Scenes from the Little Golden Shrine of King Tutankhamun and his wife Queen Ankhesenamun. This small shrine, made of wood and covered with thick gold, rests on a silver-plated sledge. The exterior and the double doors are decorated with scenes showing the king and his wife hunting and enjoying life. In one of the hunting scenes Queen Ankhesenamun hands King Tutankhamun an arrow as she points at the prey. The scenes on the double doors are surrounded by friezes of decorations, royal cartouches, and rekhyt birds. Rekhyt birds are lapwings or plovers with human arms, that symbolize all the people ruled by the king. Inside the shrine, an ebony pedestal and back pillar bearing the king's name indicated that it had once housed a statue, perhaps that of the goddess Weret-Hekau, Great of Magic, who is mentioned several times in the texts, or a statue of the king himself. Ankhesenamun was born the third of the six daughters of Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti. Although her and Tutankhamun were both children of King Akhenaten, they had different mothers and as a teenager she married her half-brother, Tutankhamun, and it is believed that before this betrothal she was married to her father. After Tutankhamun died, she was possibly forced into marriage with her grandfather. Or, she may have been killed for attempting to form a union with Kemet's number one enemy, the Hittites.

Day 10 of #virtualspringbreak - Aaah, Paris. 🇫🇷 One of my favorite cities, and one I never seem to get enough time in! Today’s tour is focused mainly on Notre Dame, which was so tragically damaged during a fire just about a year ago. These pics are from the rooftop of Notre Dame- which used to have a walkway that let you get up close to the gargoyles and see stunning views of the city. 😯 I’m so grateful that I had the chance to see these magnificent sculptures up close, and can only hope that the church will be restored to it’s former glory. 🙏♥️ •••••••••• Sharing great pics from fun vacations past for this Virtual Spring Break! If you’d like to be part of our travels, post a pic from one of your vacations to your page or stories, use the hashtag above and be sure to tag me, and I’ll share it in my stories! ••••••••••• #paris #notredame #gargoyles #rooftop #gargoyle #sculpture #church #getaway #vacationpics #virtualvacation #goodtimes #seetheworld #travelwell #vicariousvacation #springbreak #havefun #worldtraveler #jetsetwannabe #vacation #whereareyougoing #vinylcommunity

Today 80 Years ago Germany occupied Denmark and in memory of it I feel the urge to post the sculpture “Wounded Woman” by Israeli sculptor Bernard Reder. The artist Bernard Reder donated “Wounded Woman” to the Danish people in appreciation of their support during the Jews' flight from Nazi occupation in World War II. .

These are some of my earliest works in clay! I attended Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis for two years for my MFA in sculpture. I definitely ended up sneaking into the clay and glass studios more than the metals studio. Clay gave me the desired organic look and color options I sought out. I was and still am inspired by natural forms (like bones, skin, flowers, plants, rocks, etc). Meat is also a big part of my work and has been since my undergraduate years. Follow my clay Instagram @on_the_slab_ceramics to see my current work which has become much more functional in the past two years ✌🏼 #penguinfootfam #clay #ceramics #pottery #cone6 #electricfire #pots #plants #sculpture #art #oldwork #tbt #throwbackthursday

Памятник Пушкину в Брюсселе.Не то чтоб в Бельгии очень любили и восхищались творчеством Пушкина или отношения Бельгии с Россией были настолько хорошие чтоб власти страны или города сами решили поставить ему памятник.Но в 1999 году праздновалось 200 лет с рождения поэта и МИД России решил "сделать подарок" Брюсселю , на что мэрия города дала согласие. Официальное открытие состоялось 30 сентября 1999 года в присутствии министра иностранных дел Бельгии Луи Мишеля, бургомистра Брюсселя Франсуа Де Донея, министра иностранных дел России Игоря Иванова, посла России Сергея Кисляка и министра культуры России. #bruxelles #belgique #belgium #sculpture #monument #pushkin #пушкин #россия
