Here is Les Bergere d'Arcadie by Nicolas Poussin

Alluded to in the Parchment

Interesting how the principle light source in Poussin's 'Les Bergere d'Arcadie' painting just happens to coincide with the line pointed at by this red haired Shepherd whose cloak was painted in 'Rose Madder'. It's a Golden Dawn but there's a shadow on the tomb.

Whole websites and books have been made to debunk any significance to Landscape Geometry

"The Lady Doth Protest Too Much Methinks" - Hamlet

Here is a quote from Arch-Debunker Paul Smith

"Having visited the spot in 1993, I can categorically state that the landscape at Les Pontils does not match the one depicted in Poussin's painting, and those who make such a claim are seriously wrong - the landscape at Les Pontils situated behind the spot where the tomb once stood features the hills of Grand Bergue, Las Tostonas, Cardaussel and Quirautier; not Bezil Grand or Blanchefort. What is more, this claim is usually made by people who have never visited the area in the first place."

Well since that was written Google earth has given the world the opportunity to see for themselves

Here is the link to Google maps

Click and hold down the right mouse button and move the small orange man to the road and face the arrow South west.

You'll see this view

View from the tomb at Les Pontils

Compare this view with the right hand side of Poussin's painting.

Poussin's Les Bergere d' Arcadie 

Compare the right hand side of the painting with the real landscape.

Smith insists that the tomb is not significant and yet a tomb of identical proportions and colour to the one painted by Poussin is overlooked by Rennes le Chateau.

The Tomb is placed 250metres west of the Paris Meridian.

It is important to realise that the measurement of the Metre by  Pierre Méchain was in error

and covered up for almost 200years.

 

*****************

But

Let us look again at Poussin's Tomb in Les Bergere d'Arcadie in more detail

The Red (red garments and red-haired) shepherd points at the line on the tomb not at the phrase

He looks around at the Shepherdess - His Mother

His name is

 ARCAS 

 

The Blue (kneeling) shepherd with the beard points at the phrase 'I too am in Arcadia'

This is Hercules, he was in Arcadia when he hunted the Erymanthian Boar during the twelve labours.

It was in Woods at Erymantus that Arcas (the red shepherd) met his mother who had been transformed into a Bear.

This will become significant later.

Notice the shadow made on the tomb by the Blue (kneeling) Shepherd.

The shadow of a bow on the tomb.

It's a bow.

 In Ovid's metamorphosis Hercules (Greek - Heracles) is given a sword by Hermes and a BOW by Apollo.

Apollo being the Greek Sun God

and we know that Poussin carried a copy of Ovid's Metamorphosis with him at all times.

Apollo's silver bow and arrow represent Heracles' defeat of the serpent Python (or Phython)

Note that the word Pythagoras consists of the Greek word Python and Agora

Agora meaning 'place of'.

Place of the serpent

Now look at the star depiction of the Constellation of Hercules.

Kneeling Hercules, His foot on the head of Draco 

He's kneeling

His foot on the Draco's head 

Like a toiling man, revolves in a form
Nor to what toil he is attached:
But, simply, Kneeler they call him
Labouring on his knees, like one
Who sinks it seems
And his right foot planted on the twisting Serpent's head.

Manilius - Phenomena
 

The right foot of Heracles (Hercules) on the Earth Serpent head. 

The ground under Poussin's painting of the tomb has a snake like opening.

The right foot of Hercules in Poussin's painting is on the Earth Serpent's head.

Note when we are speaking of mythology Dragon, Serpent mean the same thing.

  Wyvern, Woivres are also dragons or serpents, Woëvre being the Celtic name for Dragon.

Saint Dagobert II was murdered in the Foret des Woivres during the winter Solstice in 679CE

The "Labouring One" by Manilius refers to the twelve Labours of Hercules which he performed whilst in Arcadia, hence the reason he points at the phrase

I too am in Arcadia

In the Labours of Hercules his eleventh labour he looks for the APPLES of the Hesperides.

and so the Blue (shepherd) seeks the Apples of the Hesperides

hercules and the apples 

3rd century mosaic showing Hercules stealing the Apples of the Hesperides.

