🐣 Happy Easter! 🐰 Not a Christian? That's ok, Easter pre-dates Christianity anyway, just enjoy the time off to spend with friends, family, furries and loved ones. 😊 I've always found the symbolic mish-mash of Easter interesting. Eggs are a symbol of life, renewal and fertility, and rabbits seem to be leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess symbolised by a hare or rabbit. Before celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, Pagans observed the Spring Equinox as the return of the Sun God - the rebirth of light and emergence from the cold winter. For thousands of years Iranians have celebrated Nowruz, the Iranian New Year that falls on the Spring Equinox by decorating eggs. I personally love the constellation stories that align with religious festivals, in this case the general symbolic story of the death of the son (Sun), on a cross (The Southern Cross) and the rebirth, (overcoming the powers of darkness) is a well worn story in the ancient world. Similar stories can be traced through ancient history, Inanna, or Ishta, a Sumerian goddess, was hung on a stake, resurrected and ascended from the underworld; Horus, the Egyptian God born on December 25, whos damaged eye became a symbol of life and rebirth; Mithras, also born on Xmas Day and celebrated on the Spring Equinox; Dionysus, the divine child resurrected by his grandmother... starting to sounds a little familiar? In the Old Testament Israelites were baking cakes and sweet buns for idols and religious leaders and early clergy tried to put a stop to it, but in the face of defiant cake-baking Pagan women they ended up blessing the cakes instead, ergo the Hot Cross bun! For me it's enough that the celebrations are not fixed and are governed by the moon - The Council of Nicaea in 325 decreed that Easter should be observed on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox - doesn't get much more Pagan than that!

Some surface level google info about pagan Easter which has NO RELATION to TMH GOD. I know y'all love y'all pastors and ya whole family been celebrating these silly holidays since yall can remember but its ok to stop and learn where you come from. BLACK PEOPLE WE HAVE A HERITAGE AND OUR OWN CULTURE but Easter neither Cinco de Mayo or 4th of July and so forth is it. Please stop praising everybody else and take the time to learn where YOU come from, which white people systematically manipulated and destroyed.

Delphi, Greece (2009). A place that inspires fantasy novels and mythological video games. Delphi was the home to the Temple of Apollo in 4th century BC. The temple housed the oracle Pythia. History claims she would get real messed up on a local supply of herbs and tell prophecies on behalf of Apollo during certain celestial seasons. Cool shit in Delphi also shown: • Mount Parnassus. • An ancient theater. • A rock symbolizing the "Earth's Navel" which is said to be the center of the world. • An athletic stadium which held contests/games every four years inspiring the first official Olympics at Olympia. • & me with hair. #happy420 #420 #tripballstellprophecies #wanderlust #ancienthistory #apollo #travel #mythology #greekmythology #latergram #ihadhair at Oracle Of Delphi - Athens Greece

Sharing this amazing ring post from @gettyvilla and a fascinating #onthisday in history... In Greco-Roman mythology, Aeneas (Αἰνείας, Aineías, possibly derived from Greek αἰνή meaning "praised") was a Trojan hero, the son of the prince Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite. His father was a first cousin of King Priam of Troy (both being grandsons of Ilus, founder of Troy), making Aeneas a second cousin to Priam's children (such as Hector and Paris). He is a character in Greek mythology and is mentioned in Homer's Iliad. In Virgil’s Aeneid, Aeneas is cast as an ancestor of Romulus and Remus. He became the first true hero of Rome. #Repost @gettyvilla ・・・ Rome was believed to have been founded #onthisday. On this engraved gem, Aeneas flees from his besieged home of Troy. He will travel west across the Mediterranean to settle just south of Rome, and his encounters and struggles are recounted in the Roman poet Virgil’s famous epic, the Aeneid. This gem succinctly conveys Aeneas's responsibilities to both the past and the future. He carries his aged father Anchises on his back as a smaller figure, probably his son, tugs at his arm. Engraved gem set in a modern ring, 1st century A.D., Roman. Gem: carnelian; Ring: gold. #getty #gettyvilla #gettyinspired #roman #rome #italy #mythology #troy #aeneas #ancient

