Shakespeares chin, in this pencil drawing, represents earth. (Mach 2. Post Orpheus Collision, barren and sterile but now with a moon). The goatee begins as DNA spiral ladders and turns into seaweed. His lower lip is a wave about to bring vegetation to land. His upper lip is a landscape. The cleft is made up of an upside down. Question mark. The mark is made up of a cartoon Brontosaurus face. This pencil drawing asks what happened to the dinosaurs?
The black area above represents a 65 million year old cataclysmic event. A comet struck just north of the Yucatan peninsula creating the gulf of Mexico and the North American delta. Out of the dust 62 million years later, on the ball of the nose of this pencil drawing you will find a skull. Lucy, an Ethiopian archaeological dig set our lineage to about 3.2 million years. She was named after a song that was playing as they uncovered her...Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
Above each of Shakespeares brows lay a comedy and a tragedy masks. The right is comedy and the left tragedy. Under the eyes of this pencil drawing you will find two Shakespeare quotes, both from Hamlet. The time is out of joint. stage left. Stage right is the comedy...Nay, lets go together. The tear is of joy. One of our greatest emotions is the capacity to be so happy we cry. We will learn of his joy a little later.
Shakespeares nose represents human evolution. One evolutionary development signaled our independence, the opposable thumb. At the top of Shakespeares nose you will find a statue of liberty, her crown is the human hand.
Below, we stand in the now, at the crossroads of our existence. Trapped by gravity between time and infinity, both of which intersect at the bridge of Shakespeares nose.
Time, the hour glass, surrounds Shakespeares forehead, siphons at the bridge and fills the bottom, his cheeks and chin. Infinity, in this pencil drawing, surrounds the eyes and intersects at the siphon. The sands of time are running out. Which way do we go?
To the comedy where we show great wisdom, (drawn stage right) his wisdom lines, or do we go the way of the ignorant? (ignor & rant) The tragedy mask, above Shakespeares left brow, is drawn as double masks. One superimposed on the other.
Shakespeare warns us of the concussion effect of a nuclear blast, the last instant of consciousness, and the realization we didnt have the wisdom, we broke the DNA connection with the future.
