The guest list reads like a who's who from the UN.
When I first watched it, I must admit the pagan over tones weirded me out.
It looked druidic in nature. The scarabs are completely out of place. I wondered if they used stuff from the book of the dead.
I posted it on my Facebook and we all looked at it. Witches and people with Swiss heritage.

It did take 17 years to complete, and it's the longest tunnel in the world. 35 miles.
Swiss friends said it's all based in Swiss folklore, and honoring the completion of this, is just, 'very very "swiss"' .

Looks more like some kind of stupid modern dance number than any kind of pagan ritual.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Yeah I think so. Especially with an international audience you'd whip out the local cultural elements. I'm sure the local culture has a lot of pagan influence though

yup.gif

Too many goats heads for my tastes. Too much weird imagery . The pregnant woman in red is a wow. And again, wtf do scarabs have to d owith Swiss folklore. There's more to this than meets the eye.
More than dance or Swiss folklore. There's a ritual of some kind going on, if you ask me.

Oh I'm sure it has some other embedded meanings. Goats are prevalent in Scandinavian folklore as well so I'm used to it. damned.gif

'The ceremony appears to draw inspiration from local folk tales, specifically the legend about The Devil’s bridge, which goes through Gotthard Pass.

The legend of this particular bridge states that the Reuss was so difficult to ford that a Swiss herdsman wished the devil would make a bridge. The Devil appeared, but required that the soul of the first to cross would be given to him. The mountaineer agreed, but drove a goat across ahead of him, fooling his adversary. Angered by this sham, the devil fetched a rock with the intention of smashing the bridge, but an old woman drew a cross on the rock so the devil could not lift it anymore. The rock is still there and, in 1977, 300,000 Swiss francs were spent to move the 220 ton rock by 127 m in order to make room for the new Gotthard road tunnel.

While the devil lost in the legend, he appears to have won in the tunnel’s opening ceremony.'
