“Thou shines beautiful on the horizon of heaven, O Living Disk, who lived from the beginning.” -Akhenaten’s Hymn To The Sun
This altar contains the elements of earth, water, fire, and air. It offers an assemblage of works that speak to the heavenly bodies that comprise the ATEN project [The Aten (Sun disk), Mercury, Venus, Earth, Earth’s Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto]. These objects include photographs, jewelry from the collection of Jomama Jones, everyday ceremonial objects from the collection of Daniel Alexander Jones, and objects gathered specifically for this installation. As well there are some paintings by Jones and by visual artists Tonya Engel [“Love”, and “Flowering” (the album-cover portrait of Jomama from 2016)]; and Todd Christopher Jones [“Raziel”]. This altar was conceived by Daniel Alexander Jones and built by Jones with assistance from Beth Golison.
