The restoration of the former Masonic Scottish Rite Temple designed by the late architect and artist Millard Sheets, at 4357 Wilshire Boulevard, is almost complete. Soon the Masons will be back. Masons use the metaphor of stonemasons' tools and implements, against the allegorical backdrop of the building of King Solomon's Temple, to convey what they see as "a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols." That explains a lot of this. ~ Thursday, August 4, 2016
