/> , which contains Mideast artifacts obtained by the man whose life was
the inspiration for Indiana Jones. Antonio Futterer was an Australian
third-grade dropout who caught Gold Rush fever, found God as a young
man, and moved to Oakland in the early 20th century, where, according to
L.A. Times history-writer Cecilia Rasmussen, Futterer developed and
copyrighted what he called the “Eye-Ographic Bible,” a sort of Cliffs
Notes for the Old Testament. The simplified text includes maps, slides,
pictures and intricate genealogical charts. What he called the
Eye-Ographic chart covers almost an entire wall. The canvas chart is
composed of lines, dots, numbers and names to take in the Biblical epic
at a glance. This project will sound very familiar to all you fans of
one of my favorite books, The Timechart History of the World
&categoryid= 51&searchstr= PB2967&itemname= The%20Timechart% 20History% 20of%\
20the%20World> . Futterer made his way to boomtown L.A. in the 1920s,
befriended people like psycho-religious genius Aimee Semple MacPherson
and Henry Ford, and in 1926 launched his first expedition in search of
the lost Ark of the Covenant. He wrote travel books about Palestine ,
opened a house museum in Silver Lake , worked with the movie companies,
delivered the world’s longest sermon. The museum, which is directly
across the street from ex-Tabloid editor Charles Hornberger, includes
artifacts from all over the biblical lands, including “centuries-old
furniture inlaid with mother of pearl, 5,000-year-old oil lamps, ivory
and silver Mideastern jewelry, tapestries, and a 2,700-year-old
sarcophagus, ” according to Rasmussen. Tours , which are only conducted
in groups, last two hours, and are skewed depending on which ancient
religion you favor. The people there are very nice; I would estimate
that 99.9% of all L.A. residents have never heard of the place.
