    Perhaps a reference to the Hindenburg and a house of cards made of money?

    Methinks Daniel Milberg’s Shroud of Turin blimp image plays both with the word “hidden”, the names “Milberg/Hindenburg” and a title,”The Balloon-Hoax”, used in collections and anthologies of a newspaper article written by Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1844 (it may be a cryptic reference to wikipedia: “Originally presented as a true story, it detailed European Monck Mason’s trip across (Heb. pessaH) the Atlantic Ocean (= Alpha Omega = Christ) in only three days (re Yeshua’s Resurrection on the 3rd day/after 3 days) in a gas balloon. It was later revealed as a hoax and the story was retracted two days later. To DM, the Shroud of Turin is nothing but a hoax or a medieval fake relic to make money.

      A “Christocryptic” hidden/hindenberg reference, I would say, all the more so as the Hebrew word “Notsry” means not only “of Nazareth” but also “the one of the grottoes/crypts” and a crypt is an underground chamber to store human remains or religious relics.

    In Hebrew DaM (Da.niel M.ilberg) means blood.

    In Hebrew Yeshua Natsory (Jesus of Nazareth) means Yeshua the Hidden (Prince) and thus can read as a word play on Hinden.burg/bourg.

    It is a Panzer cross, displayed on an airship like the Hindenburg, which ended in disaster. With the Shroud-like face also displayed and the words “The Shroud of Turin” clearly seen is he trying to say that the Shroud enterprise is also doomed? That can only be known if there is more author identification.

    I just want to say that reading Max expatiating on the inherent possible meanings of this picture is an absolute joy. I’ve no idea if there is a shred of truth in them (although I do hope there is), and I would be prepared to lay a small bet that Daniel Milberg hadn’t thought of half of them, but as a flight of cryptographical interpretation I’m sure it is literally peerless.

    Hugh, when it comes to arts, both consciousness and unconsciousness are at work. There are things that may be/are even hidden to the very artist himself.

  20. Max Patrick Hamon
    April 28, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Consciousness and unconsciousness do show here at image-word play: “The Shroud of Turin” blimp with a cross on the tail = The Shroud of Turin: a (f)airy tale on the Cross)

  21. April 29, 2013 at 2:37 am

    And now for something completely different (relax – it’s from a mere ‘chemist’, so can be instantly dismissed). It was executed in 2005. That was the year that Pope Benedict XVI, a Bavarian German, assumed office. The artist may have been aware of that Pope’s interest and prior involvement in the Shroud, and had attempted to link it with international politics.

    The blimp is prevented from taking off, being confined, nay trapped, within a hangar. The latter is cathedral like in its general proportions, but is lined with dollar bills. Is it American money that is preventing an incoming German Pope’s pride and joy from truly taking off, preventing a renaissance of the RC Church?

    I leave it to others to make tendentious connections between mighty US dollar and the Shroud, though no doubt the conspiracy theorists will not be slow to suggest that the result of the radiocarbon dating had been “paid for” by Stateside WASPs…

    • April 29, 2013 at 4:55 am

      PS: it’s of course a Balkenkreuz on the blimp’s tail fin, , symbol of the WW2 Wehrmacht. The artist sensibly avoided a more potent symbol of that era in German history….

  22. Max Patrick Hamon
    April 29, 2013 at 6:47 am

    To Colin Berry re the word Hangar: the cryptographic fact is it plays with the Aramaic word Naggar, meaning “Builder” (i.e. “wood and stone cutter”) in connection with Yeshua’s trade; Yeshua Ha Notsry, short for Natsory (Judean Hebrew), “Jesus the Nazorean/Nazarean” in English.

    Re Daniel Milberg’s “US image alchemy”, the latter can be deciphered as a non-intended/intended pun on the Arabic al-qawmiyya, ‘nationalism”, Arabic Al-Qyama, “Resurrection” and Aramaic Qyama, ‘Resurrection” in subliminal reference to Al-Qaida and the “9.11 trauma” (word play on the Aramaic Toma, “Twin” as in the phrase “Twin Towers” and image play with two dollar bank notes featuring two portraits of American leaders as if they were twins). The blimp actually is about to pierce (with its red nose) one side of the hangar as a digital image substitute for the Turin Shroud wound side (re Thomas’s incredulity).

    Besides “The Balloon Hoax”, another of Poe’s stories is here to be used as a deciphering key: “The Fall of the (Free Mason/brick layer) House of Usher” as the blimp is about to come out/usher out; see the red-car(pet)mac/tarmac, apocope de tarmacadam. Now “mac adam” literally means “son of man” in subliminal reference once more to Yeshua Ha-Nostry/”Jesus the Nazorean”.

