"The OrthodoxByzantine[1][2][3] or more generally Russian (Orthodox) Cross[1][4][5][6] is a variation of the Christian cross, commonly found in Eastern Orthodox Churches. The cross has three horizontal crossbeams—the top represents the plate inscribed with INRI, and the bottom, a footrest. In the Russian Orthodox tradition, the lower beam is slanted: the side to Christ's right is usually higher. According to Russian Orthodox tradition, when Saint Andrew was preaching in southern Russia, he used a similarly designed life-sized cross and tilted the footrest to show that those on Christ's right would ascend to Heaven, while those on Christ's left would descend to Hell. Consequently, in the Russian Orthodox Church this cross is sometimes called the Cross of Saint Andrew.[citation needed] In the Greek Orthodox Church, the footrest remains straight, as in earlier representations."

=> Jared's cross is an inverted orthodox cross

Jared & Shannon on the glyphics - old interviews
by I know a lil 'bout a lot of things, just enough... (letosghanima)
at September 6th, 2011 (03:10 pm)


Shoutweb: What images and visual devices are you looking to use to represent 30 Seconds To Mars? What are your video plans for "Capricorn" and other future singles?

Jared: We have always been interested in iconographic images, signs, and symbols, and their relationship to cultures. We have symbols called GLYPHICS that represent different elements in our band. But let me say this, we never want this to distract from what THIRTYSECONDSTOMARS is all about, and that is music.

Source: www.shoutweb.com/interviews/30secondstomars0502.phtml 2002





"Thirty Seconds To Mars is a giant art project," enlightens Leto, “and the glyphics are iconography that represents specific elements within the band. They’re not referenced from any culture or society, it’s just about my fascination with putting power behind a symbol - the earliest form of human expression.” And while the curious creations are freely exhibited via each member’s wristband and tattoo, their exact meaning remains shrouded, much like Leto’s own visage. “It’s just something that’s not so cheap it’s given away, “ he justifies.

RENEE: WHAT EXACTLY DO THE GLYPHICS MEAN?

Shannon: *whispering* if we tell you, we're going to have to kill you!

LAURIE: I've heard that before.

Matt: That's the standard answer, yup. They represent different factions within 30 STM. There's no one specific meaning. It all goes back to the interpretation thing. We don't want to just lay it out there, you know, they may mean something different to you. Why steal the piss out of that?

Shannon: yeah the piss, why steal the piss? the piss.

Matt: yeah the piss, p-i-s-s, the piss.

Shannon: yeah, the piss. yeah, they represent different levels, different subdivisions within 30 STM and they'll
be revealed as time goes on.

AMELIA: so what does 30 seconds to mars mean?

SHANNON LETO: there are several different elements to what it means, but it’s like the exponential growth of technology plays with the human element. it’s moving at such a rapid rate. it’s ludicrous. we’re in a constant state of projection. it’s almost like we’re 30 seconds from mars.

A: and the glyphics. what do they stand for?

SL: the glyphics represent different levels. all will be revealed in time.

[Jared:] "(...) There's something, I think, so simplistic, almost primordial, about the images themselves. When they came to be it was very clear that something in its simplest and least detailed, least manufactured form worked the best for us."

"And it's weird that in life human beings always have a relationship to symbology even beyond language," he continues. "It's something you'll find in every society or culture in the world. People have used the power of symbols to convey bigger messages and these symbols all do that for us, they hold a bigger ideal that represents something that's maybe a little bit more powerful than just the music. It’s a way for there to be an extension into the two-dimensional or three-dimensional world. It's a platform for us to explore and do things that are creative and artistic."

(...)

"There are four what we call glyphics that represent different elements with 30 Seconds to Mars," says Leto. "We have a lot of symbology, which is something I've always been interested in. I think it's kind of an excuse for us to apply this art side to the project as well.

"There's a set of four new ones, but these are consistent," he continues. "They're not just for one album. We do have other symbols like the arrow, which is based on the Norse symbol for the god Tyr, which represents order, direction, consequence. And we have a phoenix seal as well, which represents, obviously, rebirth and it's a classic ancient symbol that we have on our 30 Seconds to Mars seal. A lot of people have gotten that tattooed. Then we have a saying, 'Provehito in altum,' which means 'Launch forth into the deep,' which is a Latin phrase that we use on the symbol as well."

Some musings...

Wiki-wisdom -> clavicle:
- It's a... "key": "It receives its name from the Latin: clavicula ("little key") because the bone rotates along its axis like a key when the shoulder is abducted."
- "Transmits physical impacts from the upper limb to the axial skeleton." So if you punch someone/something... it helps deal the body with the physical stress due to the force that is used? And when you try to fend off an attack with your fore-arm too?

Anyway... first time he uses writing for a tattoo. And... look: twitter.com/#!/jaredleto/status/76397743182061568. 'Helvetica' ... "the way type affects our lives".
