Adorable Antiquities are branching out into new types of art. I loved making this project. It was a nice refresher before I start remaking the sold out ornaments. .

The original selfie. Fun fact: did you know that back in the Hellenistic era, pursing your lips was a sign of being an asshole? 🦆 #ducklips #ancienttimes #ancientgreece #selfies #livingthedrea
Amazing piece of human history
Item 63: As the ancient Greeks knew, there's nothing like a classy wine tasting event to help you relax after a busy week. Play a game of kottabos at an upscale wine tasting event; all participants must, of course, be dressed in white. https://youtu.be/h3uFbkDPWGU
At the end of the Sounio Peninsula at the southernmost point of Attica, lies the Temple of Poseidon within a fort that protects the coast of Attica. Made entirely of white marble, it was erected in the middle of the 5th century BC and built to honour Poseidon, god of the sea.

The writings of Marcus Aurelius, conventionally known as Meditations, are unique in Classical literature. He did not, as far as we know, intend for them to be considered for publication. Marcus wrote for himself, probably without title and certainly without planned structure. Therefore the structure of this book holds no authenticity, in the sense that they are a collection of writings which have been ordered by various academics into a series of smaller books. He also wrote in Greek because in the second century AD Greek was still the language of philosophy - read, written and spoken by most educated Romans. I've decided to devote an entire notebook to perhaps the most interesting figure in history (a bold claim I know!). He is one of those consoling and hope-inspiring stoic voices whose words still hold weight today. . . . . . . . . . . #outdoors #adventure #travel #wanderlust #literature #bibliophile #linguaphile #classics #classical #aesthete #aesthetic #polymath #study #philosophy #bookstagram #romanhistory #ancientgreece #writersofinstagram #stoic #stoicism
Wasn’t expecting to do research for Swallows Part Two until later this week when I arrive in Sicily ... but serendipitous symbols surface everywhere in Europe. ___ #serendipity #swallowscomic #ancientgreece #history #berlin #art #drawing
Whether they rode in litters carried by men in livery, in ornate horse-drawn carriages, or later in cars, popes have always travelled in style. Papal vehicles from 1825 to the present day are on display at updated exhibition at the Musei Vaticani that spans nearly two centuries of papal travel. The most extravagant on display is the Berlina di Gran Gala, built in 1826 for Pope Leo XII. It is essentially a mobile throne-room made of wood with inlays painted in gold leaf. As ornate was it was, apparently it was not ornate enough for Pope Gregory XVI, who in 1841 added gold-colored angels and statues of two children holding up a tiara and keys -- symbols of papal power. It was pulled through the streets of 19th century Rome by six horses, each bearing riders dressed in fine livery with papal stems stitched on by golden thread. "These vehicles from the first ones still in the times of horses to the last ones, the modern cars, show that the pope is a man who lives in the midst of his people” said Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello.

Turkey trip really reminds me about my Greece trip 2 years ago. They seems close but also so different. Love the Aegean culture and Ancient Greek culture as well #athens #ancientgreece #summervacation #sunshine
Bu ihtişamlı yapı milattan önce 5. yüzyılda Yunan tanrıçası Athena için inşa edilmiştir. Partenon Antik Yunan'dan günümüze kalan yapılar arasında en iyi bilinenidir ve Yunan mimarisinin en büyük eseri olarak kabul edilir. Dış cephesinde kullanılan heykeltıraşlığın Yunan sanatının en yüksek noktası olduğu düşünülür. Dünyanın en büyük kültürel abidelerinden biri olarak Partenon ayrıca Antik Yunan'ın ve Atina demokrasisinin de sembolüdür. // This gorgeous structure was completed in 438 BC and dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, generally considered the zenith of the Doric order. Its decorative sculptures are considered some of the high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and Athenian democracy. rightholidays.com // 0208 66 11 805⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Haringey Branch: 445 Green Lanes, Haringey, London, N4 1HA⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stoke Newington Branch: 59 Stoke Newington High Street, London, N16 8EL⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . .⠀ #beautifuldestinations #wanderlust #travelagency #rightholidays #doğruseçim #greek #travelphotography #travelgram #athena #postcardsfromtheworld #greece #globetrotters #travelingworld #gezelim #gezgin #travelmore #greekmythology #yunanistan #greekarchitecture #traveltheworld #athens #greekart #tourtheplanet #instatravel #bestplacetogo #discoverglobe #roamtheplanet #spiritual #discovergreece #ancientgreece

“In silence, through hard discipline, self-mastery, and self-overcoming, with tenacious and brisk individual effort, we must create an elite in whom ‘solar’ Wisdom is revived: that virtus which cannot be spoken, which rises from the depths of feelings and the soul and is not proved with arguments and books but with creative acts.” - Julius Evola, Pagan Imperialism . The Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheion, Athens, 421–407 BC . #oldeurope #ancientgreece #sculpture #europeanmythology #erechtheion #temple #nativefaith #architecture #europeanarchitecture #defendeurope #tradition #occult #europa #europe #mythos #symbolism #culture #nationalism #europeanculture #art #pagan #evola #paganimperialism #revoltagainstthemodernworld #aesthetic #history #europeanart #european #ideal #elite

#OnThisDay in 480 BC it is possible that the Battle of Thermopylae was fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and the Persian Empire of Xerxes I. https://t.co/1NKYPQUhZs #lego #legos #legostagram #legobricks #thermopylae #otd #history #classics #heritage #historic #historical #legomoc #moc #afol #minifigs #minifigures #legominifigures #legominifigs #battle #300 #sparta #greece #ancientgreece #persia
Beautiful architecture in Athens, Greece 🇬🇷
Interior of Villa Kerylos. Built in the early 1900s by French archaeologist Theodore Reinarch, who admired the art, architecture and interior decoration of the ancient world and decided to recreate the atmosphere of a luxurious Greek temple/villa by the sea on the tip of the Baie des Fourmis at Beaulieu sur Mer. #southoffrance #villakerylos

🌚 The Zeno and Perseus coin in antique silver on a white gold effect chain. • £20 each, if you would like to stack your necklaces I would suggest a 15 inch chain and an 18 inch one so they sit nicely together. If not chains are available in 15, 16, 17 and 18 inch. • Stainless steel chain and zinc alloy coins, Silver plated. • Perseus was the greatest Greek hero and slayer of monsters, Zeno was the founder of Stoic philosophy; Stoicism laid great emphasis on goodness and peace of mind gained from living a life of Virtue in accordance with Nature. • DM for purchase ✌🏽 #jewellery #jewelry #silvernecklace #coins #greece #antiquecoins #ancientgreece #greek #coinnecklace #handmade #custom #silver #necklace #necklaces #jewelrydesigner #jewelrymaking #jewellerydesign
