The Davinci Keane Code
An idea for a movie or series
For all the bragging the Bay Area has done about it being a Cultural Mecca of America – and the world – the only famous artists of this area, are Margaret and Christine Rosamond – two women! Margaret Starbird – take note! That is about to change when these huge paintings of Biblical scenes begin to appear in galleries in France and England. People are amazed! Many fall to their knees in religious rapture. There are lines around the block. However, the critics are brutal!
“Why are Jesus and Mary Magdalene’s eyes so….BIG!”
Each show will open with Davinci Keane at his easel doing his version of The Last Supper. The gray-haired gentleman turns to the camera:
“Good evening. My name is Davinci Keane. I am the illegitimate son of Walter Keane, the Great Imposter who claimed he did those Big Eye paintings. My mother is ‘Beatnik Alice’ the Queen of Berkeley Poets. Her poem was read in the movie Bucket of Blood.
The story of my father’s faux success, began when Walter brought home some photographs of the Presco Children taken by his good friend, Jim Bigalow. They had finished a round of golf, and Jim stopped by Rexall Drugs to pick them up.”
“Check these kids out. They belong to my wife’s sister. When I pulled up in my new Chrysler Imperial convertible, children swarmed us. They came at us from everywhere.”
“Excuse me. I got answer this… That will be fine. Bring them on by. My agent Sir Knight Bill Arney is bringing another load of tourist over to see my studio at a $200 hundred dollars a pop. We split 50-50!”
Interpreting Other Names in Lot 49
Although the situations of Oedipa and Mary Magdalene are comparable, it is not until other aspects of Lot 49 are considered that the significance of the connection becomes clear to the plot. Tresemer and Cannon assert that Magdalene “is considered the ‘apostle of apostles,’ and is so called even by Saint Augustine,”54 and Leloup goes on to say that “because she was the first witness of the Resurrection, she was considered by the apostle John as the founder of Christianity, long before Paul and his vision on the road to Damascus.”55 Pierce Inverarity, the writer of the will Oedipa executes and her former lover, has been interpreted by Thomas Hill Schaub to be closely connected to St Peter, who along with St Paul, is traditionally credited as being the founder of the Christian Church.56 J. Kerry Grant writes of Schaub’s interpretation of the text:

“That which I was obliged to tell you of the beauty of Rosamond, in
recounting to you what fashion she appeared to the eyes of my master,
hindered me from extending something upon that of Albisinda: but I
may tell you with truth, that if Rosamond were not in the world,
perhaps there would be nothing more beautiful then that Princess; and
that next to Rosamond, she has those particular charms, which nothing
can withstand: she has without doubt has less splendor and Majesty
than the Princess of the Cimbrians.”
In 1677 de Costes de la Calprenede is said to have written the first
historic romance novel when 1668 he compiled the history of the
Merovingian Frankish Kings in his monumental work ‘Pharamond’. Within
we have an account of Pharamond’s love for Rosemonde, the Cambrian
princess whose tribe, the Cimri, are mentioned in the Bible, they
associated with the Royal Scythians and the people of the ‘Prince of
Rosh’ that Ezekiel prophecised against in chaper 38. They are the
horseman of the Russian Steppes who would form the Celtic peoples
when they moved west. The ancestors of the Merovingians are kin to
the Cimri, who they chased into Asia, all the way to Ceylon India.
The union of Pharmond and Rosamonde will create the Sicambrian
Franks. Gardener says this union brought together to Grail
Gauthier dedicated ‘Pharamond’ to the Dutchess of Albemarle who
marired Christopher Monck, the son of George Monck the Duke of
Albemarle. Albemarle is the orignal name of the city of Charelston
which was a city founded by the The Lords Proprietors. George Monck
was instrumental in restoring the Stuarts to the throne.
I dedicate my last two weeks of blogging to my late facebook friend, Timothy Wallace-Murphy. He dropped in on the templar-yahoo now and then, and received total respect. He was our Gandalf. Being old school, he understood their was built-in fraud in almost everything, especially when it comes to spiritual matters and seeking the truth. The Eve and Apple story is not about punishment, but our fall from grace when we learn we are not perfect. Is there a Merciful God? Can we find Him in our short life-time?
