This work, the first Tracing Board by masonic artist Ryan J. Flynn, shows the essential symbols of the Entered Apprentice Degree in a revolutionary new way. Designed to be used in during the history section of the degree, this large piece can be easily viewed by all the members of the lodge and will add something to your lodges identity that will last for generations.
“Ever since I began my journey as a masonic artist, one thing has been on my mind. Tracing Boards. This November, I finally completed my first tracing board, The Portale Panel.
This design is a bit different than the tracing boards of the past as I created it in a way that incorporates a scene that is almost narrative in it’s own right. Taking an artistic license with some essential symbols of a traditional tracing board. “
"Employing the rich language of traditional Masonic iconography, this painting presents the architectural and cosmological symbols of the first degree in a novel composition that invites meditation. Challenging the concepts of inside and outside, upward and inward, Bro∴ Flynn’s tracing board invites all of us to a deeper understanding of the Entered Apprentice degree."
