(Text from the Acropolis Museum)"The area around the Erechtheion was considered the most sacred of the Acropolis. The Erechtheion was a complex marble building in the Ionic order, an exceptional artwork. The eastern part of the Temple was dedicated to Athena, whilst the western part was dedicated to local hero Boutes, Hephaistos and other gods and heroes. Thus, the Erechtheion was a temple with multiple functions, housing older and newer cults, and the site of the ‘Sacred Tokens’, the marks made by Poseidon’s trident and the olive tree, the gift of Athena to the city of Athens.

The building had two porches. The roof of the north porch was supported on six Ionic columns, while below its floor the Athenians pointed at the mark of the thunderbolt sent by Zeus to kill the legendary King Erechteus. At the south porch, which was the most well-known, the roof was supported by six statues of maidens known as the Caryatids, instead of the typical columns. Below it stood the grave of Kekrops, another legendary King of Athens. A building inscription of the Erechtheion refers to the Caryatids simply as Korai (maidens), while the name Caryatids was assigned at a later time. The second Korai from the western section was removed by Lord Elgin in 1801 and is today located in the British Museum.

Several interpretations about the Caryatids have been put forth. The most convincing one supports the view that they constituted the visible portion of the grave of Kekrops and were the choephoroi who paid tribute to the glorious dead. The main building and the north porch were surrounded by a continuous Ionic frieze decorated with images of gods, heroes and mortals, in scenes related to the ancient cults of the Erechtheion. The figures were separately carved in Parian marble and affixed on slabs of grey Eleusinian limestone." #acropolis #erechtheion #caryatids #ancientgreece #worldheritage

Found this waterfall on the popular Golden Circle tour (had missed it on my prior visit). A must do if you get the chance to visit Iceland. Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of historical, cultural, and geological significance. Its many attractions include Öxaráfoss waterfall, Almannagja canyon where North America and Europe meet, and the Law Rock marking the foundation of the first Icelandic parliamentary proceedings in the summer of 930 A.D. 🇮🇸

Lumiere Durham 2017 from Riverside Walk🏰
ルミエーレ・ダラム、リバーサイドから大聖堂を臨む。道が狭いので、ビューポイントまで牛歩😓 ハイライトなので、大聖堂ほどじゃないにしろ混雑。

The Sun to the sky,
Is my relation with thy.
You infinite,
All around me.
Intimidated I feel,
Sometimes insecure too.
What if all this for,
No Much Ado!

Remembering our trip to Botswana 😍 🐘🐘BOND🐘🐘 Elephants are known to develop strong, intimate bonds between friends and family members. There have been reports of elephants forming lifelong friendships with each other, and they even mourn the death of their loved ones. Mother elephants have been seen grieving over stillborn calves, and some elephants have even been spotted returning to, and lingering near, spots where their friends and family members died.

📍🇦🇹 ...hace ya algún tiempo descubrí que las personas se miden en instantes y en momentos compartidos y he aprendido que es el día a día el que de verdad importa. Ahora estoy convencida de que lo único que quiero es disfrutar cada segundo de mi vida.
