Erik's Masonic Journey

Mon, 22 Jul 2002

This weekend we began painting the ceiling of our lodge room. Our building is just a few years old, having been erected in 1999. It is still very plain and undecorated and there has been a lot of pressure from the lodge to do something impressive with the lodge room. Anyhow, finally a few of us got together and started planning a massive series of murals for the ceiling and walls of the lodge, which we started implementing.

Our first phase is to paint the starry canopy on the uppermost part of the ceiling. I was somehow put in charge of laying out a star chart to be placed there, and chose to use Leo as the center constellation, even though it should be on the southern horizon. It will be the focal point of the starry canopy. We've been trying to figure out what we're going to do with the rest of the ceiling as we make our way down, and there are a lot of ideas. I thought I'd start jotting down some of them and begin trying to put together something coherent.

Here are some websites I found detailing other Masonic murals. Please explore them, and if you can come up with any good mural ideas that you wish you had in your lodge, then drop me a line! We could use some more creative juice coming our way.
