Crowning Stain glassed pinnicle of Kazahkstan's new Pyramid

Kazahkstan's new Pyramid "built in a rush — barely 22 months from conception to construction — for a Triennial Congress of World Religions".* It was designed by Lord Norman Foster, "he recently designed Swiss Re's London Headquarters also known as the "Gherkin"."**

"Swiss Re (Schweizerische Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft AG, SIX: RUKN) is the world’s second-largest reinsurer, after having acquired GE Insurance Solutions (Ligi 2006). Founded in 1863, Swiss Re operates through offices in more than 25 countries. General Electric owns 8.9% of the firm.
The Swiss Reinsurance Company was the lead insurer of the World Trade Center during September 11 attacks which led to an insurance dispute with the owner, Silverstein Properties."**

Norman Foster recently received the Pour le Mérite. "The Pour le Mérite, known informally during World War I as the Blue Max (German: Blauer Max), was the Kingdom of Prussia's highest military order until the end of World War I."**

Some people say that the oft-called Maltese cross, and most crosses represent a Pyramid as viewed from above

Original Pyramid and reference found here on The Secret Sun in our opinion one of the best blogs on the net.
