Sketched this a couple of years ago when I witnessed this scene on my way to the canteen at the British Museum and now really looking forward to the Ashurbanipal exhibition in November 👌More cleaning in store for the winged bulls I imagine 😉 .

Tiwanaku World Heritage Site...The ruins of an ancient city state near the southeastern shore of Lake Titikaka; monumental architecture testimony of the greatest civilisation in South America. #tiwanakuruins #tiwanaku #ancientruins #ancientcivilisations #bolivia #boliviatourguide #marielasbolivia #ilovemyjob #oldcitiesarethebestcities #instatravel #travelpics #travelphotography #travelblogger #southamerica #archaeology #worldheritagesite
Se esiste al mondo un sito megalitico che può portare acqua al mulino di James Churchward e degli altri sostenitori dell'esistenza di una grande civiltà esistente migliaia di anni fa nell'Oceano Pacifico, scomparsa in seguito a un devastante cataclisma, quello è senza dubbio Gunung Padang, nella parte occidentale dell'isola di Java. Scoperto nel 1914 e ad oggi considerato il sito archeologico più esteso ed antico dell'Asia sud-orientale, inizialmente fu ritenuto non più antico di 5000 anni, e la collina su cui sorge fu erroneamente scambiata per un altopiano naturale. In seguito ai lavori sul campo dagli anni Quaranta ad oggi, tuttavia, gli archeologi hanno realizzato che l'altura é stata modellata dall'uomo -- ragion per cui alcuni la definiscono "la più antica struttura piramidale esistente sulla Terra" -- a più riprese, e hanno individuato ben cinque strati successivi. I rilevamenti con il metodo del carbonio-14 hanno confermato che la parte superficiale del sito data a circa 5000 anni fa, epperò gli strati inferiori sono molto più antichi: il secondo è stato datato a 7000 anni fa, il terzo a 12000, il quarto a 17000 e il quinto e ultimo strato addirittura a 24000 anni fa. Per dare un'idea approssimativa, Gunung Padang sarebbe 12000 anni più antico del sito cerimoniale di Göbekli Tepe e la costruzione ebbe inizio quasi 20000 anni prima di Stonehenge e delle piramidi egizie. Tutto ciò ovviamente contrasta fortemente con la visione accademica concernente la diffusione della "civiltà" e dell'uomo stesso, che fino a poco tempo fa si riteneva giunto in quest'area solo pochi millenni orsono; nondimeno le rilevazioni scientifiche del sito sembrano confermare teorie "altre", come quelle teosofiche che inquadrano la storia dell'umanità all'interno di una successione di cicli cosmici terminati in apocalittici cataclismi o come quella dell'esploratore norvegese Thor Heyerdahl, che a metà del secolo scorso teorizzò l'esistenza di una "civiltà oceanica" altamente evoluta in grado, migliaia di anni fa, di portare la propria cultura -- incentrata sulla navigazione, l'agricoltura e il megalitismo -- da una parte all'altra dei due oceani, Atlantico e Pacifico.

Mohenjodaro (which means mound of the dead) and Harappa were two of such mounds. People living near these found old bricks and saw parts of the old walls. This was assumed to be a place where people once lived. What authenticates our findings? Where do we verify our assumptions for places swept along with dust? How do we plot our history?  #backtoroots #ancientcivilisations #indianhistory

The wind blows mud and sand over the crumbles and the rain makes the mud stick to the buildings. Mounds are formed over the ruins and moss begins to grow. How do we trace the ruins then? Does it mean the nature wipes off its own history?  #indianhistory #ancientcivilisations #backtoroots

Buildings begin to crumble sometime after people leave cities and villages deserted. How does one find an old city beneath the ground?  #ancientcivilisations #backtoroots #indianhistory

With an exponential surplus, many villages extended into cities and the crafts were interchanged through trade. The city civilization of the Indus thus emerged from the village life of an earlier period. Does this mean all the villages expanded to become cities? If so, where do we look for its traces?  #ancientcivilisations #backtoroots #indianhistory

What decides the naming of certain places as “villages” and “cities”? Is the difference as simple as one being rustic and the other being a civilized space? If so, how does one define a city civilization?
We can try to find answers to these in the early settlements and how it shaped the cities we live in today.

