Charlotte Bank of America Murals

And you thought the Denver Airport had creepy murals.

"The Vigilant Citizen" over at the In Pursuit of Happiness blog has a loopy study of the "shocking" frescos at Bank of America's Corporate Center (originally the NationsBank Corporate Center) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Created in 1992 by artist Benjamin Long, the paintings are described as centering around themes of “making/building, chaos/creativity, and planning/knowledge in a “daring blend of abstract and realism, set off with touches of gold“.

Naturally, Mr. Vigilant believes they are full of occult, alchemical and Masonic symbolism, which he then connects back to—you guessed correctly—the Denver Airport murals.

The Vigilant Citizen bills his site with the tag line "symbols rule the world, not words nor laws," and he's the same navel gazer who peered deeply at the Chilean mine cave in and rescue in October and discovered it all to be a symbolic Masonic cornucopia.

A video about the Bank's fresco and their creation by Ben Long can be seen here.
