Amanda Sage’s New York terror art: built and ruined

Amanda Sage’s collaboration artwork of the 2001 New York terror attack in surreal and abstract style, is similar to some rock art and ayahuasca artworks, where ‘entoptics’ appear among representations. her themes recall the Babylonian and Biblical Tower of Babel tale, including warring bee tribes; and Tarot trump 16, Tower struck by lightning; and Basil Valentine’s alchemical emblem of an island city struck by lightning. These works express type 1 Builder or Ruiner.

Some rock art works also use abstract shape as subconscious characters (see Furter 2017a; Recurrent characters in rock art reveal objective meaning, in Expression 16, June. Italy: Atelier Etno). Below is the structuralist analysis of how this artwork expresses universal archetypal features, in the standard structuralist anthropology format.
