Through the years I have done many exhibits and met thousands of people within the context of showing my art to the public. Working in the environment of these exhibits resulted in my coming to the conclusion and realization that a viewer’s reactions to any given artwork are often very subjective and depend entirely on their personal background and experience as it relates to the art on display. Within the context of major art exhibits, an artist’s work can be seen to be primarily a pneumonic devise or external stimulus which stimulates the viewer’s subjective experience while viewing the art. This concept and idea leads naturally to the truism that artists as creators can literally transform the experience people have within the environment in which their art is displayed.
At the Joy of Sculpture exhibit these two axiomatic truths were quickly to become a hard-core reality for my own personal experience at the exhibit. For example it soon became apparent I couldn't pass through or be in Rik Sargent’s exhibit space without a flood of angel imagery and ideas entering my mind from my subconscious. The net effect of Rik’s exhibit on me personally was to trigger an outpouring of ideas which seemed to come automatically without prompting, well at least the art seemed to be doing the prompting. From my personal point of view the result of Rick’s exhibit was that his sculptures brought back the memories of my study of angel Iconography and Christian Icons. The images and ideas flooding into my conscious mind were of concepts I had come across during my overview study of angel iconography. It was Rik's art that was stimulating this response from my memory.

Almost all the stories can be viewed as variations on the theme of how the `powerful' (different perspective of power within each individual character) oppress the weak and while doing this, Tom Paine often relates to the uneasy moments when two cultures collide.

In 1998 by chance I was ask to do an interpretation of what the "Ark of the Covenant" may have looked like by a pastor in Denver. My personal approach to this problem was to put the concept of the ark into its chronological and geographical context in art history in order to interpolate what it may have looked like.
This article is an attempt to share some of these memories with the readers of this article.
To put things in chronological order, the earliest image in art history which I could find that seems to relate strongly to our modern Iconography of an angel was created 6000 years ago during the Naquada period of pre-dynastic Egypt in approximately 4000 BC. The Dancing Goddess images can be found both in pottery and petroglyphs in the Egyptian Eastern desert next to long established trading routes between the Red sea and the settlement of Naquada in the Nile river valley near Luxor.

Luxor has long been recognized as one of Egypt’s most alluring destinations. Luxor’s numerous fascinating architectural structures, temples, tombs, and monuments have been attracting people form all over the world for years. It is often referred to as the “world’s greatest open air museum” because of its never ending magnificent historical sights.
The romantic and Victorian Era created some of the most ostentatious contributions to the visions of angels with Queen Victoria's memorial, nothing has been done since that compares to her's and prince Albert's memorial.
The thesis makes a contribution to the context of the Luxor Open Air Museum, that has a firm geographic identity, through showing how this it effects the city structure and its social arena.
It can be concluded that the open air museum in Luxor has failed to achieve its aim to improve the social life of the areas surrounding the open-air museum.
