THIS TRULY AWESOME LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT IS INSPIRED BY THE ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’ THEME, TRANSLATED AS ‘EVEN IN ARCADIA I EXIST’, A MEMENTO MORI REMINDING US THAT EVEN IN THE BLISSFUL UTOPIA OF ARCADIA, DEATH IS INEVITABLE. SO IT’S A CALL TO ‘LIVE IMMEDIATELY!’ AND THIS LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT WEARS THE MESSAGE ON ITS SLEEVE. ‘EVEN IN PARADISE, THERE IS DEATH’.

 

DEATH STAMPS ITSELF LOUD OVER NICOLAS POUSSIN’S FIRST PAINTING OF ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’ (C. 1627) ALSO KNOWN AS ‘LES BERGERS D'ARCADIE’ OR ‘THE ARCADIAN SHEPHERDS’ HELD AT CHATSWORTH HOUSE. IT SHOWS A BLISSFUL PASTORAL PARADISE WITH IDEALISED SHEPHERDS, GATHERED AROUND AN AUSTERE TOMB, BEARING THE INSCRIPTION ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’. (HIS LATER PAINTING IS HELD AT THE LOUVRE. FOR THAT ONE, SEE OUR WHITE ‘LOUVRE’ HOODIE).

 

POUSSIN’S PICTURE AND THE PHRASE ARE BOTH PACKED WITH ESOTERIC RIDDLES THAT CONCEAL ANCIENT CONSPIRACIES. ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’ IS ALSO AN ANAGRAM OF ‘I TEGO ARCANA DEI’, FOUND IN THE WARNING FOR THE MARANATHA PUZZLE AND TRANSLATED AS ‘BEGONE! I CONCEAL THE SECRETS OF GOD’.

 

CONSPIRACISTS ARGUE THAT POUSSIN WAS A SORT OF ALL-KNOWING PANJANDRUM WITHIN A SECRET SOCIETY. HE PAINTED INTO THIS PICTURE A CRYPTIC KEY THAT COULD BE READ ONLY BY OTHER MEMBERS, A SHADOWY GROUP CALLED THE ‘PRIORY OF SION’, WHO ARE AROUND US EVEN TO THIS DAY; MYSTERIOUSLY, SILENTLY BIDING THEIR TIME, PROTECTING THE BLOODLINE OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS SUPPOSED WIFE MARY MAGDALEN, PLOTTING TO RULE OVER A THEOCRATIC AND NEO-CHIVALRIC EUROPEAN SUPER-STATE.

 

TEMPLARS. ROSICRUCIANS. THE HOLY GRAIL. IT GETS BETTER; OCCULT READING TREASURE HUNTERS CLAIM POUSSIN USED A HIDDEN GEOMETRY POINTING TO REAL-WORLD PLACES; A PENTAGRAM MIRRORING THE GEOGRAPHIC POSITIONS OF TEMPLAR CASTLES AND OTHER LANDMARKS NOT FAR FROM A VILLAGE CALLED RENNES-LE-CHATEAU IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, ENCLOSING THE AREA WHERE THE DESCENDANTS OF CHRIST SECRETLY SETTLED. A CONCEALED PLAN OF THE INTERIOR OF THE GREAT PYRAMID AT GIZA. A MAP THAT POINTS TO A TEMPLAR TREASURE HORDE HIDDEN ON OAK ISLAND IN NOVA SCOTIA. A TIE THROUGH ‘SACRED GEOMETRY’ WITH A DESTROYED PLANET FROM WHICH A GROUP OF ALIEN SETTLERS CAME TO LIVE ON EARTH.

 

IT’S A HAIR-CURLING RABBIT HOLE OF MIND-BOGGLINGLY ECCENTRIC GOBBLEDEGOOK. BUT THIS ICONIC LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT TAKES IT ALL IN, STAMPS DEATH ON IT, AND ALLOWS YOU TO STRIKE OUT IN SEARCH OF ‘THE TRUTH’ AND MAKE YOUR OWN SPURIOUS CASE, PIECING TOGETHER RANDOM UNRELATED PIECES OF INFORMATION TO CONSTRUCT YOUR OWN CONCRETE THEORY. OR TO JUST TRASH THE LOT OF IT AND LOOK FABULOUS. WHO KNOWS, ‘ET IN ARCADIA EGO’ COULD JUST BE A BAROQUE VERSION OF ‘I WOZ ERE’.

 

SOFT, SMOOTH, STRONG. IT’S A T-SHIRT IS FOR THOSE WHO WOULD RATHER DIE A MEANINGFUL DEATH THAN LIVE A MEANINGLESS LIFE. THE T-SHIRT THAT YOU ALWAYS KNEW WAS OUT THERE, BUT NEVER QUITE FOUND, EVEN THOUGH IT FEELS LIKE YOU’VE HAD IT FOREVER, AND EVER…  AMEN.
