In many of my other posts (click) I mention a number 1495 that Da Vinci used to hide clandestine messages contained within the Crucifixion painting by Montorfano, inferring that both Da Vinci and Montorfano had some how collaberated on the work, and that Montorfano was a secret apprentice of Da Vinci.
It wasn't until I was looking at another topic that I realized the importance of the number, with 1495 corresponding to the year of the Hebrew Exodus (1495 B.C.E.)
The question that immediately springs to mind, is why would Da Vinci be interested in such an historically important number? Once answer springs to mind is that his mother is thought to be of Jewish descent, coming to Italy from Russia as a servant, but there could be another, yet, surprising answer, and that he was a member of secret society that was influenced by such event, with the leading prime suspect being Cabala (alternately Kabbala(h) or Qabala(h)).
The Kabbalic Tree of Life seems to be directly related to the 22 Major Arcana archetypes of the Tarot, a known message system used by The Knights Templar, and other secret societies, such as Freemasons, Illuminati and the all powerful Zionists controlled by the Rothschild family, I will try and discuss that in another post later on, suffice to say that opens up a box bigger than Pandora's.....
Before I close this post, I want to quickly put the most important number ever in the history of man, to be into the Book Of Exodus:
Exodus 7:11 - Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts:
Perhaps, Da Vinci took the message literally, art with secrets, after all what a better place to leave a clandestine message then in plain sight???
