The myth represented in this Hall tells of the divinity that enters the world of forms fragmenting itself, like a mirror, into countless pieces. Each piece keeps its peculiarity of reflecting the absolute, although it cannot contain the whole any longer. Seeing our image reflected in the Hall of Mirrors reminds us of our divine origin, the same origin that permeates any expression of life.
At the center of the ceiling, a beautiful Tiffany stained-glass dome illuminates the entire Hall with warm, solar light which is reflected in the game of mirrors underneath. The images and colors represented in the Hall are multiplied time and time again and, by analogy, our human eyes and mind open up to new perspectives.
The sound of the gong enriches the visitor’s experience: its frequency activates all the energies in the Hall and harmonizes the energy points in our body. A balcony runs around the whole perimeter under the dome, free of support from the floor. Mosaics made of glass and glass paste, dedicated to the rituals of Solstices and Equinoxes, embellish the walls all around the balcony with symbols and colors that recall the other Halls in the Temple.
On the floor, a black marble round, surrounded by a strip of mosaic, represents a dandelion, the symbolic flower of Damanhur. At the sides of the Hall, four alcoves open up showing adorned glass doors and windows dedicated to the four elements.
