Golden Plant: symbol of desire

Reaching your unique potential source: it’s exactly what is expressed by the Golden Plant, a 2.20 meter high abstract Humankind-Plant: The Spiritual Dimension of Human being. It became their symbol for the desire of mankind to become who we really are, to grow from darkness into the light and to explore our existence. In this way, the Golden Plant is a universal symbol for a newly awakened spiritual view on mankind and the world. More and more it becomes clear that the processes and outcomes of the global change in consciousness and awareness are initiated by women.

Female Energy: the project
The project Female Energy consists of the Golden Plant as icon of the manifest Female Energy which you can read below. Also, the artists have sent out in Juli 2010, 33 golden Seedlings, miniature versions of the Golden Plant, to 33 extraordinary women who contribute to the Changing Awareness in this world: Amy Tan, Anne Hastings, Annine van der Meer, Brandon Bays, Caroline Cory, Christine Pannebakker, Ciska Dresselhuys, Danah Zohar, Esra’a Al Shafei, Eve Ensler, Fiona Montagu, Hoda Al Khamis-Kanoo, Inez van Oord, Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld, Isabelle Allende, Karen Armstrong, Lulu Wang, Marianne Williamson, Nalini Nadkarni, Nancy Lublin, Narisscia Botha, Neelie Kroes, Ogega Moturi, Paola Antonelli, Rickie Byars Beckwith, Shirly Nicholson, Sima Samar, Somaly Mam, Wangari Maathai. The Golden Plant and the golden Seedlings are the key symbols of the art project The Unifying Spiritual Field of the World.

In this project a field is the image of the earth, in which every human being is part of the entire process of progress and evolution, inspired by the often deeply hidden desire to explore the germ of our existence, symbolized by plants. They made a total of 990 small gilded Seedlings and 1+9 gold plated Plants which they have been sowing (and still do) all over the earth since 1991, awarding them to people who specifically contribute to the Changing Awareness. The 6th sowing is dedicated to women in the project Female Energy.

Quantum-Art:
In the more than 50 years artistic language of Huub and Adelheid Kortekaas the metaphysical and spiritual New Renaissance of mankind is among others being visualized in the Quantum-Art projectsThe Spiritual Garden, Anima Mundi and The Alphabet of Architecture and the images of angels, gates, plants, temples, graves, gardens, seats and their home in the Netherlands, de Tempelhof, the ultimate and integrated expression of this Quantum-Art.The artistic duo describes their art as Quantum-Art. This is the expression of the awareness that in the universe everything is interconnected and man is an inseparable part of it. It is the symbiosis between spirituality and economy, between culture and nature, eastern and western thinking, individuals and society, and ultimately the transformation from I to We.

MANIFEST FEMALE ENERGY (2010)

During the miracle of creation, male and female forces materialised – a truly evolutionary vision on the part of the ‘Creator’; after all, the field of tension between both forces has proved to be an inexhaustible source of creative power.

In ancient history, the Big Mother was the symbol of the sacred energy of mankind. In the course of history Woman as Goddess, as utter symbol of fertility and creative power, lost her matriarchal status to an ever increasing prominence of a patriarchal Male Image of God.

The world of art and religion offers a clear and fascinating image of this development in human thinking and action. Here we see that Woman is ‘revered and distinguished’ and put on a pedestal, but stripped of her identity and scope.

At the beginning of the previous century and later on in the 1960s and 1970s, Women’s Lib manifested itself ever clearer, especially in Europe. Woman wants to be liberated from patriarchal society, feel respected and seen as an independent and equal individual.

Viewed in the spirit of the age, Woman, by dint of her direct clarity, open-mindedness, compassion and original, creative approach to daily reality, is stepping out of obscurity and firmly finding her way in the present complex society. The arrival of the limitless Worldwide Web plays an important role in this.

We see that these signals spread across the world and realize that women increasingly have the nerve and the guts to break through existing social structures. They look for new ways to design their lives, fighting for a more humane, more harmonious society. Their decisiveness and resourcefulness increasingly substitute the prevailing and controlling patriarchal cultures.

Women are the key to opening the gates to a new society. If women across the world link up their specific female strength, they will be able to approach the disputes and longstanding feelings of hate in the world in their very own way and possibly eliminate or at least reduce them.

Evolution wise the future of the earth asks for a new global zest; the Quantum leap of the consciousness that all and everything is connected. Consciousness becomes a participating consciousness, a transition from individual to universal thinking, from I to we. A new space arises in which the female and male energies can inspire each other equally to grow to a new powerful and creative spiritual world order.

