Urho Kekkonen Memorial


Example of public hidden in plain sight symbolism from Helsinki, Finland: Urho Kekkonen Memorial, also known as Spring/UKK Monument.

Helsinki City Artmuseum introduction:
"Urho Kaleva Kekkonen (1900-86), UKK, was elected President of the Republic of Finland in 1956, and held the office continuously until his resignation in 1981. President Kekkonen died in 1986. The monument was unveiled on the centenary of President Kekkonen’s birth on September 3, 2000 by the present Finnish President, Tarja Halonen.
A competition was organized in 1997 for a monument commemorating Kekkonen. The first prize was awarded to sculptor Pekka Jylhä’s entry, and he was commissioned to create the work. In Jylhä’s words, his Spring is based: "on the emotions one goes through when standing on top of a high hill, on a sea shore or at a spring in the forest. One feels the presence of a higher being, of a force that makes you feel safe and whole."
The monument is located in the Hakasalmi Park next to Finlandia Hall. It consists of a drop-shaped spring, glistening water and four bronze hands. The President’s name and the years of his birth and death (1900 and 1986) have been written on the rock in the monument's background. The spring is a stainless steel pool and it is illuminated from below. It has a surface area of over 60 m2 and its maximum depth is roughly 1 metre. To prevent the water from freezing in winter, it is circulated constantly and heated. There are four bronze hands set on top of 8-metre-high posts just behind the pool. Jylhä explains that Kekkonen was a man who used his hands to express himself and help him think matters through. He always wrote by hand, including his legendary letters "From My Mill". "

President Kekkonen was famous of his many letters to many people starting with the words "Dear Brother". Even though this is a well known masonic greeting, the official history of president Kekkonen says nothing about his connections to the masonic brotherhoods. It is very typical in Finland, that politicians are "closet masons", and the history books never mention anything about that.

Here is Kekkonen with the masonic hand sign Hidden hand:

If there is a monument for a famous Freemason, there is very high probability for esoteric symbolism. In this case, the first thing to catch one's eye are the hands on top of the 8-meter-high posts.

Number 8 is the number of the sun. The hands on top of the posts refer to the Cult of Aton of "the Elite". In ancient Egypt the sun god Aton was depicted as a solar disc with sun rays. These sun rays had blessing hands.

Cult of Aton - part 6: The eagle


One of the most common symbols of "the Elite" is the eagle. Just like the lion, the olive branch and so many other symbols, its origins are in the birth place of the Cult of Aton - ancient Egypt. (Recommended to read first: Akhenaton and the Hyksos kings)

The eagle is a very common motif in national emblems, coats of arms, company logos and most of all masonic symbolism. Sometimes the eagle has one head, sometimes two.

Some examples:

German coats of arms


Russian double-headed eagle

In ancient Egypt. the eagle was a divine symbol associated with many deities. Since the royals were the representatives of the gods, it became a royal symbol. The origins of the eagle in Egypt goes to Nekhbet - the vulture goddess. She was one the oldest goddesses in Egypt, from predynastic period. After her, many later deities adopted the eagle motif. In later times she became the goddess Nephthys.

In ancient Greece, the eagle was also associated to deities. The king god Zeus was depicted with the eagle and in some myths he was able to transform into an eagle.

In masonry the eagle has two heads. They represent the autocratic and theocratic modes of control of "the Elite". Church and state. Just like the crown and cross in Templar symbolism.


Masonic double-headed eagle


One eagle having two heads also represent conflict control. The powerful masonic brotherhoods have always played their power games behind the scenes so that the public is fooled to believe there are two opposite sides against each other. The truth is, that many times this is nothing more than orchestrated theater with one secret power behind both parties. This is how the illusion of choice or democracy is created.

Do you think the two party system in the US has anything to with democracy? Do you think it makes any difference which party wins the elections? When Obama was elected, he promised change. Did he deliver that? When Trump was elected, he promised change. Has he delivered that? Has he "drained the swamp" or quit the endless american wars? Maybe it's too early to say, but I wouldn't hold my breath.





The double-headed eagle is a very old motif. Probably many thousands of years old. In the context of the Cult of Aton, the origins go to the great hero of the Cult of Aton - Roman emperor Constantine.

Constantine was the creator of the institutional Christianity, which is nothing more than re-branded atonism and solar worship, with lots of elements from older pagan religions. His emblem was the double-headed eagle, because he was able to unite the two Roman empires (east and west) back into one single empire. He moved the capital into Constantinople, the capital of Byzantion, which adopted the double-headed eagle as their emblem.

Without Constantine and his religious reforms it would have been much harder for the Cult of Aton to obtain the power it has today. Therefore Constantine is almost as important hero to "the Elite" as pharaoh Akhenaton.

According to 33. degree Freemason Manly Palmer Hall, in masonry the eagle is also a synonym for phoenix.
"These were the immortals to whom the term 'phoenix' was applied, and their symbol was the mysterious two-headed bird, now called an eagle, a familiar and little understood Masonic emblem." - Manly P. Hall (The Lost Keys of Freemasonry)

He also wrote:
"Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers ... in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences. The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red. The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage. At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color ... The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection ... The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again." - Manly P. Hall (The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy)