Ursa Minor
Hesperides - Constellations Associated with the Myth. Directly above Libra is the constellation Ursa Minor. Ursa Minor was considered a constellation only after the 6th century BC, at which point it was thought of as a small bear.

Etymology

Hesperides

The name means originating from Hesperos (evening). Hesperos, or Vesper in Latin, is the origin of the name Hesperus, the evening star (i.e. the planet Venus) as well as having a shared root with the English word "west". 

The Nymphs of the Evening

The Hesperides number three, like the other Greek triads, the Moirai. - The Three Graces.

 

"Since the Hesperides themselves are mere symbols of the gifts the apples embody, they cannot be actors in a human drama. Their abstract, interchangeable names are a symptom of their impersonality," Evelyn Harrison has observed. Nevertheless, among the names given to them, though never all at once, are Aegle

("dazzling light"), Arethusa, Erytheia (or Erytheis) and Hesperia (alternatively Hespereia, Hespere, Hespera, Hesperusa or Hesperethoosa). Lipara, Asterope and Chrysothemis are named in a Hesperide scene of the apotheosis of Heracles (romanised to Hercules) on a late fifth-century hydria by the Meidias Painter in London.

They are sometimes called the Western Maidens, the Daughters of Evening or Erythrai, and the Sunset Goddesses", designations all apparently tied to their imagined location in the distant west. Hesperis is appropriately the personification of the evening (as Eos is of the dawn) and the Evening Star is Hesperus. In addition to their tending of the garden, they were said to have taken great pleasure in singing.

They are sometimes portrayed as the evening daughters of Night (Nyx) either alone, or with Darkness (Erebus), in accord with the way Eos in the farthermost east, in Colchis, is the daughter of the titan Hyperion. Or they are listed as the daughters of Atlas, or of Zeus, and either Hesperius or Themis, or Phorcys and Ceto.

Erytheia ("the red one") is one of the Hesperides. The name was applied to an island close to the coast of southern Hispania, which was the site of the original Punic colony of Gades (modern Cadiz). Pliny's Natural History (4.36) records of the island of Gades: "On the side which looks towards Spain, at about 100 paces distance, is another long island, three miles wide, on which the original city of Gades stood. By Ephorus and Philistides it is called Erythia, by Timæus and Silenus Aphrodisias, and by the natives the Isle of Juno." The island was the seat of Geryon, who was overcome by Heracles.

So if the Blue shepherd is the constellation of Hercules

Who is the Red (haired) shepherd?

Well he's looking around at the Shepherdess.

As mentioned earlier Arcas met his mother in the Erymanthus Woods

Arcas became King of Arcadia.

Here is the extract from Ovid's Metamorphosis.

Bk II:496-507 Arcas and Callisto become constellations
And now Arcas grandson of Lycaon had reached his fifteenth year ignorant of parentage. While he was hunting wild animals, while he was finding suitable glades and penning up the Erymanthian groves with woven nets, he came across his mother, who stood still at sight of Arcas and appeared to know him. He shrank back from those unmoving eyes gazing at him so fixedly, uncertain what made him afraid, and when shequickly came nearer he was about to pierce her chest with his lethal spear. All-powerful Jupiter restrained him and in the same moment removed them and the possibility of that wrong, and together, caught up through the void on the winds, he set them in the heavens and made them similar constellations, the Great and Little Bear 

As mentioned at the top of this page The Tomb is 1.36 miles (1 mile 618yards) from the Chateau at ARQUES
Here is the sign as you enter the town of Arques


Image

Here is the road sign of Arques with the Cathar name underneath.

ARCAS

Here the Red (haired) Shepherd we now know is Arcas and here in Poussin's painting he looks around at his Mother Callisto.
The Bear Watcher
Remember that in Ovid's Metamorphosis Callisto is turned into a bear by Jupiter (Zeus)

Arcas is the star Arcturus the name derives from Αρκτουρος (Arktouros) and means "Guardian of the Bear", ultimately from αρκτος (arktos), "bear" + ουρος (ouros), "watcher, guardian"
So
Arcas is the Bear Watcher, he looks around at his mother who is called in the sky Ursa Major the Great (female) Bear.