THE GOLDEN PLANT
‘THE SPIRITUAL DIMENSION OF HUMAN BEING’

of the Quantum-Art project THE UNIFYING SPIRITUAL FIELD OF THE WORLD

Tempelhof

 

The Golden Plant, this Man-Plant symbol of 2.20m in height symbolizes  the “Spiritual Dimension of Human Being”. It feels like a Quantum-leap in the field of forces of nature and culture.

The Golden Plant is intended as the global sign for universal spirituality, the ultimate sign of the awakening New Renaissance, in which the awareness of ‘The Spiritual Dimension of Human Being’ becomes the source of the modelling of one’s own, unique life.

This Golden Plant is the metaphor for the field of tension between heaven and earth, Man as form and movement, as interplay of matter and spirit, Human Being as Quantum-Art in the divine comedy of life itself. In this metaphysical field of influence Man attempts to become what he or she is in his or her deepest essence.

The Golden Plant is the icon of the potential energy that arises from our bodies. It is the image of the hidden power of each person in his longing to grow from darkness to light, a manifest universal symbol for a re-awakening spiritual image of man and the world, a gnostic sign of our alliance with the all-inspiring All.

The Golden Plant arises from the emptiness that comes into being when the 33rd word ‘Plant’ in the artproject The Metaphysical Garden is taken away;  the representation of the story of the Creation according to John, St. John 1:1  – 1:14

The birth of the Golden Plant is the inspiration for the worldwide Quantum-Artproject: The Unifying Spiritual Field of the World.
This World Acre of Peace grows from the awareness that every human being is a unique Seedling of Mother Earth on his way to a New Renaissance.

The first Golden Plant
The first Golden Plant Planted in Armenia on December 7th 1989 by the then president, Vladimir Markariants, as a sign of new life after the earthquake and as a commemoration of the birth of the initiative 
’Europolis’, a City of Peace.

The second Golden Plant
Sown on June 11th 1992 on the world’s ecology congress, UNCED Rio-’92, Brazil. It was received by Davi Yanomami and Marcos Terena, both Shaman of the Yanomami Indians, as a symbol of a worldwide respect to all Indigenous People.
The third Golden Plant
Handed over in May 1993, in The Hague (The Netherlands), to Michail Gorbatsjov, chairman of the ‘International Green Cross’.
 
The fourth Golden Plant
Handed over in Novembre 2011 to honour Mister Nelson Mandela for his persistent struggle against apartheid in South Africa, his warm-hearted thorough commitment for world peace and his call for democracy, compassion and fraternization. Nelson Mandela

The fifth Golden Plant
Handed over in August 1997  in the Hague at the International Peace Conference on North- and South Korea for the peace initiative North- and South Korea.

The sixth Golden Plant

Humankind a Flower
The plant in their total work of art is a metaphor for the individual person: humankind growing from darkness towards light. The awareness that everyone is a unique Seedling of Mother Earth, each of us connected by the intrinsic longing to become who we are in our deepest essence, makes us co- creators of our reality. This realization becomes a participatory awareness in that longing, a transition from individual to universal thought; from I toWe. They call this Quantum Art.

Angel of Unity voor The Garden of Nations, Ramallah, Palestin

Kingsday  –  April  30 – 2013
The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs offered a monumental sculpture – The Angel of Unity –
as a gesture of peace to the Palestinian community

The “Angel of Unity”,  constructed in cooperation with Palestinian support is created by the
artistic duo Huub & Adelheid Kortekaas.
The Angel depicts the 3 monotheistic religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism in 3 equal
wings which merge into a meaningful, connecting message of peace and harmony
to the Palestinian/Israelian people and the world.

.

 

Angels as metaphors for a New Humanity and World View.

In our work the Angel is a conceptual metaphor for the metafysical tension between earth and heaven, between culture and nature.The Angel as the awareness that we are, first and foremost, human beings. As such the Angel is taking on an ever-increasing aspect for the dawning of a new understanding of life, in which Humanity awakens to our role as creator of our unique Angel Energy.

The Angel Energy is the Quantum Leap in the metaphysical fields, the messenger between heaven and earth, the inspirer of the rediscovery of the Human as Spiritual Being, the Angel beyond male and female, knower of the innermost Self, pure Love, knowledge of the Heart, sender and receiver, beyond all religions, the anima animus, energy enraptured, radiant consciousness, the intellect of nature, poetry, saviour of lost souls, happiness, silence, reflection, fascination, understanding, connecting, bringer of light.

In this perspective, we would like to quote the following statement by the Dalai Lama in 2012:
“ All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether”.

