Fraternal symbols on Time covers 12: Holy Grail & Lamen

March 6 1950

One hand holds the cross the other reverently offers the holy chalice...

July 11 1955

Thinly veiled fertility reference. The sun beaming down, the birds (using the actual dove would probably have been to overt) drinking from the cup.

See how the sun in the second Time image is the eye of Aten and the bird (Robin? No, actually they are Cardinals I am told) is the dove above the grail? Get the picture my friends? A perfectly clever representation of the O.T.O lamen pictured above. Wow! We could probably go even further and say that the baseball bat and ball is the male member while the cup is the female.
