Louvre Pyramid

We all like to explore a lot about our history specially the Illuminati part in Christianity.As well as the myth rivalry going on from many years between the controversies of Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ.But all answers we can get from one pyramid as a hint to explore more which was designed by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei.As this pyramid is made of large glasses and metal.This pyramid is located in Paris as one of the major landmarks in the city.This was completed in 1989.As this is not only the lonely pyramid but it is surrounded by three smaller pyramids.

Detail underground structure of Louvre Pyramid

This structure, which was constructed entirely with glass segments, reaches a height of 21.6 metres (71 ft); its square base has sides of 35 metres (115 ft). It consists of 603 rhombus-shaped and 70 triangular glass segments.The pyramid and the underground lobby beneath it were created because of a series of problems with the Louvre’s original main entrance, which could no longer handle the enormous number of visitors on an everyday basis.Visitors entering through the pyramid descend into the spacious lobby then re-ascend into the main Louvre buildings.

Several other museums have duplicated this concept, most notably the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The Dolphin Centre, featuring a similar pyramid, was opened in April 1982, by Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester. The construction work on the pyramid base and underground lobby was carried out by the Vinci construction company.

Controversy following this pyramid :

One of the first controversies following this pyramid is The Inverted Pyramid.As this inverted pyramid is built in the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall in front of the Louvre Museum in France. It may be thought of as a smaller sibling of the more famous Louvre Pyramid proper, yet turned upside down: its upturned base is easily seen from outside.But it is not the controversy,the Inverted Pyramid figures prominently on the concluding pages of Dan Brown’s international bestseller The Da Vinci Code. The protagonist of his novel, Robert Langdon, reads esoteric symbolism into the two pyramids: The Inverted Pyramid is perceived as a Chalice, a feminine symbol, whereas the stone pyramid below is interpreted as a Blade, a masculine symbol: the whole structure could thus express the union of the genders. Moreover, Brown’s protagonist concludes that the tiny stone pyramid is actually only the apex of a larger pyramid (possibly the same size as the inverted pyramid above), embedded in the floor as a secret chamber. This chamber is said to enclose the body of Mary Magdalene.


Surrounding Pyramids
Inverted Pyramid following myth…

Dan Brown was not the first writer to offer esoteric interpretations of the Inverted Pyramid. In Raphaël Aurillac’s work Le guide du Paris maçonnique the author declares that the Louvre used to be a Masonic temple. To Aurillac, the various glass pyramids constructed in recent decades include Masonic symbolism. Aurillac sees the downward-pointing pyramid as expressing the Rosicrucian motto V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (Visita Interiorem Terrae Rectificandoque / Invenies Occultum Lapidem, “Visit the interior of the earth and… you will find the secret stone“). Another writer on Masonic architecture, Dominique Setzepfandt, sees the two pyramids as suggesting “the compass and square that together form the Seal of Solomon”.

666 the sign of devil :

It has been claimed by some that the glass panes in the Louvre Pyramid number exactly 666, “the number of the beast”, often associated with Satan. Dominique Stezepfandt’s book François Mitterrand, Grand Architecte de l’Univers declares that “the pyramid is dedicated to a power described as the Beast in the Book of Revelation .The entire structure is based on the number 6.”The story of the 666 panes originated in the 1980s, when the official brochure published during construction did indeed cite this number (even twice, though a few pages earlier the total number of panes was given as 672 instead). The number 666 was also mentioned in various newspapers. The Louvre museum however states that the finished pyramid contains 673 glass panes (603 rhombi and 70 triangles).

As there are many secrets and myths following this pyramid.Lets see what happens in future and what controversies this pyramid face in future.