(Ursus is male)

Arc to Arcturus

See how her arm rests on the shoulder of her son in a similar manner to the stars. Arcturus is a Red Giant Star and achieved fame when its light was used to open the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. Arcturus was used by Pierre Méchain in his measurements for the Metre.

Arcturus is in the same interstellar cloud as our own Solar system, this interstellar cloud is the remnants of a Supernova that exploded as recently as 3million years ago in the vicinity of our sun. Arcturus is notable for its high proper motion, larger than any first magnitude star in the stellar neighborhood other than α Centauri. It is moving rapidly (122 km/s) relative to the solar system, and is now almost at its closest point to the Sun.  Which means it has moved (relative to other stars) 860 million million miles (about 9 million AU) since Poussin's time. Arcturus is thought to be an old disk star, and appears to be moving with a group of 52 other such stars, known as the Arcturus stream

In Poussin's day Arcturus was probably closer to the Little Bear than to Böötes
.

 
ARCAS the Red Haired shepherd (Böötes means sheep herder)

Notice he has his foot on a Mound


Foot of Rock
This is Mons Menalus (on the right the star representation)

Bootes foot on Mons Maenalus

Mons Menalus is a mountain in Arcadia in modern Greece.

The mountain took its name from a character in Greek mythology. Maenalus was said by some mythologists to have been the eldest son of Lycaon, king of Arcadia; this would have made Maenalus brother of Callisto and hence uncle of her son Arcas, whom the constellation Boötes represents. Others, though, say he was actually the son of Arcas and hence the grandson of Callisto. Either way, Maenalus gave his name to the mountain in Arcadia and to the city of Maenalon which he founded. Its modern name is Mainalos.

"Mons Maenalus was sacred to the god Pan who frequented it. Ovid in his Metamorphoses said that Mons Maenalus bristled with the lairs of wild beasts and was a favourite hunting ground of Diana and her entourage, including Callisto. In saying this, Ovid clearly rejects the story that Maenalus was Callisto’s grandson, as the mountain would not yet have got its name."
- Ian Ridpath

Poussin carried a copy of Ovid's Metamorphosis around on his person 24/7.

The Tomb at Les Pontils


Here is the tomb at Les Pontils before it was destroyed by the land owner.
You can see the step that Arcas has his left foot on in the painting.

It is placed 250 metres from the Paris Meridian and 1 mile 618yards from the Chateau of Arques.

 Rose Line

The Meridian is marked by the Couiza to Arques road.

In the Poussin painting above the Meridian line pointed to by ARCAS, the Red Shepherd, is a bright piece of sky behind the mountain of the Sun Temple

Montségur

 
Modified Montsegur
This is Solar Temple Montségur
A note about the painting technique of Nicolas Poussin
Poussin is known to meticulously go over his paintings with his thumb to remove brush strokes
The top (sky) portion of Les Bergere d'Arcadie has brush strokes meaning that the top portion of the painting is likely to have been tampered with.
Was this to later disguise the fact that Poussin had painted the Solar Temple at Montségur in his painting?
Considered a place of heresy in Poussin's time.

See Poussin   

*********************
But Poussin painted earlier painting featuring a tomb and the Arcadia theme.

Man bearing pitcher of water.

In a previous version in the Arcadia theme (now at Chatsworth House close to Shugborough Hall) we have two shepherds and a shepherdess at a tomb bearing the phrase:
ET IN ARCADIA EGO
And remember the Parchment code said Poussin and TENIERS hold the key.

Once again one bearded shepherd points at the phrase on the tomb. Significantly the Shepherdess (left) is lifting her skirt and showing her thigh.

Thigh in the sky - Robert Bauval
From Robert Bauval's website concerning the Thigh in the sky

Callisto (Ursa Major) showing her thigh
Callisto (Ursa Major) deliberately showing her thigh in Poussin's painting.
 

As we know the figures in the painting are representing star constellations

Left to right we have the constellations of

Ursa Major

You will notice that the shepherdess is deliberately showing her thigh, that is because Poussin is representing her as Ursa Major.

