### 33 | Seattle Art Museum and the Labor Day Tribute

The Seattle Art Museum better known as the "SAM" features an annual tribute to Labor Day when Hammering Man, the giant sculpture always swinging his hammer, comes to rest, for his one day of the year.
• SAM = 19+1+13 = 33
• Labor Day = 3+1+2+6+9+4+1+7 = 33

Can you guess what year the Seattle Art Museum was opened?  If you said 1933, you guessed right!  With regards to the number "33", it is often found paired with "39".  In this case, the word "art" has a Gematria of "39".
• Art = 1+18+20 = 39
As it happens, the number 39 has had a negative impact on Hammering Man in his short-life.  On December 5, 1991, the SAM reopened after a \$62-million remodel completed by Robert Venturi.  To the behest of the museum, it had to reopen without the debut of Hammering Man because it was damaged on September 28, 1991, when it fell, was damaged, and had to be returned to the foundry in Connecticut for repairs .

Hammering Man was used in a guerrilla art installation on Labor day in 1993 when Jason Sprinkle and other local artists attached a 700 lb (320 kg) ball and chain to the leg of the sculpture.  In 1994 the Volunteer Park facility reopened as the Seattle Asian Art Museum. In 2007 the Olympic Sculpture Park opened to the public, culminating an 8-year process.
• Jason Sprinkle = 1+1+1+6+5+1+7+9+9+5+2+3+5 = 55
• 12/5/1991 = 1+2+5+1+9+9+1 = 28, the complete cycle
• 9/28/1991 = 9+2+8+1+9+9+1 = 39
• Robert = 9+6+2+5+9+2 = 33
• Venturi = 22+5+5+2+3+9+9 = 55
• Robert Venturi = 33+55 = 88
The word Olympic also has "39" numerology.  From my own life and time living in Seattle, I was once spooked when I leaned against a massive steel wall near the end of the sculpture park, and a security camera focused on me, and then a voice spoke, "Move away from the wall".  It was a police, watching through the camera.  Right then I said, "Welcome to 2012".
• Olympic = 6+3+7+4+7+9+3 = 39
Hammering Man, weighing in at 22,000 pounds, was sculpted by Jonathan Borofsky.
• Borofsky = 2+6+9+6+6+1+2+7 = 39
• Hammering Man was part of \$62-million remodel
• Hammering Man  = 8+1+4+4+5+9+9+5+7+4+1+5 = 62
Personally, from studying Gematria, when I see the number 62, I think of the word "think" and the duality and at the same time, synonymous, between "think" and "God".
• Think = 20+8+9+14+11 = 62
• God = 7+15+4 = 26
