Denver International Airport: Sinister Symbolism


Animal lovers understand symbolism; the tented roofline, God Of Death statue, satanic blue horse, threatening religious artwork, New World Order, Masonic messages, and….


A "bug out" location for world leaders, Denver International Airport (DIA) is no ordinary airport.  World leaders can fly directly to the Airport's underground communication-survival city which is larger than the city of Manhattan.


Most people know nothing about the underground complex which rivals the Cheyenne Mountain blast-proof military installation[1].  DIA's "tented" roof-line is however, not without controversy and those arriving by ground transport pass a 7-ton 26 foot tall statue of Anabas God Of Death, erected in 2010.


How could a major airport like Denver International turn into a religious and racially-charged political conspiracy-theorist's dream come true?  And more to the point, why have the most revealing videos of the terminal interior been scrubbed since this was published in 2013?


First the background: In the early 90s, then-Denver mayor Federico Peña suggested they “move” the old Stapleton International Airport.  It was long overdue.  Air traffic had tremendously increased along with the size, roar, and down-thrust of the big jet-liners.  First-time travelers on I-70 East will never forget the sensation of a massive jet roaring straight at them, then passing just 30’ overhead as they mercifully escaped into the tunnel under runway 17R/35L.


The Fentress Bradburn architectural firm was given the contract and it was Bradburn himself who decided that the roof span needed to be cabled. That led to hiring Horst Berger, who had designed the Hajj Terminal at the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia.  Somehow Bradburn’s original concept of “an encampment of Native Americans on a bluff” or as he further described it, “white teepees rising out of the grasslands” changed.  Radically. Instead of “the original inhabitants’ architecture” as was the intent of the architectural firm, it glaringly resembled desert tents in Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Tunisia.



Visible, i.e. above-ground construction was completed in 1995, over a year behind schedule and at a cost of $4.8 billion. The DIA roofline itself seemed strange but not that time, we didn't know about ISIS, Muslim terrorists, and 911 had not yet occurred. Nonetheless, the public was deeply offended by the interior design and death-theme content (see video below). Travelers were unaccustomed to being greeted by religious artwork such as New World, Middle East, and Masonic messages, inexplicable gargoyles, and symbols of end-of-world, foreign culture and/or beliefs. Did the designers know about ISIS and that by 2014, these regions were referred to as MENA (Middle East and North Africa) would be a threat to America?



The public, both local and the tens of thousands of daily travelers passing through the Denver terminal (terminal: curious use of that word!) were disturbed by the images. They filed a flood of complaints, all of which fell on deaf ears.  Finally, some of the most highly controversial murals were removed by late 2009 but the strange "theme" of DIA had already drawn national attention.


Even the Arts community was offended by the Blue Horse when the statue was erected during final construction in 1994. The Denver Post had this to say about the blue horse "If you are superstitious you could take this as a sign that you should possibly reconsider boarding that fuel-laden, 500 mph, plastic and aluminum airship."


Travelers see his strange red eyes glowing demonically from the highway a mile away. Even locals can't help looking at the blue mustang.  If you turn in to the Denver airport, you must pass right by the 32 foot tall blue horse with the strange eyes of death…


There's no hidden or subliminal message. Denver's blue mustang is openly known as "Bluecifer", "Satan's Steed" and "Blue Devil Horse."


By 2003 we had invaded Iraq and the world was hearing about something called ISIS.  There was more negative news coverage on the murals inside the DIA terminal which it was said, when viewed in sequence, depicted mass genocide.  There were/are Nazi-aliens stabbing the dove of peace, Muslim figures with sabers, a general death-war-eastern theme.


Local and national concerns were apparently of no concern to Denver airport designers and officials.


In 2010 the God Of Death was erected to tower ominously over arriving passengers. Some people may regard the statue of Anubis as just an odd thing to have on the way to take-off but Colorado residents were bombarded by newspaper accounts and extensive local TV coverage.


Even in one of the nation's most liberal cities, people cringed.


Anubis is the Greek name of the God Of Death and it is among the most iconic gods in ancient Egypt.  Anubis was often depicted in black, a color that symbolized both rebirth and the discoloration of the corpse after embalming.


Fortunately, Anubis was moved to another location in July and will be making further moves until the King Tut exhibit leaves Colorado in January 2011.


Denver International Airport seems to thrive on controversy. Cost overruns and missed deadlines were minor irregularities compared to reports regarding construction of the site:

  • Different contractors have been hired for different parts of the airport and all have been fired after their job was done. A strategy to insure no one company had the full scope of the project?

  • 5300 miles of fiber optics installed for communications (USA coast to coast is 3000 miles in comparison).

  • Fueling system that can pump 1000 gallons of jet fuel per minute, unheard of for a commercial airport.

  • Granite imported from all over the world even though the project was already grossly over budget.

Denver International is loaded with controversy but you know what they say, seeing is believing... and yes, you can believe the underground city below the airport! Theories abound, from safe protection for our leaders to a life-sustaining haven for major world leaders.


Major among them is this.  Since this information was originally published, the video we included is gone.  That happens but disappeared also are most of the other videos we linked to.  Take from that what you will.  The videos below are two of the best still accessible.


[1] see USA Today Cheyenne Mountain government bug-out bunker we hope it remains available.


If you have small children or big dogs, you should probably read the sensible pet owner's Disaster Survival Plan by Roberta Lee, PhD or current Emergency Preparedness information by a sitting Senator.  But first, view the few remaining videos on Denver International.