    Thus the image can be described as Daniel Milberg’s “Fall of the Hangar of Usher” as the latter, not unlike a money box/hoax, made half of cards half of “greens” showing two Free Masons faces, is doomed to collapse as “The Shroud of Turin” takes off from the red carpetmac/tarmacadam..

    Reminder here: The Hebrew name Daniyyel (“Daniel”) means “God is my judge” and is the name of a Hebrew prophet.

    The Hangar of cards and two dollar bank notes featuring two Free Masons’ portraits visually plays with the Keramion/Mandylion in the Sakli Kilise, or HIDDEN Church…

    • April 30, 2013 at 1:21 am

      “… re the word Hangar: the cryptographic fact is it plays with the Aramaic word Naggar, meaning “Builder” (i.e. “wood and stone cutter”) in connection with Yeshua’s trade; Yeshua Ha Notsry, short for Natsory (Judean Hebrew), “Jesus the Nazorean/Nazarean” in English.”

      What we see here is a spectacular conflation of visual imagery and verbal/written expression. When it’s impossible to introduce a term like “hangar”into a thread without its etymology being dissected, and parallels drawn with an Aramaic word from a totally different context and era of history, you know that the semantic gymnast in question has become hopelessly trapped within a mental gymnasium entirely of his own making, one that is totally divorced from the real world.

        Such a critic from a leech worshipper (leech as your sole chemical reality to account for the Turin Shroud blood!), is quite laughable in terms of archaeological blood pattern analysis.

        Besides and most obviously you are totally ignorant of “the language of the birds” as cryptographic device.
        The use of Aramaic here as a cryptological language is in keeping with the theme as many (unlike you) think the Shroud of Turin is probably Yeshua’s (Yeshua spoke Aramaic and was a naggar, “a wood and stone cutter”, just in case you ignore it).

        Last but not least, I was just trying to Maxrelax here and have some serious fun. On this one , I do suspect you to be nothing but a wet blanket.

    Any kind of play on words, or allusions that rely heavily on words, would restrict appreciation of the art to a single language only. Why would an artist, least of all one employing digital techniques that are ideally suited to transmission via the world wide web, choose to paint (or pixellate) himself into a corner, or risk being seen as anglocentric, obscure and impenetrable?

    Get real. Daniel Milberg’s art is international – as are the themes that he selects for our attention. If he exercised the kind of preciousness and self-indulgence that you do on this site, he would quickly find himself a nonentity – and rightly so.

    Daniel Milberg is a radical anti-radicalist (this not a pun).

  36. Max Patrick Hamon
    April 29, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    Daniel Milberg wrote of himself:

    “Little is known for certain about the self-described “photo-surrealistic” artist who calls himself “Daniel Milberg”.
    Born in Belgium (or Luxembourg) in 1899 (or 1897), he apparently fled the Balkans (perhaps the Urals) sometime after World War I (or II) to avoid questioning by the French Sûreté (and/or Scotland Yard) about his involvement in the “XYZ Affair” (or possibly the “Zimmerman Telegram” controversy).
    His books are quite rare and are owned primarily by serious collectors and high school classmates.” This is what I would call a surrealistic consciousness of language for a “pixellator”.

    Now CB the chemic wants us to believe Milberg is not language conscious of his art and is not playing with language…

    I even suspect Milberg to visually word-image play on the very word BLIMP in connection with an erected-phallus-shaped like airship as BLIMP > LIMP: “From Middle English *limp, *lemp, from Old English *lemp (found only in compound lemphealt (“limping”), from Proto-Germanic *lempanan (“to hang down”), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)lemb-, *(s)lembʰ- (“to hang loosely, hang limply”). Cognate with German lampecht (“flaccid, limp”), Icelandic lempinn, lempiligur (“pliable, gentle”). See above.
    [edit]Adjective
    limp (comparative limper, superlative limpest)
    flaccid; flabby, as flesh.
    lacking stiffness; flimsy; as, a limp cravat.

Now it is well known, for some people, holding or possessing a $2 bill is considered to be bad luck. Hence, as a Hindenburg substitute, the Shroud Of Turin is doomed to collapse. The blimp is not at all “prevented from taking off, being confined, nay trapped, within a hangar” as CB mistakingly implied. Besides, CB’s additional comment “Is it American money that is preventing an incoming German Pope’s pride and joy from truly taking off, preventing a renaissance of the RC Church?” is totally off target even compared to my most stretched pun re the Hangar/de Naggar (Aram.), “the Builder” (who was “hanged” to the cross)”.