"the 'Thigh in the sky' is in fact the constellation of Ursa Major" - Robert Bauval

Next

Böötes

ARCAS the Bear Watcher' he looks around at his mother who was turned into a bear by Zeus and flung into the sky.  

Then

LUKE 22

Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the Passover must be killed.

And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat.

And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?

12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

But what of the area around the town of Arques?
Well firstly it is in Cathar Country.


The whole area around this part of the Languedoc-Roussillon was the former state of Septimania.
It was known by the Romans as Gallia Narbonensis
A reference to the city of Narbonne which had previously been the site of a pre-Roman Iron Age Fort.
Narbo in the map below.

The Volkes Tectosages and the Languedoc
 
In Otto Rahn’s writings there is an interesting old legend that he recounts in "Crusade against the Grail (Kreuzzug gegen Gral)". He writes of an ancient lake "entre Montségur et la cime du Thabor". It is a lake of dark (green) waters surrounded by sheer cliff walls. He calls it the Lake of the Trouts[sic] or the Lake of Sins. It is situated between the mountain of Saint Bartholomew (opposite Montségur) and the Pic de Soularac (Saint Bartholomew's twin summit). It is in this lake where legend has it the druids threw gold, silver and precious stones at a time long before Jesus. This treasure was said to be the fabled treasure of the Temple of Delphi. In Rahn’s book he speaks to an Ariegois local and asks him why if there are no Trout in the lake then why is it called Etang des Truites. The local tells him that the lake is cursed and one should not throw stones into the water. They said that the people were dying en masse and the Druids told them to throw their gold and silver into the lake as tribute to the powers of the underworld. In stone wheeled carts they transported their riches to the lake and threw it in. The Druids then drew a magic circle around the lake, all the fish died and the green waters turned black and from that moment the people were cured of their terrible affliction. They said that all of the gold and silver will belong to those who can break the magic circle but as soon as they touch the gold they will die of the same affliction that killed so many people before.

We are told by Strabo that, Brennus, the Celtic chief who died in 279 BCE, led two hundred thousand soldiers into Greece and eventually defeated the assembled Greeks at Thermopylae after being first repulsed. He then supposedly went on to raid the treasure of Delphi however on the point of victory at Parnassus, a series of natural calamities: lightning storms, falling rocks, hail stones and heavy snow assailed the Brennus' troops causing many deaths to the besiegers. The Oracle told the townsfolk of Delphi that Apollo would not allow them to suffer any distress and the loss of their treasure. Brennus himself was wounded and the Celts fell back, killing their own wounded as they retreated. The retreating Celtic army suffered a further defeat by the Thessalians and the Malians at Spercheius. The tribe commanded by Brennus was thought to have been from the Celtic tribe Prausi who were from Pannonia which is now Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Bosnia Herzegovina. On their retreat the remaining Celts settled on Hellespont around Byzantium and founded the kingdom of Galatia and eventually inhabited. However, this popular historian Strabo relates the story that the Celts were finally victorious at Parnassus and supposedly did steal at least part of the Delphi treasure which was eventually brought to Tolosa (Toulouse) by the Celtic tribe called the Tectosages who were said to have been part of Brennus’ invading army, but because of the nature of the procurement of the booty at such heavy cost it was considered cursed and disposed of. It is this treasure that was thrown into the lakes described by Wolfram von Eschenbach as the Grail Lakes. A stream from these two lakes flows past Montségur and according to Wolfram Von Eschenbach these are the lakes of the Grail.

