The Louvre Pyramid – a masterpiece of architect Pei
The Louvre Pyramid is a large glass and metal pyramid designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei and is located in the main courtyard of the Louvre Palace in Paris.
The Louvre Pyramid is surrounded by three smaller pyramids and there is the inverted pyramid that is visible from underground.
The pyramid used as an entrance in the Louvre’s courtyard has the exact proportions as the Great Pyramid of Giza. At its base, the pyramid measures 116 feet wide and 70 feet high. 95 tons of steel and 105 tons of aluminum support the structure.
The Louvre Pyramid will bring the end of the world?
The Pyramid was very unpopular when it was built. Most felt that Pei’s modern design would interact with the Louvre’s Classical architecture.
The Pyramid has 673 glass panes, but it is believed that there are in fact 666. This is the number of the devil and the beast in the Apocalypse. Some believe that this Pyramid will bring the end of the world.
One writer on esoteric architecture asserted that “the pyramid is dedicated to a power described as the Beast in the Book of Revelation…The entire structure is based on the number 6.”
