These oooooh you do look heavenly ! creatures are based on the myth of Centaurs a cross between a horse and a man but these depicted are crossed between a man and an albatross or albamantross known to haunt the minds of governing body members in the wee small hours of the morning when they are trying hard to go sleep when worrying about whether their upstate retirement home will be ready before the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.
A picture so outrageous, it deserves its own thread...
Ooh! Ooh! I can answer this! The "golden glass table" is the sea of glass where the throne is (Revelation). The wheels within wheels are mentioned in Isaiah's vision.
Well I agree 100% with Cedars. The picture is creepy. Why not just go ahead and put Molech on that throne?
This photo combined with the new baptisim vow, songbook with more mentions of the BORG than Jesus, and the request for halls to remove "Christian" from signs..stick me with a fork...I'm done.
These guys have out Poped the Pope.

Also, what brand of sunglasses is the big angel on the right wearing, I wonder? They're odd. Or maybe he has giant holes in his head instead of eyes.
Good find, Rebel 8; I didn't notice that.... Aside from the golden belt he's wearing (and the angel behind him seemingly isn't wearing one, so some heavenly designation of his rank?), those tiny sunglasses would seemingly point to Jesus, as his future's so bright, he's gotta wear shades?
The picture depicts heaven and earth; they have seen fit to include lots of small details about heaven, like the chariot, the sea of glass, and a mighty angel, archangel?
Jesus is never depicted as an angel.
Jesus is not found in either the heavenly portion, the in between or on the earth, leading the congregations.
The picture is blatant in not depicting Jesus.
Will any dubs notice?
Doubtful. The WT has so de-emphasized Jesus I think no one will notice.
If they do, they won't dare question it.
This may have been brought out but where is the dudes tie.
We used to examine pictures in great detail in our Watchtower studies. I would be interesting to see the response if someone says, "Jesus is not in the picture, is it new light that the GB report directly to Jehovah now?"
Regarding the glass ceiling, they should have added another between the congregation and the elders.
Devils advocate, here. I recall that wt teaching is that jesus sits on jay hoovers throne. 'Course, that could be future in wt chronology. Not sure when that was supposed to happen. Could that be jebus up there?