“Unto thy own self be true!”
When three sisters in AA introduced themselves at the Rosamond after Christine’s funeral, I asked them if our sister completed her third step, and found a higher power.
Was Rosamond a authentic human being?
There is an old Iranian man who has been imitating Rosamond since 1976. He signs these knock-offs ‘Sara Moon’. Everyone thought he was a woman. He kept his true identity a secret for years. Some folks thought I was Moon. Last night I saw how similar the name SARA MOON is to the name ROSAMOND. Drop the D and you have seven of the letters that are in the name Sara Moon.“For over 15 years he was totally oblivious to the ‘Where are you, Sara?’ calls that echoed around the world from the multitude of devoted fans he had unwittingly left behind.
With his absence and Red Baron Publishing gone too, his quiet ‘disappearance’ in retirement from Verkerke, the varied signatures on the artworks created much speculation over the years that followed. Did ‘Sara Moon’ ever exist? If so, where was this reclusive artist now?”
In 1973, Christine Rosamond offered to teach me her style so I could be rich and famous, too. I turned this offer down. In 1985 I sent some of my work to my old friend, Marilyn, so she could show them to Ira Cohen, the gallery owner who discovered Rosamond, and helped develop her style. Ten of the first paintings she did for Ira, were rejected.
Upon seeing my work, that included a portrait of my Muse, Rena Christiansen, he told Marilyn my work was “Too hard edge.” But, if I soften them up, he could sell them. I got his drift. Cohen wanted more decorative fashion art.
Sara The Man tailor made his art to sell. It’s like painting checks. Mr. Bijan could care less about owning an integral artistic identity, because he loved his bank! I just couldn’t do it! If I had I would be rolling in the doe and my daughter would not call me a Parasite?
Above is a photo of Marilyn on the beach taken by her friend, Steven Silverstein, the famous fashion photographer. Steven’s women are the Real Deal, real Fashion Plates. Steven photographed some of the most beautiful women in the world, included the First Lady of France. Perhaps I should have become a fashion photographer?
It’s never – too late!
One of Moon’s women is titled ‘Hippie’. Marilyn was a Hippie. She was my first Muse who feels the injustice parasitical outsiders have inflicted upon my family.
I understand folks don’t like me because I keep pointing out real fakes, frauds, and parasites. That many of Moon’s fans don’t mind that he hood-winked them – is the real study here! Behold the Republican candidates who are running on the platform Democrats are parasites!
Some of my friends wonder why I gave up wanting to be an artist.

Rose Selavy + Sara Moon
Posted on December 4, 2011 by Royal Rosamond PressThe really famous world artist, Marcel Duchamp, dressed in drag and called himself ‘Rose Selavy’. When he came to America, Vogue magazine did an article about him, and exposed him to celebrity status – American Style – where he lay his famous signature on his fans and other items in order to generate more fame – and money! This inspired Duchamp to render a check to pay for his dental work. His dentist took this check as payment understanding it would be famous one day and worth more the the cost of his work.
When Christine Roosamoon died, she left behind thousands of unsigned lithographs. Stacey Pierrot petitioned the probate court for an Estate Seal in order to apply the ROSAMOND signature from the Land of the Dead. This Seal of the Dead was a metal object that was applied to a the lower right hand corner of these prints, and the paper was raised up in a intaglio manner to make an embossed signature that can be read by the blind. This made Pierrot an Art Check Writer, who loves her bank! How can she blame Mr. Sara Moon for his attachements, his, blood-sucking?
Duchamp was a friend of Denis De Rougemont ‘The Prince of European Culture’ and co-founder of the European Union, that is rewriting its Constitution in order to keep the European Economy from collapsing. Rougemont may be our kinsfolk.
Sane folk understand the Banks of the World committed massive fraud on the people, while stupid Republican want to believe the Poor Parasitical People are to blame. This is because they are into Stupid Voo-Doo Economics, where we find Mr. Lucky Jesus handing out autographs like crazy to his – Chosen Ones!
Vogue refused to put Duchamp’s painting they commissioned on the cover of their magazine. Did in of Rena’s siters appear in Vogue? How about Steven Silverstein’s images? Did Duchamp understand fashion models were all the vogue, and thus he became one?
