in the Cape region of South Africa.

Like most secret societies, Freemasons are endowed with the secret language of symbology, which becomes evident when we examine the sculptures and reliefs of Freemason Anton Anreith, which give clear indication as to his occult knowledge as a highly initiated Freemason.

There are certain very distinctive themes which are symbolically hidden in the works of initiated artists and sculptors, and which turn up over and over again, which is an indication of the symbolic significance of these themes.

The themes of RAPE, particularly DIVINE RAPE, as well as PEDERASY / PEDOPHILIA, are common in masterpieces of the past, and this is no accident, as these themes have deep occult ritual significance.

One of the most famous and detailed sculptural embellishments by Anton Anreith is depicted on the pediment gable of the Cloete Cellar at Groot Constantia, a historic wine estate in the Cape.

Many tourists and visitors have admired the historic work of Anton Anreith that adorn the wine cellar of Groot Constantia, but most do not really comprehend the sinister undertone, or the allegory that is hidden by symbolic expression.

The most common version of the Greek myth regarding Ganymede, details that he was the most beautiful of all the mortals, and so Zeus abducted him and took him to Olympus, where Ganymede was to serve as Zeus’s cup bearer / sex slave.

In the many artworks and sculptures depicting the Abduction and Rape of Ganymede, Zeus is commonly depicted in his theriocephalian aspect as an Eagle.  The ability to change form from one creature to another, is a power commonly referenced in many mythologies as being an attribute of the gods.

The symbol of the Eagle turns up in many different places, but is ultimately always a reference to the Greek God Zeus, who is also Jupiter under his Roman aspect.

The Rembrant painting depicting The Rape of Ganymede clearly shows that Zeus is represented as an Eagle, and Ganymede is depicted as an infant.  This is rather disturbing when we realise that this painting in effect propagates pedophilia toward an infant.

Acts of sodomy and pedophilia are considered sacred rituals in honour of Zeus.

Cases of sexual abuse of children by members of Roman Catholic orders, have lead to many investigations and exposes.  The scale and prevalence of this abuse is so vast that it is no longer a hidden secret.  In fact, there is a Roman Catholic Church law called  Crimens Sollicitationis which orders the covering up of all child sex crimes by members of the clergy, with the threat of being excommunicated for non-compliance.

What most people do not realise is that engaging in sexual activity with a child is part of the ritual tradition behind the core root religion of Ophiolatry, which is the root religion from which all other religions have evolved.  It is part of the ritual tradition of occult secret societies, and often forms part of their initiation rituals.

Historically, pederasty has existed as a variety of customs and practices within different cultures.  The status of pederasty has changed over the course of history, at times considered an ideal and at other times a crime.

Within occult secret societies, sexual abuse and sacrifice of children is a common practice, and is considered to be necessary and central to the ritual practices of occult secret society initiates, and indeed, the priestly class of modern day Roman Catholicism.

The theme of RAPE, particularly the theme of DIVINE RAPE, being rape by a god / gods,  is continuous throughout mythology, and is a popular subject for occult society initiated artists.  The deeper allegory of this indicates the interbreeding between gods and humans, which is discussed in the Genesis 6 verse 4:

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore children to them.  Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

The Rape of Leda is a common theme of of many artworks, and feature Zeus / Jupiter again taking on the form of a bird, which is a common theme for shape shifting gods.  The Egyptian Sun God Horus for example, takes on the form of a peregrin falcon.  The Holy Spirit is often depicted as a dove.  In the story pertaining to Rape of Leda, the god Zeus / Jupiter, takes on the form of a SWAN.  Much like Zeus takes the form of an EAGLE and rapes the youth Ganymede, so to does the Zeus take on the form of the SWAN, and rapes Leda.

Leonardo da Vinci was known to be an initiated member of the Priory of Sion, endowed with occult knowledge and the understanding of symbolism.  This was skilfully depicted in many of da Vinci’s artworks.  Indeed, many have tried to copy the da Vinci original of Leda and the Swan, which rather interestingly depicts the offspring of Leda and the Swan, being little babies hatching from eggs.

