This 6000 year old seal depicts Sumerian gods (The Anunnaki) teaching the Sumerians about the solar system. The Sumerians where the first known civilization to accurately locate each planet in the solar system. Not only did they accurately list the planets in the correct order but also described what color each planet was and that they orbited the sun. They also described another planet (Nibiru) which was the home planet of there gods, which had an oblong orbit around our sun. Nibiru is believed to be orbiting our solar systems sister star, which orbits our star every 3600 years.

Samantha Keely Smith
Samantha Keely Smith‘s artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and the tidal sweep of our emotional life, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. She attempts to map the place where these worlds intersect.The translucent layers of paint, contrasting soft ethereal brushwork and harder edged sweeping gestures, echo this divergence and depict a timeless place that hovers between dream and reality in a way that is simultaneously alluring and menacing. The work exhibits the struggle between and among the variety of human impulses: impulses that are as necessary as they are contradictory, and which therefore constantly undermine our psychic and social coherence even as they endow us with vitality, soul, and life.