    • April 30, 2013 at 3:12 pm

      Any interpretation that attempts to account for visual information in the picture – the date of execution (2005), the WW2 military insignia, the ceiling above the blimp etc etc – whether correctly reading the artist’s cues or not, is legitimate speculation. What you have been doing here is not legitimate speculation, since you are attempting to impose multiple layers of word associations that have no relevance in digital art.

      You would be well advised to put Japanese digital art into your search engine, and spend an hour or two interpreting the rich imagery you will see there, where any attempt to invoke word associations is impossible because you won’t know the Japanese characters that represent the components of the image, and even if you did, they do not lend themselves to your kind of misguided attempt to ‘cryptoanalyze’.

      Merhinks you have rather shot yourself in the foot today, through demonstrating that your cryptoanalyzing tendency is not rooted in an appreciation of early Western art – coded or otherwise – denied to us ordinary mortals, but to a particular turn of mind that sees all visual imagery as a proxy for spoken or written language. It is not. Visual imagery is free-standing, unless you have compelling evidence to the contrary. If you are so certain you are right, then go back to Daniel Milberg’s site where you were earlier – and ask him to state whether your approach is correct or not…

  54. Max Patrick Hamon
    April 30, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    You keep ignoring/overlooking one very crucial fact: even the artist himself is not totally aware of all the elements that are embedded within his own work of art (there is often more than meet the eyes) all the more so when it comes to a surrealistic (digital) collage as it tends to interplays with both personal and collective unconsciousness + subconsciousness. These are dimensions that totally escape your intellectual scope.

    CB, Re the Balkenkreuz: Etymologically speaking, the word balken means “beam cross”. In conjunction with The Shroud Of Turin, it can refer at one and the same time to:
    – a building structure (that of the 2 dollar bill walled hangar featuring a Freemason/bricklayer/builder) (Milberg the digital “Bilder”‘s bad luck built-in life)
    – Yeshua as a carpenter/builder/”naggar” hanged to a cross beam (Milberg “bearing” his cross in life)
    – balken is “not a beam of light” (that to account for Yeshua’s Resurrection) (Milberg’s yearning for his own coming out/resu-erection/resurrection both as “life-crucified” man and G.od like artist)

    Milberg seem to suffer from a “blimpolar” messiah complex.

      Milberg seem to suffer from a double bind: “to be limp and erected” at one and the same time.

    CB, when you wrote: “it’s of course a Balkenkreuz on the blimp’s tail fin, , symbol of the WW2 Wehrmacht. The artist sensibly avoided a more potent symbol of that era in German history….” at face value you were correct yet totally missed the Hinddeniceberg meaning of the Shroud Of Turin under the surface.

    Note: The heraldic expression Balkenkreuz as a heraldic expression refers to a straight/Greek cross. However the term “Balkan” is generally believed to come from Turkish balkan, meaning “a chain of wooded mountains”.Alternately, the name may have derived from the Persian bālkāneh or bālākhāna, meaning “high, above, or proud HOUSE,” which also could subliminally refer to “The Fall of the House of USher” into the dark waters of the LAKE.as the Hindenburg disaster took place at LAKEhurst, a toponym that contains the very letters E.h.u.r.s and spell ushEr/USHER.

    Note 2: Milberg wrote (see his surrealistic biography): “Born in Belgium (or Luxembourg) in 1899 (or 1897), he apparently fled the BALKANS (perhaps the Urals) sometime after World War I (or II) to avoid questioning….”

  71. Max Patrick Hamon

    Fleeing his BA(d) L(uc)K (built-i)N life, that is.

  72. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 1, 2013 at 11:17 am

    We have a new double bound situation here: how can Milberg flee his soul and flesh in-built/”bild” poesque doom?

    May 1, 2013 at 11:25 am

    Through digital “photo-surrealistic” (He)Art?

  74. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 1, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    The only snag here is what should be a morale-booster (the Blakenkreuze as G.ott mit UnS//In G.od We Trust) is ALSO here a depression-booster (BA(d) L(uc)K (built-i)N life CROSS as a substitute for the Nazi Swastika).

    Reminder 2: The gas leak caused the pressure baseline to fall//due to a lack of oxygen, brain function becomes more depressed

  82. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 2, 2013 at 7:30 am

    BTW: (FLY) THE SHROUD OF TURIN (AND BE SAVED), is the 1st degree solution to the riddle (there are many additional structural skeleton keys to disclose the image at conscious, unconscious and subconscious levels).

  83. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 2, 2013 at 7:31 am

    Typo: before you really can disclose the whole image contents

  84. Max Patrick Hamon

    TO CB: The “knots” are not (really) mine but from Milberg’s most tortured mind.

