The Initiated Eye: Secrets, Symbols, Freemasonry and the Architecture of Washington, DC

Building The Temple Within **Building the Temple Within
62" x 42", oil on canvas

The city plan of Washington, DC - with its radiating avenues and circles overlaying a grid pattern of right angled streets - presents daily challenges to visitors and residents alike as they navigate between the monuments and buildings that symbolize our national capitol.

But the circles, squares, angles, and architecture in the Federal city hold a far deeper symbolism for a small fraternity of men present from the time Washington began to rise from the tidal swamps and wooded hills lying along the banks of the Potomac.

The Initiated Eye: Secrets, Symbols, Freemasonry and the Architecture of Washington, DC, With Paintings by Peter Waddell explores the Masonic ideals and designs implicit in the fabric of the city. From the republican ideals made manifest in stone, to the carefully defined vistas linking famous heroes who were also Freemasons, an intriguing architectural and historical perspective is demonstrated by combining artist Peter Waddell's paintings with seldom Masonic artifacts.
