Another Da Vinci signal: Louvre pyramid architect dies


This just in: Renowned architect I.M. Pei who designed the Louvre glass pyramid in Paris has died at 102. (Hat tip reader Dreyes.)

You know what this means multicontextually…

There was another recent “da Vinci death” directly linked to the Louvre back on April 24th. As we noted at the time:

French actor Jean-Pierre Marielle who played Jacques Sauniere in the 2006 film The Da Vinci Code passed away yesterday, April 24, in Paris. (H/t reader H2020.) This comes only 9 days after the Notre Dame inferno in Paris or as we called it “The Da Vinci Fire“. Though mostly a dead figure in The Da Vinci Code Sauniere is an important character who is both the Louvre’s curator in Paris and secretly the grand master of the Priory of Sion (the guardians of the Holy Grail/Royal Blood) which is a key plot in the story from beginning to end, just as this “da Vinci” theme is a key context underlying this whole period we are in right now. (P.S. In the partially real history of the “Priory of Sion” explored in Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Leonardo was a Priory grand master.)
