This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: VISION.
This photo was taken in the Cathedral of Málaga (formally Catedral de la Encarnación, informally, La Manquita), a Roman Catholic church in Málaga, Spain, constructed between 1528 and 1782. High above beautiful statuary, resting on a sunburst of golden rays in front of stained glass windows, is the eye of providence (“Eye of God”) watching over humanity through the clouds of Heaven. The triangle enclosing the eye represents the trinity of the Christian faith. The Catholic Church abandoned this “Eye of God” symbology once Freemasons began to use it, distancing itself from the evolving conspiracy theories and use as the “eye of the devil.”
This photo was taken on February 14, 2013. Specs are:
Olympus TG-1, ISO 1000, f/4.9, 1/25 sec, 18 mm
