Pehernefer: The Authentic Massacre of the Innocent Image Painting Number 103

Much is known about this scribe, a story teller without equal. His titles include

One of the “Great ten of Upper Egypt” (Egyptian: Wer-medj-shemaw)

He who’s under the head of the king (Egyptian: Heri-tep-nesw) (But this is incorrect it should be ‘queen’ – you can’t expect archaeologists to get it ALL right).

Overseer of the treasuries (Egyptian: Imi-ra per-hedj)

Overseer of all royal works (Egyptian: Imi-ra kat-nebet net-nesw)

Overseer of the royal granaries (Egyptian: Imj-ra schenut-nebut inet-nesu)

You can be sure the list goes on (and on) – titles were flung about on the wind. Nothing is known about Pehernefer’s family (that’s because he didn’t have one – except for the Lammasu tribe who took him in after he was abandoned in the Western desert (that’s how he got that title – I told you titles were blown in).  So what does all this have to do with ‘endings and beginnings’? Not much really simply because the Bhubezi Women are STILL trying to find the keys so that nothing ends – or begins in fact.

Pehernefer had this gift thing, given to him by Hatshepsut – who you should all know by now is a Bhubezi Woman – that enabled him to triple-read any scroll given to him.

He could see the current writing, the history of the writing and its place in the future. Right now, sitting at 4pm with an old scroll found (forward time) at the Alexandrian Library, he could hear the same words Lammasu heard – the Red Giraffe and Traveller were at his elbow, pulling him back to sanity.

This and that

Its been a while, but I HAVE been busy.  First of all here’s  a course to attend.  A friend Daniyel Berry (Style Me – Image Consulting) and I were talking.  I had been wanting to give a course in accessing instinctive creativity and this was the perfect opportunity to put together something which I hope will be a great success.  It certainly has got me thinking and coalescing thoughts which have been milling about. Thats the thing about not having a permanent JOB – theres too much to do!!! give-me-back-my-mo-jo-cheryl-penn-accessing-instinctual-creativity

Books added to An Encyclopedia of Everything/New Alexandrian Library

I’m trying really hard to catch my tail, to little avail.  The artists book platform will be closing down in October, so I have begun a new site for book makers who wish to collaborate – either with me, or in groups.  I confess that making books has slowed down considerably as I am tackling an enormous paiNTing project (details follow shortly).  The google blog is a little clumsy, but its all I can manage right now. Here follow some additions to An Encyclopedia of Everything:

Bhubezi Mythology – At the Gate of All Nations

The Authentic Massacre of the Innocent Image. Painting # 102.

bhubezi-mythology-lamassu-cheryl-penn

Remember this part of the story?

“”Lamassu, for those sufficiently interested was actually the name of Hypatia’s guardian (of COURSE she existed before the Alexandrian library). He protected her like a lion from her beginnings and THAT is where the iconography of his speed and strength occurs. There were a succession of dapper, lion-like men with the strength of bulls who protected the Bhubezi Women, but that’s part of another story”.

Anyway:

When we left him last he was surreptitiously pulling a piece of Erichs map out his Saville row suit pocket, and one glyph in the corner was glowing. Worse, if he had to leave in a hurry, the two Finders were still missing.  The Moor minions were also looking hugely suspicious and all this attention was causing his Man-Face to slip to his older self – the one who tackled the Barbarians who mistreated Hypatia.

How much more…

and suddenly

The Red Giraffe and Traveller   were at his elbow, pulling him back to sanity.

Bible Exhibition

We are attempting to revamp an old tool used for Gospel Proclamation – the Bible Exhibition.  In the old days, this exhibition travelled around the country and had a very positive effect in terms of building comrade with the members who manned it, as well as those who were introduced to the Christadelphians via this interactive means.  The stands have rusted (and they were LARGE) – TRUCKS were used to cart this effort around and many ‘bits’ have been lost.  To try streamline the current effort, hollow core doors (.85m X 2.1m) are  painted and hinged together to form cubicles in which various artefacts are displayed or hung.  It has taken shape more as a visual journey through the Bible, starting at Genesis and (God willing) working through to Revelation. There will be 66 panels in total.  Here are some efforts so far:

fullsizerender

In the Beginning

bible-exhibition-abraham

Tower of Babel/Promises to Abraham (Genesis).  Additions to the panels include cuneiform tablets (replica’s), scrolls  and books.

bible-exhibition-egypt

Incomplete Egyptian panel showing the Book of the Dead ( a VERY old copy) and a pot made from Egyptian paste (material from which the scarab beetles were moulded).

bible-exhibition-christadelphians

Moses and the parting of the Red Sea (2 panels) (Book of Exodus)

bible-exhibition

Fall of Jericho and Sampson (Books of Joshua and Judges)

The Exhibition also contains a reasonable quantity of very old Bibles – its remarkable to be able to handle these old volumes – the journey of the Bible, to reach us today is truly remarkable.
