Paestum or Poseidonia is an ancient greek city near Salerno in Italy. There are three temples there dated from about 550 to 450 bc. Two of them are dedicated to goddess Hera and the third to goddess Athena. Unlike in Acropolis, visitors can enter the temples, walk inside and admire them up close. In the last photo you can see one of the most famous findings of the area, a mural that was used to decorate a tomb. It shows a man diving into the unknown or maybe into the underworld.

She’s sexy and she Nose it 👃🏼👃🏼 « Before and After » Casein and pencil on canvas, Andy Warhol, 1961. The large scale pop art work is based off a tiny ad for nose jobs that ran in the National Enquirer. Love the nose you have 🖤 #SideProfileSelfie

SWIPE ⬅️ to learn the importance of “energetically digesting” higher frequencies. .
.
Just like you wouldn’t feel “guilty” about taking time to digest what you eat because it’s NECESSARY, don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for taking time to integrate. .
.
Other people who have or are currently going through an “awakening” understand integration days more than anyone, but if you are new to this process, please know that integration time is IMPERATIVE. If you don’t give yourself permission to do it, the universe will FORCE you into by manifesting a situation where you are unable to do anything other than relax and integrate. .
Many times those who run themselves ragged manifest an illness or an injury to force them to slow down, so give yourself permission to take care of yourself in whatever feels “best” for you. You can’t miss out on whatever is destined for you not can “ruin” divine plans or timing. This is a journey within our own self, first and foremost. Focus within, everything else is automatic. . #starseed #spirituality #awakening #integration #lightworkers #divinetiming #happiness #wholeness #healing #empathichealer #empath #soulwisdom #telepathy #meditation #divinefeminine #divinemasculine #ancient #galacticfederationoflight #spiritualjourney #ascension #5dliving #higherself #heartcentered #consciousness #consciousrelationships #sacredgeometry

На арабском кошачьем наречии "иди сюда" звучит  не "кис-кис", а "пш-пш". Вот так идешь, "пшикаешь" котам, которые там на каждом шагу абсолютно, и ощущение, что сейчас к тебе не котейка должен подойти, а парочка польских туристов.
Наше "кис-кис" для котов что-то как "а ну иди отсюда"! .
А двери в Тунисе - отдельная болезнь. При чем у меня.

This majestic temple complex of Preah Khan used to be a place of festivals for the rich. Over 1000 apsaras or celestial dancers are believed to have been performing here frequently.

The ancient Nuragic civilization dwelled in Sardinia during the Bronze Age: although quite unknown compared with other civilizations who lived in the Mediterranean area during the same time it left us great megalithic monuments, the “nuraghes”, fortifications similar to the castles of medieval times. 
Few things are known about these ancient folks, we don’t even know if they had writing systems but some ancient Egyptian written sources talk about the people of Shardana (very close to Sardinia, isn’t it?). This one, the “Su Nuraxi” nuraghe in Barumini, is the biggest one and is part of the UNESCO world heritage sites.

Hore Abbey | 1266 A.D. .
.
Hore Abbey was originally a Benedictine monastery, founded in 1266 just west of the town of Cashel.
.
In 1272, Archbishop David McCarvill banished the Benedictines from the monastery for a very odd and paranoid reason, he dreamed they were plotting to murder him! .
.
The remains of this 13th century monastery are delightfully gloomy, its stone walls crumbling away as plants invade the cracks between rocks.

The frescoes of Moregine depict the Muses, each appearing with her characteristic attribute, some on pedestals, others simply floating on the ochre field. This is the Muse Erato who was the protector of Love and Love Poetry – as well as wedding. Her name comes from the Greek word “Eros” that refers to the feeling of falling in love. She was depicted holding a lyre and love arrows and bows.

Treasure: 👉 Temples of Abu Simbel - 1260 BC
Civilisation: ☥ Ancient Egypt

✤ ✤ ✤
The Abu Simbel temples are two massive rock temples at Abu Simbel (Arabic: أبو سمبل‎), a village in Nubia, Upper Egypt, near the border with Sudan. They are situated on the western bank of Lake Nasser, about 230 km (140 mi) southwest of Aswan (about 300 km (190 mi) by road). The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments", which run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside in the 13th century BC, during the 19th dynasty reign of the Pharaoh Ramesses II. 
They serve as a lasting monument to the king and his queen Nefertari, and commemorate his victory at the Battle of Kadesh. Their huge external rock relief figures have become iconic.

The Great Temple at Abu Simbel, which took about twenty years to build, was completed around year 24 of the reign of Ramesses the Great (which corresponds to 1265 BC). It was dedicated to the gods Amun, Ra-Horakhty, and Ptah, as well as to the deified Ramesses himself.

It is generally considered the grandest and most beautiful of the temples commissioned during the reign of Ramesses II, and one of the most beautiful in Egypt.

Imagine This - Part 8.

The year is 332 BC. After making your way through the ancient corridors of the forgotten tomb, you finally reach the sarcophagus.

The room is covered with gilded gold that reflects light off of every surface. The long forgotten pharaoh lies within reach. Your long journey has finally ended.

