This picture, which originally appeared on a poster published by the Council of Europe, was taken from the famous painting by the 16th Century Flemish artist Pieter Brueghel depicting the well-known Tower of Babel scene from the Book of Genesis (chap.11, verses 1-9). This poster was reprinted in the Autumn 1996 edition of International Currency Review, a journal of the world financial community, which perceptively noted that the European symbol of twelve stars above the tower are mysteriously inverted to resemble upside-down pentagrams -- a well-known occult symbol.
