A Heavenly Riddle

Question

Posted · Report post

(Minor edit)

Pagan is my type and title

Jesus my first born,

Muted in His lordly pain

From Lamb was golden shorn.

At my feet upon the stone

Where heaven’s light has bowed

Are written in the hands of men

Glyphs to claim a crowd.

East to West where marks the best

Of those who first unspoken

Paved the way for those today

Who capture hearts oft broken.

Chad, Happy to explain more fully than above.

**Pagan is my type and title**

Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Pagan refers to polytheistic cultures. Chinese are a pagan culture. The theater is done in a strictly Chinese architecture.

**Jesus my first born

Muted in His lordly pain

From Lamb was golden shorn.***

The first movie to premiere in Grauman’s was “King of Kings,” about the last days of Christ. It was a silent movie (muted) and garnered a good bit of $receipts$ (gold).

**At my feet upon the stone

Where heaven’s light has bowed

Are written in the hands of men

Glyphs to claim a crowd.**

At the front of Grauman’s, in the sidewalk are the original Stars of Hollywood, where movie stars (heaven’s light) kneel down to press their hands into the pavement, rather than signing their names. It’s a huge tourist attraction.

**East to West where marks the best

Of those who first unspoken**

The Chinese (eastern) styled Grauman’s is in the western U.S. in Hollywood, and it is where the best original silent movie stars are honored.

**Paved the way for those today

Who capture hearts oft broken.**

The tribute is handprints in the pavement and inspire many to seek careers as actors, who capture the hearts of many, particularly those who fall in love with their idols.

Ok, thanks.

I was mostly curious about lines 2-4.

You learn something new everyday.