The Angel as universal Icon, as conceptual artwork, where Plant, Human and cosmic awareness come together,
is the bearer of Utopia, the inspiring force to awaken the best in Humanity.
The Human Being on the way to a New Renaissance.

Speech Mayor Haddid, Ramallah

Our Friend, Ms. Birgitta Tazelaar
Head of the Netherlands representative office
Mr and Mrs Kortekaas, The artists of the “Angel”
Our distinguished guests,

Welcome to the Garden of Nations, the Garden that represents our symbol of friendship with other peoples, and where different Pieces of cultures meet in one place and different symbols of productions that address the reason, conscience and intellect help the citizens of Ramallah develop a sense of belonging to a world of great friends, and hence enrich them with more knowledge about the people who support our fair cause.

The idea of the establishment of this park is totally for the sake of having cultural exchanges and knowledge with other nations hoping it’ll serve to remove the sense of isolation, and revive the feeling of friendship and love towards our far away friends. These stones of Jerusalem that link between these pieces of arts symbolize the relationship between us and our friends as it’s the way of peace and friendship. It simply says that the stones of our Holy Land can be a path of peace and love with human cultures that are friendly to us and in support of our demands, humane and lawful conditions. The stones used are large and spacious, these used stones are of our Holy Land and are the same that we used once to resist the occupation, settlement and oppression and hence it served as a weapon against our enemies.

The existence of Garden of Nations in Ramallah enhances the vision of the municipal council and the owners of the city to its status as a global city in its way of thinking. Our city Ramallah respects intellectual pluralism, political and social development of the population, and believes in the opening up to the world to weave cultural and humane relations. The majority of the other nations are friends of ours because they are against injustice and occupation, support peace, justice and hate wars, murder and violence. And we’re all in Ramallah proud that we are proactive to express this human spirit and ideals on behalf of our people in Palestine, and this corresponds to our vision as a municipal Council of Ramallah, hence it’s from it that vision that the initiative to establish this park sprang out.

Our Dear Guests,

In the end I just would like to congratulate us all for having this distinguished peace of art “the Angel” that assures the principles of unity that we believe in. We’re happy that the artists are also present amongst us and hope that they would also have a fruitful visit through meeting Palestinian Artists.
Thank you all for being with us here today

Mayor Haddid, Ramallah

Speech by Birgitta Tazelaar, Representative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Palestinian Authority

Speech for the inauguration of the statue ‘The Angel of Unity” at the Garden of Nations, 30 April 2013
by Birgitta Tazelaar, Representative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Palestinian Authority
Thank you Mayor Haddid for your kind words. Thank you all for attending this small ceremony. Today is a special day for the Netherlands. This morning at eleven o’clock, Queen Beatrix signes the instrument of abdication in the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, a ceremony that will make the Prince of Orange, our new King: His Majesty King Willem-Alexander. His investiture will take place at exactly three o’clock today, in the 17th century New Church in Amsterdam. What a beautiful day to celebrate Netherlands – Palestinian friendship through our donation of a statue for the Garden of Nations in Ramallah.
During my first encounter with the municipality I was made aware of the garden of nations. I immediately had an urge to contribute to this beautiful project and I also immediately knew who to approach for this: Huub & Adelheid Kortekaas, artistical duo from the NL. They are artists who work not only from an artistic point of view, but also a philosophical one. They materialize what Marcus Aurelius wrote millenia ago: no matter how worthy the cause, always keep an eye for the eternal beauty surrounding you. They fight for causes such as peace and tolerance through creating beauty.
Huub and Adelheid on their turn immediately agreed and also knew which statue they thought fitted in this garden, and I fully agreed: The Angel of Unity with its three wings symbolizing the three monotheistic religions, Christianity, Islam and Judiasm – a message of peace and harmony. This statue belongs here: the Holy Land where the three faiths have a long history and hopefully a future of co-existence and harmony.
And this symbol is all the more meaningful because it was a Dutch Renaissance humanist, called Erasmus, (1466–1536), whose works laid the foundation for religious tolerance.
I find the symbol touching, and it inspired me to have a miniature of the statue to be awarded by a Palestinian jury to someone who showed courage in promoting tolerance and dialogue.
I would like to thank everyone who made this possible: Mayor, Mr Mousa Haddid, municipality staff, the former mayor Mrs Janet, the engineers, Mr Saed Abu Ghosh and Mr Sami, Huub and Adelheid Kortekaas, as well as those present and made time to join us today.
I hope that the idea behind the statue will prevail. Thank you.
