The Guardian of Truth

 

The Production

 

The creation of the original model utilizes virtually every standard and state of the art
3-D production technology that currently exists.

 

The eight point star design is so intricate it first required Monte’s highly detailed structural drawings which were transferred into a three dimensional digital database. That digital file was then downloaded into a computer controlled micro C.N.C. router machine that produced a wax model designed to accept a matching set of fifteen jewellery quality diamonds of various sizes.

 

The wax star was then cast in bronze and detailed by a professional jeweler prior to actually setting the jewels after attachment of the metal star to the sword blade tips.

 

The sword blades were hand made by the artist and because of production requirements had to be detachable and interlocking with the sword handles which are hollow to accept attachment after casting.

 

The blades were then turned over to the jeweler for jewel presetting and metal casting. The swords are embellished with six jewels each.

 

The necklace on the angel is also embellished with a single marquee shaped flame red sapphire which is placed precisely at the location of the human heart chakra. The heart chakra jewel is extremely important for the energy flow of the sculpture as will be explained later.

 

Note that the overall outline shape created by all the inset jewels is a diamond configuration.

 

The same digital technology was utilized to create the 38" long wings. The design required Monte’s free hand drawings done in layers. These drawings and a sculpted, to scale, clay section of the wing was supplied to a 3-D digital engineer. Because of the articulate complexity of the design the finished wing models took over a year to produce.

 

The effect and presentation of the finished metal is that of “Phoenix” style wings of fire which is of key importance to the message of the sculpture.

 

The tapered Helix on the obelisk is a separate “on lay”. It required an expert graphic designer with over site by the artist for the two dimensional design concept. This was again rendered into 3-D digital domain and downloaded into a “3-D printer”. The printer produces by layer upon layer of a liquid that when exposed to concentrated ultra violet light instantly solidifies. Thus, one layer + light, one layer + light produces a 3-D model that is not achievable by any other means. The solidified helix was then meticulously hand sanded and detailed by the artist in the last step before molding and the lost wax production into metal.

 

The obelisk is 1/4" thick bronze and had to be transferred from Monte’s detailed pencil drawings to computerized water jet cutting technology to avoid any possibility of heat wrapping.

 

The base of the obelisk is 1/4" stainless steel created with the same procedures. Inside the obelisk is a 7" tall Citrine Crystal. Citrine is a solar plexus chakra stone used metaphysically to increase, magnify and clarify personal power and to receive, as well as transmit energy. The crystal is mounted in the base because of the energy of abundance and grounding to earth.

 

The finish is gloss black baked enamel paint which looks like polished black marble. It is extremely durable.

 

The Angelic Symbols (front) and writing (both sides) are deeply engraved into the obelisk. The English translation of both is engraved into the base structure.

 

Once again, digital, computer controlled machining was required because of the free form design.

 

The sculpted wings and the body of the angel are highly detailed.

 

The overall structural engineering and production quality is of the highest quality available on the planet

 

The Guardian is designed and built to last essentially forever.

 

 

 

Explanation

The words and symbols on the obelisk are translated to the English words engraved in the base.

 

These words and symbols represent the seven steps to the ascension of the soul. They correlate as follows:

 

TRUTH WITHIN THE CREATION THAT IS ALL

REMEMBRANCE ALL THAT IS WITHIN YOU IS PERFECT IN ITS STATE

KNOWLEDGE TO BE CREATED IN PERFECTION

WISDOM TO LIVE IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR SOUL

LIGHT TO RISE ABOVE AGAIN AND AGAIN

FORMLESS FOR YOU ARE ETERNAL

LOVE IN LOVE

 

 

Now apply the same sequence to the structure of the Guardian.

 

TRUTH – The base, the foundation of all spiritual learning.

“WITHIN THE CREATION THAT IS ALL”

REMEMBRANCE – The rising form of the obelisk itself.

“ALL THAT IS WITHIN YOU IS PERFECT IN ITS STATE”

KNOWLEDGE – The tapered helix representing physical DNA.

It is connected at both ends representing infinity.

“TO BE CREATED IN PERFECTION”

 

WISDOM – The physical form of the angel itself, incarnation.

“TO LIVE IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR SOUL”

LIGHT – The phoenix wings of fire. Risen “again and again” from the ashes as humanity has done so many times.

“TO RISE ABOVE AGAIN AND AGAIN”

 

FORMLESS – The heart chakra jewel. The heart of course being the eternal link or lens between the physical and spiritual dimensions.

“FOR YOU ARE ETERNAL”

 

LOVE – The eight point jeweled star. The same basic design as the directional symbol on many maps. The purest truth of all creation.

“IN LOVE”

Conclusion

 

“The Guardian of Truth” is exactly what the title implies.

 

It is a guiding light to all humanity and a marker in time.

Created in a spectacular and breath taking presentation to honour and commemorate what we, as a people, are now engaged in. The greatest crescendo of human evolution in the history of this world.

The overall design configuration of “The Guardian” is similar to a radar dish. It both receives and transmits. The full spectrum of that power will be revealed in due course.

 

Nothing less could be appropriate for the unfolding story that will live forever in the eternity of our universe.

 

I thank you for your investment in this unparallel artistic tribute and know that your contribution will help me to bring this forth to as much of the world as possible.

 

This is truly the dawning of an incredible new age beyond our minds comprehension.
