Reincarnation Cases of Jean-Antoine Houdon | Gutzon Borglum & the

Chief Sculptor of the Abu Simbel Temples of Egypt


Revealed by: Ahtun Re in a Ryerson-Semkiw Reincarnation Research Session

Mount Rushmore Sculptor Gutzon Borglum as the Reincarnation of Abu Simbel Temple Artist

I was watching a program on the construction of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, which was driven by the passion of Danish-American artist Gutzon Borglum, who is pictured below and to the left.  Images are inverted to better appreciate bone structure or facial architecture.  Since we tend to repeat patterns across lifetimes, I thought it would be interesting to investigate past lives for this individual, who was fascinated with creating gigantic monuments of national heroes.

Ahtun Re revealed that Borglum was the chief sculptor and artist of the Abu Simbel temples, massive rock temples also carved from mountains.  Like Mount Rushmore, huge sculptures of national leaders, such as Pharaoh Ramses II, as wellas of Egyptian religious deities, were created.  The Abu Simbel temples were constructed around 1250 BCE and Mount Rushmore can be considered a modern version of Abu Simbel.








Gutzon Borglum as Reincarnation of Jean-Antoine Houdon:

Sculptures of Washington & Jefferson Across Two Lifetimes

Ahtun Re also revealed a more recent incarnation of Gutzon Borglum as Jean-Antoine Houdon, who lived from 1741 to 1828. Houdon, pictured above and to the right, was famous for doing sculptures and busts of leaders of the Enlightenment, including political leaders such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Louis XVI, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. As such, if this reincarnation case is accepted, Houdon did a famous statue and bust of George Washington, as well as of Jefferson, then reincarnated as Borglum to create gigantic busts of these same individuals, Jefferson and Washington, on Mount Rushmore.

As such, across three lifetimes there is a pattern of doing sculptures of national heroes. In the Egyptian and Borglum incarnations, the creation of gigantic sculptures of national leaders is observed. Images of sculptures of the Abu Simbel temples and Mount Rushmore are provided below:









If these cases are accepted, they demonstrate the following features:

Principles of Reincarnation

Physical Resemblance in Reincarnation Cases: Jean-Antoine Houdon and Gutzon Borglum share similar facial features.

Innate Talent: In three incarnations a talent for sculpture is demonstrated, with an interest in immortalizing national heroes and leaders. In the Egyptian and Borglum incarnations, this soul created sculptures of monumental size, which resulted in the creation of the Abu Simbel temples and the Mount Rushmore memorial.

Change in Nationality and Ethnic Affiliation: This soul has had incarnations in Ancient Egypt and, as Houdon, in France.  Borglum was of Danish-American heritage.
