Chatty gargoyle at Denver International airport

And this "horror host" apparently has to truly ad lib with regard to his unpredictable environment -- no snarky comments scripted in advance for movie scenes. Amazing that MST3K never mocked that 1972 flick Gargoyles. Though Svengoolie did somewhat recently air it.

Apparently it's real!

Not really surprising. You know what they say about the exceedingly weird Denver airport really being a temple to the Illuminati... There's a whole giant network of tunnels under the airport where they supposedly hold black masses and conjure up demons. Not surprising that MR would know all about that. (Skeptics say the tunnels were built for a baggage handling system that never worked and was abandoned... but that's what they want you to think.)

Here's some of the airport art:

Here's the airport dedication stone. Note the Masonic symbolism and reference to something called the 'New World Airport Commission' (which nobody has ever heard of) which supposedly built the airport. (If you add the numerals in 19, 1994, they total 33, the highest degree in Masonry.)

The runways kind of resemble a swastika from the air:

And of course the giant anatomically-correct blue horse with red glowing eyes (that fell over and crushed its creator to death as it was being erected):

In Denver they call it "Blucifer".

If you're afraid of flying, this airport is just the thing to scare the crap out of you.

I wonder how they do the gargoyle. It's too good for AI. Assuming that there isn't a demon inside it, there must be a human being somewhere that's operating the thing.

I stared at that painting for 10 minutes trying to figure out what it was saying. And I have no idea what they were saying. Seems like they're glorifying war or something. Abit too dark and apocalyptic for the sunny secular atmosphere of an airport. They need to rethink their decor motif. Something a little more this millenium.

In my youth I drank a fair amount of Rolling Rock beer when in the USA.. On the back of each bottle was the #33 plus a description that consisted of 33 words. There are many more theories as to why the number 33 is on the label, including The Masons. Some are listed in the link, including commentary

New World Airport Commission may be a misunderstood caption used by a stone engraver who might have consumed too much Rolling Rock the night before. He only scratched in what he thought he heard. It was too late to change it by then. Perhaps they wouldn't agree to his price so he doctored it out of anger. Who knows, and coincidences abound.

The menacing soldier painting is part of a set. The second painting depicts just the opposite, with "people of diverse cultures celebrating" behind the corpse of the fallen solider, two doves perched on the gun.

There's a lengthy mural that also has two contrasting sections, one pessimistic and the other optimistic.

The airport was built during an era in Denver when multiculturalism was an especially big deal. Due to the city's first Hispanic and first African American mayors, and minority and immigrant workers intended to be employed for the project. Thus painter Leo Tanguma being hired to "stimulate conversation about the environment, diversity, and the pursuit of peace for years to come". IOW, emphasize the economic and social justice utopia of the future alongside the prior negative effects of the Euro-centric reign.

The horse sculpture really is just a convergence of oddball coincidences and the eccentric artistic tastes of its ill-fated creator. It was modeled on a smaller mustang at OU.

One of the supposed, official accounts is that "The New World Airport Commission" is a name either chosen by or given to "a group of local politicians and businesspeople that assisted in the promotion and funding of the airport". The freemason symbolism (33 stuff excluded) similarly pays homage to "a local charity and social organisation" that was apparently part of the aforementioned participants.