  85. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 2, 2013 at 7:46 am

    Reminder: my cryptological approach was deliberately surrealistic (half for fun half serious) as the artist is a photo-surrealistic artist. I opted to decode the image using “the langage of the birds” as the image view point is not only surrealistic in se but seen from the “Bilder” (or Imagist)’s bird’s eye view.

  86. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 2, 2013 at 7:55 am

    CB did seem a little more inspired (but not that much) when passing comments on my comments rather than on the image.

    Here is British English native speaker Colin Berry’s Level I interpretation for deaf to digital art: “It was executed in 2005. That was the year that Pope Benedict XVI, a Bavarian German, assumed office. The artist may have been aware of that Pope’s interest and prior involvement in the Shroud, and had attempted to link it with international politics.
    The blimp is prevented from taking off, being confined, nay trapped, within a hangar. The latter is cathedral like in its general proportions, but is lined with dollar bills. Is it American money that is preventing an incoming German Pope’s pride and joy from truly taking off, preventing a renaissance of the RC Church?” So insightful for a 13-14 year’s old schoolboy, I am speechless.

    Breaking news: I see that Daniel Milberg has deleted all of MPH’s theorizing from his blimp posting. So much for the misguided (some might say bizarre) attempts to interpret digital art via increasingly desperate English-language word-association… Manic is the word that springs to mind…

  95. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 3, 2013 at 5:21 am

    To Colin Berry THE MICHEYMIST,

    yourself have deleted most of my postings on your own blog (this is no proof AT ALL I was wrong).

    Daniel Porter hasn’t (even if at times if might have wished so). This no proof AT ALL I was right.

    On Daniel Milberg’s blog every comments I passed was/i still labelled “Your comment is awaiting moderation”. DanDark (Milberg) may well be in “Denial” or “afraid” and he is free to be so given his tortured mind of his (as life crucified rescapé from the Milberg Genealogical Disaster, you know “The House of Usher” complex + messiah complex).

    As far as I can read you, CB as a Michkeymist (mostly if not only working from his observation of biased Turin Shroud photographs), you are a very poor archaeological bloodsatin amateur analyst + a most insightless image analyst amateur whether it comes to medieval or modern art images + a very poor Templar archaeologist amateur, but these are not breaking news… Micheymist and Impostroll are the words that does spring to mind.

    Just tell King Salomon (and many more wise men) who did use “the language of the bird” to close or disclose secrets, they were manics…

  97. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 3, 2013 at 5:46 am

    Besides being blind deaf to modern art hidden message (whether it is conscious, unonscious or subconscious), you are just displaying a flabbergasting ignorance of cryptotology when you wrote: “On thing is for certain: an artist like Daniel Milberg would NEVER incorporate wordplay into his visual medium.”

    Methinks, many look but few see and even fewer hear when it comes to archaeological images and ar tworks. This is where archaeocryptology may come in.

    The true fact is Milberg not unlike Poe suffers/suffered from depression, and they channeled that into their work.

  105. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 3, 2013 at 7:48 am

    Roderick is a manic depressive in “The Fall of the House of Usher,”. Milberg too is a manic depressive in “The House/Hangar/(Blood)Shed of The Shroud Of Turin”

  106. Max Patrick Hamon

    Milberg manic depressive does show in his un/sub-conscious wordimage plays.

    • May 3, 2013 at 8:38 am

      Daniel Milberg must be hugely grateful to have someone here who is capable of interpreting what was in his unconscious or subconscious mind when he threw together his digital images.

  108. Max Patrick Hamon
    May 3, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    The true fact is Dan (Porter not Milberg) asked for “ANY clues to what Daniel Milberg (was) trying to tell us, ANY interpretations). Do hope now he has some clues and some food for thought… There is more than meet the eyes in the “Mil-ice-berg image” whether or not Colin the Mickeymist like it or not.

    Addendum: The Shroud= ..e Shr.u. = uSher (built-in anagram) = Usher
    The Shroud=…e Sh.ou. = houSe ( built-in anagram) = House

    BTW I am a professional cryptologist.

  109. Max Patrick Hamon

    Re one of his surrealistic biography: the fact is it is ciphered: e.g. “Born in Belgium (or Luxembourg) in 1899 (or 1897)” = 1+8+9+9 = 27 1+8+9+7 =25
    25=27 = 52, Now Milberg was born in 1952…

    May 3, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    POE tried to marry PrOvidencE POEt Sarah Helen Whitman. The blimp image is seen through the eye of (all seeing) PrOvidencE and at “language of the birds” view/hearig (a cryptographic method).

  123. Max Patrick Hamon