Excursions that managed to sneak into the area where the pyramids are discovered numerous anomalies like a metallic material which could not be identified by researchers. The Pyramids are believed to be over 8,000 years old. Are the Pyramid of China among the largest on the planet? According to many, one of the Pyramids — kept a secret for years — in China is so large that the Great Pyramid of Giza seems like a miniature monument. The story of the Chinese pyramid began at the end of the Second World War when American pilot James Gaussman was about to complete a resupply mission to the forces of the Chinese Army. Suddenly, a fault in the aircraft engine forced him to return to the Assam base located in northern India, for safety reasons, he decided to fly at a lower altitude. Shortly after flying over the city of Xi’an, heading southwest, the pilot encountered what looked like a gigantic pyramid. Surprised, after making several passes over the humongous structure, he decided to take a number of photographs, which later included a detailed report which were handed to his superiors as soon as he returned to base. The incident was forgotten among the files of the US Air Force until 40 years later, the ‘Great Pyramid of China’ was brought back to light through the work of Australian writer Brian Crowley, who published one of the photographs of the Pyramid in his book. It is noteworthy to mention that these dimensions would make the Chinese Pyramid the largest one ever discovered on Earth, dwarfing the Great Pyramid of Giza with a mere 147 meters in height and 320 meters in width. But the mystery behind the Pyramid of China is even more fascinating. According to reports, numerous European excursions managed to take samples of objects and metals around the Pyramids of China. Analysis showed that these structures could be well over 8,000 years old, but the most fascinating detail isn’t the age of the Pyramids: Interestingly, the metallic material present at the Pyramids has not been identified so far; since it is made out of materials that are unknown to modern science. at Xian, China

we have new jewelry coming up tomorrow and/or monday, but meanwhile i’ll flaunt this incredible thing Vilma made! it’s Senet, the ancient egyptian board game dating back to at least five thousand years. the game represents the journey of the ka spirit to the afterlife. the original rules of Senet are a subject of conjecture amongst scholars, but working gameplays have been established - we have played it ourselves, and it was quite fun. Vilma made this floral themed set as a gift for a family member. she painted the board on wood, and even made the five dice, pieces and a matching box for them. now i’m jealous as we can’t keep it ourselves! ♟ . . . #senet #ancientegypt #boardgamegeek #ancientgame #flowerslovethedark #handmadecraft #ancientegyptian #hieroglyphs #boardgaming #darkaesthetic #anubis #bookofthedead #mystical #ancienthistory #handmadegames #egyptianmythology #diygames #boardgame #witchy

Life Before on Mars: This picture is NOT Earth and Mars. It is Mars...and Mars long ago. Mars was not the red planet because it used to be blue. Mars used to look just like its sister planet...Earth. If Mars truly is the dry and cold environment we are shown, are we also looking at Earth’s future? Could Mars have experienced similar climate change, which destroyed its water and vegetation? Did a species like ours have a way of life there that destroyed the planet’s atmosphere? Because if Mars had life like Earth...when we look at it, are we looking not just at our future, but also at our past too?

la Puerta de Ishtar, una de las ocho puertas monumentales de la muralla interior de Babilonia. Decorada con animales de colores brillantes sobre un fondo azul vidriado, fue levantada a comienzos del siglo VI a.C. por Nabucodonosor II al norte de la espléndida ciudad de Babilonia, cuyas ruinas están situadas a unos 100 kilómetros al sur de Bagdad. Estaba consagrada a Ishtar, la diosa babilónica del amor y la guerra, y daba acceso al templo de Marduk, el señor de los dioses, a través de una avenida procesional decorada con relieves de leones y dragones, símbolos de Ishtar y Marduk.

