Life Columns and Regeneration Images
4’x 5,’ acrylic paint, canvas, prints

All images represented in these woodblock prints are from ancient matristic origin. The upper band dates to early 4th millennium, B.C… similar images have been found dating to 30,000 years ago. These engravings are found on stone columns, located off the coast of Brittany in passage grave shrines and also in grave shrines of Ireland and other countries. An obstacle to the study of this ancient culture has resulted from assumption that the culture would be a mirror image of our own. Researcher J.J Bachofen, of the 20th century stated, “the scholar must be able to renounce the ideas of his own time and transfer himself to the mid point of a completely different world of thought.” To admit this difference however, is difficult.

Quote:
Information from Joseph Campbell, The language of the Goddess, Marija Gimbutas, emeritus professor of European Archaeology, UCLA

“Rosetta Stone… establish(s) a glossary of hieroglyphic signs … classification and descriptive interpretation of some two thousand symbolic artifacts from the earliest Neolithic village sites of Europe c.7000 to 3500 B.C. Marija Gimbutas has been able …prepare fundamental glossary of pictorial motifs… keys to the mythology of that… undocumented era, but also to establish on the basis of these interpreted signs the main line and themes of a religion in veneration, both of the universe as the living body of a Goddess-Mother Creator; and of all the living things within it as partaking of her divinity a religion, one … perceives…”

The Bride 1985 Copyright © Eisert Hall
“…the present culture is caught between ages. This results in discomfort even confusion. As I create these works I am aware of a struggle in my own integration. The future struggling with the past, the mind wanting the spirit as integral; emotions stilled by a question that emerges from the process of creation. I do not see my own multi level struggle as a solitary quest; it is a quest resulting from an age that is demanding a more total integration. Room is being made for both the mystic and the scientist…” Excerpt, Eisert Hall Notes, 1985

Powers 1984 Copyright © Eisert Hall

“The man described for us, whom we are invited to free, is already in himself the effect of subjection much more profound than himself. A ‘soul’ inhabits him and brings him to existence…the soul is the effect and instrument of political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body.”
