The Creation Chariot

The Creation Chariot is a wheeled ‘vehicle’ that, starting resting on the floor of the Pyramid Hollow, during an Apotheosis, is drawn up a track in the centre of the stair that climbs between the tiers. Processions march up on either side. It rolls on six wheels, each pair coloured differently: black, green and red.

The core rituals of an Apotheosis are carried out on the platform on top of the Chariot. The Candidate stands there surrounded by the Grand Sapients. Before him, in a ‘turtle hollow’ lies the Victim.

Note the torsion device that lies up the steps and to one side…
