Above is a doorway to the 16th-century Padmanabhaswamy Temple, located in Thiruvananthapuram India. The elaborate temple doorway is believed to be a portal guarded by a deity of the Underworld associated with death and Underworld resurrection. The portal door encodes dual serpents, wrapped around the Tree of Life, and dual Fleur de lis emblems.

Above is a page from the Codex Borgia, one of the few remaining pre-Conquest codices that depicts the World Tree”, or “Tree of Life” emerging from the body of a death god in the underworld (life from death), the spectacular tree encoded with Fleur de lis symbols and surmounted by a harpy eagle  (


Above is Carthaginian armor decorated with the Fleur de lis symbol emerging as the Tree of Life from the head of the Phoenician god Ba’al.

Above is another bearded deity, wearing ear flares encoded with an upside down, or inverted Fleur-de-lis symbol,  that is an esoteric reference to underworld resurrection. The deity may represent the Maya god Chac-Xib-Chac, or GI of the Palenque Triad.

The pre-Columbian incense burner above depicts a fanged deity or ruler wearing the headdress of the Mexican god Tlaloc. The headdress is crowned with three Fleur de lis symbols and two encoded mushrooms. The god Tlaloc has been identified as the Nahua (Mexican) counterpart to the Maya Rain God Chaac. Both deities are associated with human sacrifice and ritual decapitation that I propose are also linked to the planet Venus as the Evening Star.

Above is an early pre-Conquest codex painting, that depicts a blue sacrificial victim, holding an axe in one hand encoded with the Fleur de lis.

Above are images from Spanish chronicles and pre-Hispanic and Colonial period manuscripts called codices, that I would argue esotericlly encode the Fleur de lis in depictions of decapitation.

Above is a scene from the temple of Sippar of the so-called “Sun-god Tablet” about B.C. 900.The ancient Babylonian stone relief depicts what appears to be the resurrection or raising of the Sun God with ropes by a bearded deity wearing a conical-shaped hat. Note that the Sun God, or wheel of the sun, or sun disk, emerges from a Fleur de lis symbol on an altar next to a pillar, that most likely represents the Word Tree portal. Note that the pillar also encodes the Fleur de lis emblem as a symbol of divine resurrection.