Not a bad way to spend a Monday. Watching the sunrise from the summit of this majestic site, then admiring the structure from the base Kāmadhātu (the world of desire), the middle platforms representing Rupadhatu(the world of forms) and the final stupa for Arupadhatu (the world of formlessness). Craig and I, mere mortals wondering around desire and form 😁

Conspiracy Theory-
There has never been a body found in the Pyramids of Giza. Although they are commonly referred to as burial places for the Ancient Egyptian Kings there has never been the body of one found there, the bodies and sarcophagi are found in the Valley of The Kings. Ancient astronaut theorists are suggesting that the Pyramids of Giza are actually Power Plants built by the Ancient Egyptians to power their technology, as well as their G-ds and Gddresses technologies.

Having travelled to Vietnam recently meant that I got to visit the ancient kingdom of the Champa people at My Son, a kingdom that was built during the 4th century AD. I have always been fascinated about the transition of polytheism to monotheism. So many ancient civilisations practised polytheism, and the Champa people were one of them. And in my findings, it seems Persia has had much influence in this transition. Persia was also known for trading with the Champa people. The Champa people are well known for their silk making trade and their method is still being used today.

My quest to understand the influence of patriarchy continues.

Glass art. Ive been thinking alot about the origin of humans latley, now that the end seems to close in on our race. To me its obvious that advanced human civilisations have lived before those we have uncovered. I watched a documentary which argued that Antarctica was without snow 13000 years ago and that a huge and developed civilization flourished there. To think the British or the Spanish were the "first" to discover anything is small minded and self centered. The Egyptians used cocaine and nicotine, substances which were native to south america. This means they travelled!! Across the seas!!! I'm so curious about this. So many things remains unexplained and its clearly a disadvantage for us humans to not know our history. .

Me and rocks.......there is just so much magic in them...the shapes, the feel, the texture, the marks and those thousands of years trapped inside them.  A simple formation full of mystery.

(Quick note, I noticed a grammatical error in the first sentence and it should go as follows; "Rapamycin is a mysterious bacteria discovered on Easter Island." Sorry about that.) Rapamycin is a mysterious bacteria discovered on  Easter Island. Some scientists say it could stop the aging  process and be the key to immortality.

Liquid Resonance (oil on wood) - I now have this image as a 150x100cm tapestry *swipe left. Thus image was inspired by the goddess Yemeya but also has a strong Lemurian connection.

There is an ancient remembering emerging, this is expressing in minds and hearts of all those who can see a better future and are not just dreaming it but returning back to the core of earth based traditions to bring through knowledge that will help shift this paradigm back in to balance.

I’ve just bought these beautiful rough pieces of aquamarine from Brazil. I’ve not figured out what to do with them yet but just had to get them! ◭ ◭ ◭ 
Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. The ancient Egyptians also considered it a stone of eternal youth and happiness... who could ask for more!!

Did Ancient Aliens help build the Pyramids.
The speed of light is 299,792,458 metres per second and the geographic co-ordinates for the Great Pyramid are 29.9792458°N.
Human beings could not measure the speed of light with this precision until 1950. 👽👽👽

Tutankhamun’s wooden chest.  The chest found in the tomb displayed aspects of the social, political and military aspects of ancient Egyptians.

The chest was used as when discovered it contained the precious and personal items of Tutankhamun. It contained: 
1-  A pair of papyrus sandals
2-  3 pairs of gilded sandals.
3- One gilded headrest.
4- Necklaces.
5- Labels.
6- Embroidered ceremonial robes belonging to the king, one of them was studded with over 3000 golden rosettes.

All my recent research and discoveries have been centred around Ancient Egypt so it’s not surprising that yesterday I jumped at the chance to book a trip to join one of my favourite Egyptologists, Mohammad Abrahim, on an exploration of the alternative truths of this advanced civilisation 🙌🏻 roll on november!!!! ◭ ◭ ◭

And to top it off... today I’m off to meet a friend who works closely with a family run mine who carefully excavate lapis lazuli crystal from the same source as that which was used in Tutankhamen’s tomb... how incredible is that!?! Can you believe it? Giving the game away that lapis will feature in my next collection for sure! 💙💙💙

Good to have people of various nationalities involved in the #restoration of #myson, a UNESCO world heritage site in Vietnam
.
Very few structures remain standing, but artifacts identified are sectioned off, some are kept in a little "museum" on-site awaiting restoration
.
Pic 6 shows a overgrown bomb crater marked with a placard. On the other side of the river where the temples are, the site is significantly cooler and more fertile and green. Apparently the layout is such that the important functions of prayers and studies are less likely to be intruded on where the conditions are hotter and less favourable

For something a wee bit different today: "A Truth Hunter Super Hero Portrait" - An illustrated stylized #portrait in #acrylic, a medium sadly, I know almost know next to nothing about (sigh...) However, I had to try it anyway (again) because... #LindaMoutonHowe is simply my favorite #science investigative reporter in all the whole wide world!