Built upon the highest peak in the Judean Desert circa 20BC, Herodium was once the palace-fortress of King Herod the Great. In 132AD, during the Bar Kokhba revolt aka the Third Jewish-Roman War, the palace served as the headquarters of Simon bar Kokhba and the Jewish rebels. This extensive subterranean tunnel system was dug into the mountain under the fortress and served as means clandestine movement and resupply for the rebels. at Bethlehem, West Bank

By @masoudup Location: Iran, The Azadi Tower (Persian: برج آزادی‎, Borj-e Āzādi; "Freedom Tower"), formerly known as the Shahyad Tower (برج شهیاد, Borj-e Šahyād; "Shah's Memorial Tower"), is a monument located on Azadi Square in Tehran, Iran. It is one of the landmarks of Tehran, marking the west entrance to the city, and is part of the Azadi Cultural Complex, which also includes a museum underground. The tower is about 45 metres (148 ft) tall and is completely clad in cut marble.[1][2] It was commissioned by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, to mark the 2,500th year of the foundation of the Imperial State of Iran. Tehran is the capital of Iran, in the north of the country. Its central Golestan Palace complex, with its ornate rooms and marble throne, was the seat of power of the Qajar dynasty. The National Jewelry Museum holds many of the Qajar monarchs’ jewels, while the National Museum of Iran has artifacts dating back to Paleolithic times. The Milad Tower offers panoramic views over the city. #traveling #travelphotography #iran #lonelyplanet #persian  #travelblogger #iran🇮🇷 #azaditower #ancientcity #photogram #photographie #artistic #streetart #artistsofinstagram #instacolor #artist #theartofplating #ancienthistory #architecture #ancient #instatraveller #nightphotos #trip #nightphotography #tehran #historic #ourcity #ourplace #bbctravel #cnntravel at برج آزادی Azadi Tower

The Draco In The Roman Army ➖ The title of "Draconarius" was given to Roman standard bearers who carried the Draco, which was adopted by the beginning of the 2nd century AD during the Principate, although it is possible it was used earlier. The Draco was a peculiar standard of Sarmatian origin, who were a nomadic Iranian people living in the Steppe famed for their cavalry. --- At the top of the Draco was a bronze dragon-like animal with a gaping jaw, behind which was a colorful windstock. When moving at a sufficient pace, the standard bearer could cause the Draco's stock to fill up in the wind, creating an impression of an aggressive, serpent-like creature. By the mid 4th century AD we hear of purple Draco's accompanying emperors on the field, which may have been normal. --- The Draco was first carried by some Auxiliary cavalry units, usually on parade but also on the field, and was likely adopted after contact with the Sarmatians, perhaps during the 1st century AD. The standard appears to have gradually become more popular in the army and was used still during Late Antiquity. However we simply cannot reconstruct any exact chronology of for how long the Romans used this standard. --- #Rome #Roma #RomanArmy #RomanLegion #Auxilia #Draco #Standard #RomanEmpire #SPQR #History #RomanHistory #AncientHistory #MilitaryHistory

Visited one of the big mansions in my neighbourhood today. This house was the 'holidayhome' of a nobel family in the past. I'm always wondering what the 'normal' people thought, there was a lot of poverty, and the difference between rich and poor was big. The last nobel dat lived here did write 3 books about living there around 1910.

Temple of Apollo | Corinth | Greece —————————————- The temple of Apollo at Corinth is one of the earliest Doric temples in the Greek mainland and one of the few standing Archaic Greek Temples in the world. The temple built around 560 B.C. It was peripteral, surrounded by a pteron of 42 monolithic, limestone columns, over 7 m. high. In the Roman period the Temple of Apollo was renovated in order to house the cult of the Emperor. In the Ottoman period a residence of the local Turkish Bey was built on top of its crepis. Today only seven standing columns of the western pteron and part of the crepis and its foundations are preserved. . . . . . #ancient #corinth #ancienthistory #ancientgreece #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancientworld #archaeological #archaeologicalsite #archaeologist #archaeology #museum #archeologia #archeology #architecture #art #arthistory #fineart #greece #ig_greece #architecturephotography #history #explorer #explore #travelphotography #travel #temple #monument #landscape #landscapephotography
