Halos, horns & human neurology

The halo is an ancient symbol still familiar today. A halo around an image of the sun, a light bulb or a candle denotes warmth, light and/or power. A halo around someone’s head traditionally symbolizes their great virtue, love, wisdom and/or power. Such individuals are considered en-light-ened. Haloed figures are abundant in cave art.

Also seen frequently in ancient art are horned bulls and horned people.

What do horns represent? Michelangelo’s famous horned statue of Moses (pictured in the right-hand column) is a symbolic portrayal that has art historians guessing.

Keep in mind that symbolism expresses an invisible or unseen aspect by providing a visible counterpart in nature.

Kautz found that in many ancient texts the unseen human mid-brain was known as the Golden Bull or Sacred Bull, and was considered the source of exceptional vision, wisdom and/or power.

Sacred Bull? Bulls have horns and many traditional cultures revere horned members of the cattle family such as cows, bulls, reindeer and buffalo.

Why were horned animals considered golden or sacred? What’s the connection between horns and vision, wisdom and/or power?

Karola Kautz resolved the puzzling symbolism of horns in ancient art when she discovered the image of a horned bull’s head in a diagram of the human mid-brain. (See: The Key to Ancient Records, Chapter 3, page 44, Illustration #13.) This explained why the ancients called the mid-brain the Sacred Bull.

Further investigation verified that horns in prehistoric art were a symbol of the extraordinary inner — invisible — qualities highly esteemed by our ancient ancestors.