This piece combines symbolism and references from some of Howe's past reports and interest in the ancient archeological site of Gobleki Tepe in #Turkey.

Now that I have my natural paint #pigments, I feel more virtuous about using acrylic, a medium that's essentially plastic 😱😭😞... Even though I'm mixing my own paint with store-bougth binder😭😭😭 ...I still feel my little contribution to detoxifying the world has some impact. 
I hope that makes total sense. 
After all, didn't some great ancient philosopher say: " A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step." Now, that's wisdom I can believe in!

Came across these #houses  during the trek which was pretty cool, maybe they were just built yesterday but the story in my head involved #ancientcivilisations  which was so much more exciting :) (click link in bio for full laguna69 blog) . . . #huaraz  #peru  #nikon  #traveljunkie  #zanzibar  #travellingthroughtheworld  #diaryofajetsetter  #jetsetter  #travelblog  #topdreamdestinations  #earthpix  #topeuropephoto  #destinationearth  #passionpassport  #iamatraveller  #travelawesome  #lonelyplanet  #mytinyatlas  #neverstopexploring  #hello_worldpics  #worlderlust  #welivetoexplore  #guardiantravelsnaps  #communityfirst  #huffpostgram  #theglobewanderer  #diaryofajetsetter  #zohratheexplorer 
Is this ancient Mayan depiction of Pacal the Great showing him inside of some sort of spacecraft or is it depicting him in some sort of shrine? Tell us what you think in the comments!

The amazing Sigiriya, ancient rock fortress and UNESCO world heritage site. The King built his palace on top of the rock around 477CE - wow!!

Day 3 in Jordan 🇯🇴Visiting places like Petra make me want to become an archaeologist. #justcallmeindianajones #ancientcivilisations
.Go Mexico! Well played! On my last trip to Mexico my guide told me that some of the ancient Mesoamerican ball games included human sacrifice, which meant the best players were sacrificed to the Gods. (Well, not sure if there is enough archeological evidence for that particular statement and I hope that is not the case) #fascinating #culture #nevertheless

You just ought to ask yourself how can a human mind come up with such an extraordinary mythology, complex calendar system based on cosmology and an entire pantheon of peculiar looking gods! #thingsthatiamcuriousabout #ancientcivilisations #mesoamerica #quetzalcoatl

Got nothing to do on a Saturday? Or do you have something to do and have 1-2 hours to kill while you’re doing a few other things? Why not listen to both parts of the most recent episode of the Genuine Chit-Chat podcast – available on YouTube, iTunes, Podbean and the usual podcast apps!
————————————————————————
In this chat, Mike & his guest Jack discuss Scottish culture, the influence on music black culture has had, the numerous motorcycle accidents Jack has been involved in, the second amendment regarding gun ownership (in America), they talk about their dads (both of whom have passed away), the English language, Jack’s heart condition “Heart Block” and much more!
————————————————————————
In part 2 (released next week) they continue the discussion on Jack’s heart condition, the technological revolution, climate change, animals & the differences between us and countries who eat animals we’d consider to be pets, veganism, fungi, consciousness, the universe, ancient civilisation, aliens and too many other topics to count, so be sure to check that out too!

For some reason Game of Thrones music was playing in my head while we were exploring ancient sites of early civilisation in Sardinia - the ancient Phoenician and Carthiginian city of Tharros on the beautiful western coastline .. 4 Roman baths with their series of hot, warm, cold baths - our guide Renzo called it an ancient wellness centre .. with evidence people made a day of it and ordered in..bones from feasts in the baths found on the site.  These people lived well! @tharros_sardegna Thank you Renzo! #sardiniansafari #gourmetsafaris #history #ancientcivilisations
