Art of Pinocchio

Pinocchio’s fascinating fairy tale convinces me that there is more to the story than just a wooden puppet whose nose grows when he lies. It must be a rewritten variation by Walt Disney. Carlo Collodi, the author of the book Pinocchio, was a Freemason and from his educational background, he had certain esoteric knowledge that can be recognized in the symbolism of Pinocchio.

Although it has become a children’s classic, it wasn’t just written as such. In an early version, Pinocchio is hanged for his many mistakes and transgressions. In later versions, the wooden doll eventually turned into a human child. Collodi also lived out his sense of satire and allegory in the work. Reviewers concluded that the work was, in addition to being a children’s book, an allegory of the stiff society of the time and showed the contrast between respectability and formal forms and the following of the free instinct. Initially, people in the ‘better classes’ did not consider this book suitable for well-behaved children.

From the Esoteric teachings, Pinocchio is created under the influence of two characters, one male and one female (symbolizing the two aspects of God). The “Blue Fairy”, the representative of the Great God, comes down to earth to give Pinocchio a spark of the Universal Mind, “Nous” of the Gnostics, which represents our consciousness.
