Head Fragment of Elvis Presley. Egyptian, xx or xiii dynasty. 4,600-3,900 b.c.e.

On loan to the Museum for “All Elvis Art Show,” 1993. Courtesy Harry Pearson, Egyptologist, White River Jct. The transmigration of icons captured the human imagination from time immemorial. The channels of passage are delineated, not through satellite maps, but rather through “channeling,” [verb: distinct meaning from waterways; the auras, or psychic energies of each living spirit moving through dimensions]. Therefore, Elvis transmutes to Pharaonic dynasties; the identities remain the same the environment is changed. A liturgical usage is: transubstantiation.
