Chambers of Bramah Interior


Licensed from the Lord of Light Company~ the entire super-rare series of unpublished Jack Kirby art work, originally commissioned for the film version of Roger Zelazny's LORD OF LIGHT and the 1000 acre Science Fiction Land theme park project in Reno, Toronto, Montreal and Colorado, from 1978 to 1980. Soon to be the subject of a feature film and major documentary.

The Lord of Light Art series was envisioned and designed by Barry Ira Geller and Jack Kirby, drawn with incendiary brilliance by Jack and inked with devastating intensity by Mike Royer. Each Kirby architectual masterpiece was created both as a film set design and theme park illustration. Each Art Print portrays the same kick-ass, roving birds-eye view style Jack was famous for, ranging from the power of Captain America and Fantastic Four, to the majesty of Thor and the New Gods. As depicted in Wired Magazine May 2007, this is one of the Lord Of Light prints CIA spies used to secretly free six American Hostages from Iran.

History:

Jack Kirby: I said to Jack, This, to me, had to represent "God's Waiting Room." I mean, if such a thing really existed physically, what would it look like? I had persistent visions of the "jutting out walkways where gods takes a meeting with a levitating Brahma in the center of his Chambers, hundreds of feet up..... " I told Jack, "so you sit down on a chair in the Chamber's Alcove of your name, press a button and it whooshes you out to the center of a great building space except nothing is below you or around you and you are just a few feet away from Brahma, who's displeasure can end your life... "

So Brahma levitates on his electronic Naga Throne, 2-300 feet up in the air. Gods who take a "Heavenly Meeting" sit on on their own chairs which telescope out from statues and columns along the chamber's walls, like spokes of a wheel but suspended in mid-air.

I had to work hard to come up with all the concepts which Roger Zelazny only alluded to but which didn't exist in the novel. With both Brahma Chamber Exterior and Interior drawings, I literally had to invent, in the broadest mental brushstrokes, buildings which were alive with their own consciousness yet would dramatize the full nature of the Beings who built them. It couldn't be weird, it had to be real. Once "built"in my mind thus, I could take the nascent visions to Jack who truly acted as my mage and master coconspirator in the final development of the designs we now have. Thusly did Jack and I interact, as father and son, as developer and designer, continually changing places as master and student, and, ultimately, as partners in exploration:

Lord of Light:  In the Novel, there is nothing called the Royal Chambers of Brahma - Interior or Exterior. There does exist a meeting of Brahma and the rest of the Gods and I thought, well, these guys just don't meet in a bar! So I got the idea of the pomp and circumstance of Brahma's Chambers! Additionally, in the novel, Brahma does allude to his Pavilion of Joys as the ultimate pleasure palace to take Kali and explore her charms, in exchange for extending Sam's life. But Brahma -- and all the rest of the Gods, have had to live somewhere fantastic! So I came up with this stuff and brought it all to Jack.

Science Fiction Land: The Interior building find Brahma levitating, as above. A great big statue. We enter a building and look up to see the wonder fo what the hell is going on up there, between the Gods up there -- and us-- down here, puny mortals!

The Exterior building of the Royal Chambers is capped by a great light source which will beckon for miles. A cantilevered multicolored artificial Garden of Joys rings around the building, where visitors will run into Godlike Androids playing music. One cannot imagine the kind of horror engineers displayed when I demanded from them their own architectural renderings of this drawing!
