Photo by: @renaeffendiphoto Excavations from the commoners cemetery of the ancient city built by Akhenaten, 18th Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh (1300s BC) revealed that people were buried on the desert floor, where few markers or grave goods have been found. Elaborate braids on a skull reflected the care that residents took with their appearance, despite difficult conditions. Near the city of Minya, modern Egyptians still honor their dead by building permanent structures—such as a cemetery of domed roofs and limestone walls. At the ancient site of Amarna, the elite prepared elaborate tombs that were carved high into the cliffs east of the city. #antiquity#ancient#egypt#artefacts#legacy#history // For more human interest stories please follow: @renaeffendiphoto @natgeocreative @thephotosociety
Image from a book about Oceanic Art. This is an Ancestral Skull from the Papuan Gulf and stolen in 19th/20th Century. It’s in a collection now of a coloniser. Very sad for the descendants of this Ancestor and the Ancestor spirit #colonisers#rapeandpillage#artefacts#oceana#png

Dr Robert Elgood who lectures on the Islamic and Indian art modules @soasdiplomainasianart has written two fascinating & important volumes, reflecting forty years of research on 'Rajput Arms and Armour, The Rathores & Their Armoury At Jodhpur Fort'. Guy Wilson former Master of the Royal Armouries @thetoweroflondon says: 'This is a book to shake the foundations of our understanding of Indian arms'. These volumes reclaim the Hindu contribution to Indian military culture in the Mughal period. From the 16th C Rajputs rulers married their daughters to the Mughal emperors and were crucial allies of the dynasty but though they adopted Persian culture they retained their own warrior tradition with its roots in Vedic practice. The Rajputs worshipped violent goddesses who required blood sacrifices and alcohol. These warriors (kshatriya) took prodigious amounts of opium and sacrificed themselves to the goddess on the battlefield in order to gain warrior Heaven. Believing it was disgraceful for a warrior to die in bed of natural causes, old men, survivors of countless battles, would send word to their enemies to meet them and, after politely sharing a drink, would hack each other to death. A warrior’s sword was his most prized possession, guardian of his honour and women, the means of achieving fame and spiritual release, a temple for the Goddess to inhabit and make efficacious. The Jodhpur armoury is a portal enabling us to enter an unfamiliar world of great courage, self-sacrifice and honour. Robert Elgood has lectured at the British Museum, the Wallace Collection, SOAS, the V&A and all over the world & is frequently consulted on aspects of weapons history by leading global institutions.

More Egyptian Burial Artefacts pointing perhaps to high technology, as Michael Tellinger observes similar items further South on the African Peninsula, he states "These are critical pieces of the puzzle that point to advanced ancient technology using sound and SASER technology by the ancient civilisations that occupied this part of the world as far back as 300,000 years ago." @ubuntu_planet #ancient#technology#artefacts#burial#egypt#coneshapedtools#saser
Oh #France , for all your talk of liberal values, you show #signs of your #truecolours#tricolour .
In your marquee #artmuseum , the #Louvre , you dedicate just two chambers to #Africa , the continent you eviscerated, giving just the date and country of origin for #artefacts provided, devoid of any context when you can conjure up context for items thousands of years older in other sections of the #museum . You juxtapose the continent alongside Asia, Oceania and the Americas - geographies that have nothing to do with one another, other than that they too (separated from the ancient Near East and Islamic civilisations) are given no space. The chambers are difficult to find, located as they are, in an unannounced basement for which no signage is provided by the stairs one needs to descend. .
You do remember your #Antilles#colonies , however, at the #TourEiffel#eiffeltower , giving their tallest structures prominence because they compare unfavourably with yours.
At the Grand #Mosque , you tell #women to pray by where men defecate.
THE largest library about Indonesia does not lie in the country itself. It is three thousand kilometers away from here in Leiden, the Netherlands. It's such a shame for such a big nation to be unable or deliberately neglect most of its invaluable past inheritances. -
The kingdom has recently established its own Asian Library which holds an enormous collection of Asian artefacts such as illustrations, maps, pictures and manuscripts kept well in the high-security library building. But now all of these are digitized, enabling all of us to access the richness of the past within some clicks away on our own gadgets. .