Is this lake full of cursed treasure?
Etang du Truites

One remembers of course that the Galatians have a whole chapter dedicated to them in the Epistles of Paul from the New Testament but also significant is the movement possibly the brainchild of George Monti and continued into fruition by Pierre Plantard which he called Alpha Galates – The First Galatians. These Celts who settled in Galatia became the Gauls and these people were referred to by Francis Bacon as Gallo-Graeci. The Galatians were comprised thus:

 The Tolistboboii, on the west: Pessinus was their chief town.
The Tectosages, in the centre: chief town Ancyra (Ankara)
The Trocmi, in the east around their town Tavium

Each tribal territory was divided into four cantons or tetrarchies, each tetrarchs had under him a judge and a general. The Tectosages formed part of Galatia that included an area that is later called Ancyra which is now modern day Ankara. The name Tolistbo-boii has given its name to the city of Toulouse, the Boii being a well known Celtic tribe and the Tectosages are confirmed as being in the area comprising Rennes le Chateau by Julius Caesar. These Tectosages had a sacred ground prepared for council meetings twenty miles south of Ancyra which they called Drynemeton the Fane (temple) of the Oaks.
After many battles Galatia, in Asia Minor was finally subdued, around 25BCE, and incorporated into the Roman Empire of Octavian Augustus. However there remained a temple to the Phrygian Goddess Men called the Monumentum Ancyraum and the Galatians followed a Polytheistic religion long into the Christian era.

During his second missionary journey the Apostle Paul from Tarsus, accompanied by Silas and Timothy visited the region of Galatia and became ill and as a consequence stayed with these Galatians a long time. In Acts 18:23 and Acts 14:8-23 the bible says the he again went to Galatia. On this second occasion initially the people worshipped him and Barnabas as Gods calling them Hermes and Zeus after he had healed a man. However things changed and he was eventually stoned by the crowd and left for dead. At this time the Galatians were still speaking their Celtic language and 300 years later Saint Jerome commented that the Galatians were still speaking this same language in Ancyra and far to the west in Trier in what is now the German Rhineland. The city of Nicea is on the border of Galatia and Phrygia and this is the place where the famous first and seventh ecumenical councils, which laid out the structure of the Christian faith, took place. Nicea was the capital of the Byzantine Empire during the period from 1204 until 1261 until the city of Constantinople was recaptured.
The statutes of the Alpha Galates are dated December 27, 1937, however they were only registered some five years later in 1942. Alpha Galates was described as a right wing publication and it was forbidden for any Jews or freemasons to enter this group. The official purpose was to provide aid for young people who had suffered under the German occupation of World War One, but it also described itself as being led by articles of chivalry and French patriotic ideals through mutual support and group activities.

It is clear that Alpha Galates was the forerunner of the Priory of Sion and was distinctly pro-Nazi. In 1939 Plantard headed a Catholic youth group which organised retreats in Brittany for teenagers in a similar fashion to the Bavarian youth camps in Nazi Germany. On December 16th 1940 Plantard wrote to Marshal Petain, head of the Vichy Government in France denouncing a vast Jewish-Masonic plot, but the only attention he received was various entries into police files. In 1941 Plantard applied to begin an organisation called the French National Renewal but was denied official permission in September 1941. The first official publication in their Journal Vaincre came in September 1944 at a time when France was being liberated from the Nazis; however records say it had been published earlier in 1942. This earlier publication was full of anti-Semitic and pro-Vichy articles but had some superficial esoteric articles based on Celtic traditions and chivalry. Alpha Galates only produced six copies of Vaincre before it ceased publication and it earned Plantard some notoriety particularly with the French police. As late as February 1945 Alpha Galates was still being investigated by the police and particularly its membership but outwardly concluded that it had no serious purpose. One prominent person drawn into Alpha Galates was Robert Amadou who believed it to be a genuine esoteric group but later revealed that its true purpose was political. Amadou, a Freemason and Martinist, has refused to discuss Alpha Galates and says that he has no involvement in politics either before or since. In 1947 Pierre Plantard filed yet more legal papers in order to create another organization, ostensibly for historical research, called the Latin Academy and placed his mother as head of the group. However this group was again an organisation with similar beliefs and purposes as Alpha Galates. It was shortly after this that Pierre Plantard began promoting himself in Catholic circles as the Merovingian pretender to the French throne and particularly in the seminary of the church of St Sulpice in Paris. He later abandoned this group in order to start the Priory of Sion in 1956.


So it seems that this part of Languedoc-Roussillon was a former Celtic community and indeed was described as still practicing Celtic pagan rituals in the early part of the 20th Century.

And this leads one to look at the Landscape geometry associated with the movements of the Sun that are present in the area.