As you edge closer the room grows darker. Whispers ripple through the air. You grip onto the heavy lid covering the king and push with all your might. The cover tips over and slides to the floor. Dust is thrown up and hampers your ability to see. You rub your eyes and cough to clear your lungs.

As the dust settles you finally see him.

He looks just like you.

Hadrians Wall | 122 A.D. .
.
Stretching 73 miles from coast to coast, Hadrian’s Wall was built to guard the wild north-west frontier of the Roman Empire. .
.
The Romans desperately wanted the region now known as Scotland to be part of their growing empire. However, the Scottish fighters, known as Caledonians, fought intensely. It wasn’t until Roman soldiers defeated the Caledonians, killing some 30,000 in 81 A.D., that the empire could consider at least part of Scotland under its control. Still, the Caledonians who survived Agricola’s onslaught fled into the highlands, mounting numerous attacks on the northern outpost of the empire.
.
By the time Emperor Hadrian came to power in 117 A.D., the Romans no longer sought to expand their territory. Instead, they wanted to protect what they had-so they built “The Wall”.

The Maze panel in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Vermilion Cliffs is most famous for a geological formation called the wave, but Vermilion Cliffs is also home to ancient stories told in stone. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
About 10 miles from an Ancestral Puebloan village site called “West Bench Pueblo”, near the Arizona/Utah border, is the Maze Rock petroglyph panel. It is located in a fallen jumble of sandstone boulders, overlooking a small valley of desert scrub. It features Archaic and Ancestral Puebloan petroglyphs depicting anthropomorphic, zoomorphic, and abstract designs. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The writing hints at an ancient hunting ground, where bighorn, mountain lion, deer, and other game was plentiful. There is also the image of an animal that looks suspiciously like an armadillo. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The site is noted on the National Geographic map, but the trail is unmarked and undeveloped. The site is accessible by a .5 mile meander from unpaved House Rock Road to the western face of Coyote Buttes. Before viewing the panel, we wondered if the panel may have received its name from the maze-like route through sagebrush one has to traverse in order to find the site. The BLM has proposed developing a trail to diminish the erosion caused by the braided network of footpaths being imposed on the landscape by explorers trying to find Maze. My pal Jim and I were fortunate to see the panel at a time before it is separated from its natural setting by informational kiosks. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We now know that the panel received its name because it features a large and prominent image of a maze. We both have a favorite image, that of a person wearing earrings who appears to have a ladder-like insect crossing its body. Very evocative. ⁣⁣

A large archway leads into the inner sanctuary at a long abandoned church. It is believed the building was entirely abandoned shortly after the English Reformation. This approximate timescale is backed up by the mature oak tree growing from within what was once the nave.⁣⁣

Title:

Bowl

Artist/Maker:

Unknown

Culture:

Greek

Places:

Egypt (Place Created)

Qift [Koptos], Egypt (Place Found)

Date:

300–100 B.C.

Medium:

Agate

Dimensions:

3.8 × 9.1 cm, 0.508 kg (1 1/2 × 3 9/16 in., 1.12 lb.) Wealthy Romans had a taste for luxury tableware, especially vessels made from semi-precious stones, gold, and silver. Vessels carved from various forms of chalcedony, especially agate, were very popular. Artisans carved large pieces of the stone into perfume bottles, cups, and bowls of various forms. The marbled brown and white coloring of this bowl, the translucent quality of its thin walls, and the subtle grooved decoration of the exterior are all typical features of these vessels, which were widely copied by Roman glassmakers.

This bowl was part of a group of precious stone vessels discovered near Qift (formerly Koptos) in southern Egypt. India was one of the sources for agate in antiquity, and Qift lay on the trade route that connected the Arabian Sea and the Mediterranean.

V. Ramses’in Mumyası. Yeni Krallık, 20. Hanedan, yaklaşık MÖ 1149-1145. Mızır Müzesi, Kahire.

Otuzlu yaşlarında ölen V. Ramses’in mezarı ilk olaak halefi VI. Ramses tarafından tahsis edildi. Daha sonra mumya, Deir el-Bahari’deki kraliyet mezarına taşındı. Firavunun yüzü kırmızıyla boyalı ve burun delikleri balmumuyla doluydu. Yapılan incelemelerde çiçek hastalığının belirtilerine rastlanıldı. İç organlarının bir kısmı da dahil olmak üzere mumya, talaşla doluydu.

Mummy of Ramesses V. New Kingdom, 20th Dynasty, reign of Ramesses V, ca. 1149-1145 BC. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo.

Apparently, Ramesses V died in his early thirties and this is perhaps the reason for the appropriation of his tomb by his successor, Ramesses VI. Nevertheless, the mummy later found its way to the royal cache at Deir el-Bahari. The king’s face was painted in red and his nostrils were filled with wax. The mummy shows evidence of smallpox; the neck, chest, and face were covered with raised nodules. The whole mummy was filled with sawdust, including part of his internal organs.

They have been on earth for more than 300 million years! That’s a long time. Wow, what a successful group of insects! They were here long before the birds. Some Odonata had a wingspan of 30 inches–as big as a hawk!
