Angel of Unity for The Garden of Nations in Ramallah, Palestine
The Angel as an icon of a new great story of awakening
In the artwork The Angel of Unity as a gesture of Peace initiated by the Dutch Government, three equal wings meet in the nucleus. These 3 wings represent the religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam which merge into a meaningful, connecting message of peace and harmony to the world.
Angels as metaphors for a New Humanity and World View
In our work the Angel is a conceptual metaphor for the metaphysical 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.
Standing here in The Parc of Nations in Ramallah, Palestine, We would like to thank all parties involved by the placement of the Angle of Unity. We like to end up with the visionary statement of Teilhard de Chardin: “The future belongs to those who give the next generations reason for hope”!