Rrose Sélavy, or Rose Sélavy, was one of the pseudonyms of artist Marcel Duchamp. The name, a pun, sounds like the French phrase “Eros, c’est la vie”, which translates to English as “eros, that’s life”. It has also been read as “arroser la vie” (“to make a toast to life”).
Sélavy emerged in 1921 in a series of photographs by Man Ray of Duchamp dressed as a woman. Through the 1920s, Man Ray and Duchamp collaborated on more photos of Sélavy. Duchamp later used the name as the byline on written material and signed several creations with it.
Duchamp used the name in the title of at least one sculpture, Why Not Sneeze, Rose Sélavy? (1921). The sculpture, a type of readymade called an assemblage, consists of an oral thermometer, a couple dozen small cubes of marble resembling sugar cubes inside a birdcage. Sélavy also appears on the label of Belle Haleine, Eau de Voilette (1921), a readymade that is a perfume bottle in the original box. Duchamp also signed his film Anemic Cinema (1926) with the Sélavy name.
From 1922 the name Rrose Sélavy also started appearing in a series of aphorisms, puns and spoonerisms by the French surrealist poet Robert Desnos. Desnos tried to portray Rrose Sélavy as a long lost aristocrat and rightful queen of France. Aphorism 13 paid homage to Marcel Duchamp: “Rrose Sélavy connaît bien le marchand du sel” [in English: “Rrose Sélavy knows the merchant of salt well”; in French the final words sound like Mar-champ Du-cel — Duchamp’s compiled notes are titled ‘Salt Seller’]. (Note that the ‘salt seller’ aphorism – “mar-chand-du-sel” – is a phonetic rearrangement of the syllables in the artist’s actual name: “mar-cel-du-champ.”) In 1939 a collection of these aphorisms was published under the name of Rrose Sélavy, entitled Poils et coups de pieds en tous genres.
The inspiration of the name Rrose Sélavy has been viewed to be Belle da Costa Greene, J.P. Morgan’s librarian of The Morgan Library & Museum (formerly The Pierpont Morgan Library) who, following his death, became the Library’s director, working there for a total of forty-three years. Empowered by J.P. Morgan, and then by his son Jack, Greene built the collection buying and selling rare manuscripts, books and art.
The late Ilmar Laaban – an Estonian poet, lecturer, polyglot and intellectual who died in exile in Sweden, who is often called “the father of Estonian surrealism”, wrote a collection of poetry called “Rroosi Selaviste” in Estonian that is based on wordplay and puns. Rroosi Selaviste (published 1957) is without a doubt one of his major accomplishments – a playful homage to his native tongue that not only shows the suppleness of the Estonian language, but also showcases Laaban’s virtuosity as a wordsmith.
Niandra LaDes, an alter ego by John Frusciante, was based on Rrose Sélavy. This character is also featured on the cover of Frusciante’s 1994 album Niandra LaDes and Usually Just a T-Shirt, which is a screenshot from a film by Frusciante’s then-girlfriend, Toni Oswald. This film remains unreleased, though a tradition among the avant-garde is to show the film in the proximity of items bearing a similar resemblance to a Duchampian “fountain”. [2
You know, I like signing all those things – it devalues them,” Duchamp confided to Richard Hamilton at the Pasadena Art Museum. (Tomkins 1965, p. 68.) A retrospective of his work had just opened (1963) and without reluctance Duchamp spent the morning signing papers, posters and other objects. His fame in America was greater than ever, and as Duchamp recalled himself he would sign anything in those days. (cf. Judovitz 1995, p. 162.) Many more shows were put together in the years to follow. Vogue interviewed Duchamp, museums organized round table discussions where Duchamp himself would frequently show up, and slowly a body of literature emerged that vainly tried to pin down the meaning of his work.
A little over a year after Pasadena, the same ritual took place: a show opened at the Cordier & Ekstrom Gallery in New York and an unknown man entered.(1) Philippe Bruno, more of a groupie than an art collector, had cut out all newspaper reviews of the show and pasted them in his copy of the show’s catalogue. If Duchamp could sign this please, maybe on the blank check that was attached with a paperclip to the page where the Tzanck Check was reproduced (facing L.H.O.O.Q.)…