The symbolic allegory pertaining to the EAGLE and a the SWAN are of a similar origin, alluding to Zeus / Jupiter, and the use of EAGLES and SWANS in symbolic allegory, turns up in some rather interesting places.

It is interesting to note that there is a SWAN that has been included as part of the embellishment crowning the pulpit of the Lutheran church in Cape Town, the vary same pulpit that was carved by Freemason Anton Anreith.

This pulpit was commissioned by wealthy Lutheran Martin Melck, who also commissioned Anton Anreith to create the sculptural embellishments that adorn Martin Melck’s house in present day Strand Street in Cape Town.

A close up  look at the central feature of the relief on the pediment of Martin Melck House, will reveal the presence of a SWAN.  The SWAN is symbolic of Zeus / Jupiter, and inextricably linked with the story which links Zeus / Jupiter to the rape of Leda.

Zeus / Jupiter goes on to rape several more times according to mythology, including the goddess after whom the the continent on which I now live, is named, being Europa.

Rape is a common topic in history and mythology.  A list of notable victims of rape from history and mythology includes:.

  • Leda from Greek mythology, raped by Zeus in the form of a swan.
  • Cassandra from Greek mythology; raped by Ajax the Lesser
  • Chrysippus from Greek mythology; raped by his tutor Laius
  • Antiope from Greek mythology; raped by Zeus
  • Persephone from Greek mythology; raped by Hades. This is traditionally referred to as the Rape of Persephone. Roman mythology refers to it as the Rape of Prosperina.
  • Dinah from the Hebrew Bible; raped by a Canaanite prince and avenged by her brothers
  • Lucretia from Roman legend/history; raped by a prince, Sextus Tarquinius.
  • Medusa from Greek mythology; raped by Poseidon
  • Philomela from Greek and Roman mythology; raped by her brother in law
  • Rindr from Norse mythology, raped by Odin in Saxo Grammaticus‘ version of the engendering of Baldr‘s avenger
  • Rogneda of Polotsk from Belarus/Scandinavian history; raped by Vladimir, half-brother of her betrothed Yaropolk I of Kiev, in the presence of her parents (10th century)
  • The Sabine women; raped by the founders of Rome according to its legendary history
  • Tamar from the Hebrew Bible; raped by her half-brother Amnon.
  • The daughters of Leucippus, Phoebe and Hilaeira, were abducted, raped and later married by Castor and Pollux. In return, Idas and Lynceus, nephews of Leucippus and rival suitors, killed Castor.
  • Agnes of Rome, was a young girl of around 12 or 13 years of age, who consecrated her virginity to Christ, and was dragged to a brothel to be raped, in a bid to make her recant her Christian faith. Instead, many of the men who tried to molest her ended up being inflicted with blindness or even died.
  • Hera was raped by her brother Zeus, she then married him to cover her shame

The theme of RAPE is often not condemned in mythologies of the past, and is in fact revered through ritual celebration which invokes the use of symbolic allegory to mask the true form and function of the perpetrators of the rape, the act of rape, and the rituals that relate to this.  Acts of RAPE are largely performed as part of ritual to commemorate the interbreeding between the gods and humans, which spawned the royal / angelic / dragon bloodlines which rule humanity to this very day

The theme of RAPE is constant throughout the artworks of grandmasters, who were by and large, all initiated into occult secret societies, which is why so many of the grand masters of the past, convey occult symbolism and their related themes, such as RAPE and PEDOPHILIA, in their artworks.

When acts of rape are so traumatic, it seems rather in bad taste for these scenes of brutality to be constantly reinterpreted in artworks, and one would not be amiss in asking, why the almost perverted obsession by these artists and sculptors, in conveying such a dark and brutal theme.  It is only when one grasps the full extent of the symbolic allegory and ritual significance of these acts, will one begin to grasp the reasoning behind the prevalence of such artworks.

In all places where the Roman Cult / Jesuits / Knights / Freemasons, have been, the spread their symbolism to mark their territory, and to let those who are initiated, and who understand the symbolism, know that the Hidden Hand behind world affairs, is alive and operating, even in South Africa.

Although the truth about the nature of our reality may be hard to face sometimes, it is important that we do not remain ignorant of the true nature of the dark forces that manipulate South Africa from behind the scenes.
