#TheseMughalWomen : In case you’re wondering, that’s Zebunnissa celebrating the Shab-i-Barat festival with fireworks🌟. A Mughal miniature from mid-18th century from the Pergamon Museum, Berlin 🏛
Shab-e-Barat is the night of salvation. This night commemorates the time when God saved Noah and his Ark from the flood. The night also commemorates the entry of the Prophet Muhammad into Mecca. .
But most of all the keyword for this celebration is “forgiveness” .
In the end, all cultures and religions teach us the same thing, no? .

Glass spear head found at the beach.
It has been stepped over perhaps a million times, wedged down between the rocks for over one hundred years. An unseen reminder of a culture and people that were forced to adapt to a greedy and corrupt 'new' way, and a greedy and corrupt way that is still struggling to adapt to a new land in an ever changing world and climate.

Part of the atmosphere from Maundy Thursday, and procession “Following the cross”.
After mass on Maundy Thursday before the Christian holiday of Easter, each of six villages on the Dalmatian island of Hvar sends out a group that will proceed through the other villages in a circle, covering twenty-five kilometres in eight hours before returning home. Each party in this community-organized Za Krizen (‘following the cross’) procession is led by a cross-bearer who walks barefoot or in socks, never resting. The cross-bearer, formerly selected from among religious brotherhoods and today chosen by registration up to twenty years in advance, has a much-desired and respected position, reflecting the devotion of the individual bearer and his family. He is followed by two friends with candelabra and others carrying candles and lanterns, five choral singers who sing the Lamentation of the Virgin Mary at several points along the way, and many worshippers of all ages. The procession is greeted by the priests of each of the other five villages and returns home. A long-established part of Hvar religious and cultural identity, the procession connects the communities of the island to each other and to the world Catholic community.
The events that occurred on Good Friday, the day of Jesus' death and burial, are some of the most frequently depicted scenes in Western art, but as far as tearjerkers go, this deposition scene by Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden at @museoprado really takes the cake.
It's more than likely one of the paintings that Michelangelo had in mind when he famously said: “Flemish painting [will] please the devout better than any painting of Italy, which will never cause him to shed a tear, whereas that of Flanders will cause him to shed many.” Someone pass this guy a Kleenex.
Indeed, the sorrowful tones in Weyden’s painting are fully wailing out to the audience. The tragic death of Jesus Christ, for one, is a major bummer. So much so that the ashen-faced Virgin Mary has collapsed to the ground with grief, in a pose that is famously known as “the Swoon of the Virgin.” The nun-like lady in the back (far left) and the guy in the gold and black brocade lifting Christ’s legs are also look pretty messed up. Almost like super sad sculptures.
Also, the unusual shape of the canvas gives it the appearance of a tunneled out space being viewed in cross section—kind of like a crypt! Especially when you take into account the skull and random bones strewn across the ground, though those can also be explained by the fact that Calvary, or Golgotha, the site of the crucifixion, was understood to mean "the Place of the Skull."
Bhartnatyam on the Streets of India

Traditionally, Bharatanatyam has been a solo dance that was performed exclusively by women, and it expressed South Indian religious themes and spiritual ideas, particularly of Shaivism,Vaishnavism and Shaktism.
everyone competes to be number one, everyone competes to be the best in front of the person who is glorified, but not a few of them are too ambitious to finally justify all means. hope we dont belong to those people 😊
remember your god is in every thing, even the universe evaluates from every move of yours including what u think in your mind n mind, and all that will come back to u.
🇪🇸 ESP: Un grupo de arqueólogos encuentran en Pompeya el fresco de Narciso en condiciones extraordinarias. Fue desenterrado en una casa en que el pasado noviembre, los mismos arqueólogos excavaron el fresco de un dormitorio de la mitología griega, "la violación de Leda por el dios Zeus en forma de cisne". Ambas obras sobrevivieron a la erupción del monte. Vesubio en el 79 dC, que sepultó la ciudad romana de Pompeya en fuego, piedra pómez y ceniza.
