"Prophecy Face" by Michael Balabasz http://www.fragmentedart.com/

This is a Fragment of a 4 ft face I made previously. I take sections of it to use as a billboard to project peoples beliefs or events and highlight the issues involved. A popular notion was the Mayan calendar predicted an apocalypse on Dec 21, 2012. So I have depicted various end of time scenarios on Prophecy Face to highlight the issue which some people have connected to Biblical prophecy and other end of time
predictions. Here I record the event in a semi-perminent state. Or at least one that will not melt till around 3000 degrees F. Mayanist scholars disagree with this apocalyptic theory, and point to the Mayan tradition of "world ages" that last about 5,125 years. The Mayans believe the Fourth age ended on 12/21/12 and scholars suggest they would have had a great celebration as a Fifth age began. There is also evidence this age may include some environmental transformation and spiritual enlightenment. Additionally many believe Mayan culture has been hijacked for profit as with things like the Da Vinci Code novel or when hidden messages were suggested in Biblical text, Tora Code. The warping of actual historical references seems, they say, to be a product of a disconnected society that only adds to New Age Beliefs in counter-culture. However as I read the news of 2012 I see Wild fires, floods, and factual data of scientific changes and I wonder if as all prophecies seem to have a twist to the riddle of their meaning. The Mayan's have marked humanity entering into an era where the effects of our hand on the Earth come back to bite us? In fact hurricane Sandy set off new claims of Global Warming that mark a point where A majority of scientists and people agree that G/W is in fact happening!
Additionally the spiritual enlightenment prophesied may be the religious extremist terrorist movement and biblical apocalyptic fears expressed about current events in the Middle East and events across the world seem to imply a gravitation toward WWIII.
