#Repost @all.the.stories.of.art ・・・ He wasn’t always called Tutankhamun. His parents called him Tutankhaten. It may sound very similar but there is a big difference. His father had started a new religion that only worshipped one god: Aten. All the others had to be forgotten. The priests of the old gods had been very powerful but were now stripped of all their influence. He built a new capital, far from the old temples and called his eldest son ‘the Living Image of Aten’. The priests must have been happy when Akhenaten died and his son was only nine years old. King Tut was pushed by his advisors to undo the changes his father had made. He was probably little more than a puppet king for the old priests. Eventually he would change his name to ‘the Living Image of Amun’, or Tutankhamun. Amun had been one of the old gods that had now made its come back. He was only 18 when he died and would have been completely forgotten if it wasn’t for his tomb that was found intact in 1922. This is the lid of one of the canopic jars that held the four most important organs (according to Egyptian religion that is).

In spite of its remote location in the Egyptian desert – about halfway up the Nile from Cairo to Aswan – did you know that Abydos also has a global history? 🌍 An interesting and sometimes challenging aspect of the archaeology of Abydos is the historical distribution of its material culture over two centuries of modern excavation. • We’re excited to make these #ObjectStories a regular feature of our Instagram.

I thought I’d share some of the #inspiration for the illustration I’m currently working on. I majored in classics (Latin and Ancient Greek, associated ancient civilizations) and my art often draws from ancient mythology, religion, and science. This one of a number of figurines depicting women holding snakes discovered from the ruins of the Minoan civilization, which predates the ancient Greeks. The story of King Minos and the Minotaur is one of the more well known mythologies that came from this civilization on ancient Crete. It has been hypothesized that the snake figurines may represent an ancient Mediterranean deity or priestess.

The Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens, Greece. Construction initially began around 520 BC by the Athenian tyrants with the intent of building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but the project was not completed until the 2nd Century AD during the reign of Roman Emperor Hadrian. . . . . . #ancienthistory #history #ancientworld #ancientgreece #ancientrome #ancientathens #ancientcivilization #ancientart #ancientsculpture #ancientworld #mediterraneanworld #historypictures #historypics #worldhistory #arthistory #architecture #archaeology #temple
Do you see a face ? This is Catalan architecture at its best, in fact this building the Palau de Música was made by Antonio Gaudi ‘s Mentor or teacher( Lluís Domènech i Montaner ) Apparently there is no face said the guide it was my imagination..... I’m sorry but that is ridiculous and artist that literally carved that stone edifice for years was aware that they were making the Catalan god of nature to overlook the music gallery! #light #artistlifestyle #inspiration #createcultivate #abundancemindset #architecturelovers #creativityfound #medieval #pyranees #cathars #pattern #powerofthemind #contempoaryart #barcelona #gothicquarter #ecodesign #natural #symbol #ancientart #carveouttimeforart #livecreatively #leaves #nature #curiosities #naturalhistory #beuty #barca #barcalona #architecture #maxamalist

I love sycamore trees there are so many of them in Europe especially in the ancient mediaeval towns they live long grow tall are very hearty for cold and even snowy weather and can take the heat of long dry summers also their bark is mesmerizing and their leaves eco-print really well #ecodesign #natural #leaves #nature #inspiration #curiosities #naturalhistory #beuty #abundancemindset #barca #livecreatively #medieval #powerofthemind #ancientart #gothicquarter #southfrance #ecodye #ecofashion #ecoprinting #sustainablefashion

Il tempio / The Temple Per i Greci il tempio esprimeva un'idea di bellezza e armonia tra le parti, per questo alla sua costruzione partecipavano i più abili architetti del tempo. Presso il cantiere, le maestranze prima sbozzavano i blocchi facendo assumere loro la forma desiderata, poi con funi e carrucole, li collocavano nel punto stabilito dall'architetto. L'esterno del tempio veniva decorato da rilievi e sculture; i rilievi ornavano sia il frontone che il fregio. Il tempio più ammirato dell'acropoli di Atene fu sicuramente il Partenone. Ciò che rendeva questo edificio il caposaldo dell'arte greca era soprattutto la ricchezza delle sue decorazioni, superiori a qualsiasi edificio mai costruito. L'artista chiamato a dirigere questo immenso cantiere fu lo scultore Fidia, uno dei più grandi artisti di tutti i tempi. ---------------------------- For Greeks the temple expressed the idea of ​​beauty and harmony between the parts, for this reason the most skilled architects of the time participated in its construction. At the construction site, the workers first struck the blocks by taking the shape they wanted, then with ropes and pulleys, placing them at the point established by the architect. The exterior of the temple was decorated with reliefs and sculptures; the reliefs decorated both the pediment and the frieze. The most admired temple of the acropolis in Athens was undoubtedly the Parthenon. What made this building the cornerstone of Greek art was above all the richness of its decorations, superior to any building ever built. The artist called to direct this huge construction site was the sculptor Fidia, one of the greatest artists of all time. #greece #greek #grecia #athens #tempio #temple #history #story #ancientgreece #anticagrecia #english #italian #fidia #pericle #partenone #parthenon #ancientart #archaeology #contemporaryart #modernart #curiosity #iniquity #unique #unico #medievalart #archeologia #masterpiece
