Indian mythology is so fascinating. Where else would you find gods sleeping on snakes, goddesses who ride lions, flying monkeys, men with ten heads, heads that watch wars from atop mountains, and mountains that get churned by warring factions out of which numerous 'gifts' emerge.
.
And lore says one such gift that emerged during the churning of the mountain Mandara was this happy, prancing cow - Kamadhenu.
.
Kamadhenu was a magical cow who granted wishes. She was named the 'cow of plenty' and was known to bestow everything the heart desired upon her owner.
.
So let me be politically correct and reverentially say I have a likeness of the holy cow on a decorative wall plate (because simply saying I have the holy cow on a plate is going to raise eyebrows so high, they'll disappear into people's hairlines).
.
And also, when people start telling me how this generation has it easy, I can make my way to the wall, point at Kamadhenu, and provide dramatic emphasis to the expression that we are not a generation of wish granting cows.
.
All in all, this dainty white cow who looks very pleased with her lot in life makes for a happier wall.
.
Thanks @morataara for the beautifully designed wall plate.

El Fauno Barberini o sátiro embriagado es una estatua griega de la época helenística. Se encuentra actualmente en la Gliptoteca de Múnich. Fue realizada con mármol de Pérgamo y su altura es de 2,15 metros.

La estatua fue descubierta durante el pontificado de Urbano VIII (1623-1643) en las excavaciones del foso del castillo Sant'Angelo, en Roma. Según el cronista antiguo Procopio de Cesárea, durante la guerra entre romanos y godos, los romanos para defenderse arrojaron estatuas desde lo alto del castillo a los asaltantes, y una de esas estatuas arrojadas podría ser el Fauno Barberini.

Se cree que representa un fauno, figura de la mitología equivalente a un sátiro, en un profundo sueño producto de su embriaguez. Cuando la obra se recuperó se hallaba mutilada, sin el brazo izquierdo y sin piernas, por lo cual fue ampliamente restaurada por Bernini en el siglo XVII. Este escultor traicionó en cierta manera el significado de la obra: injertó la pierna derecha en una posición flexionada y mucho más levantada que la original, de modo que la figura no parece estar desfallecida por la embriaguez, sino que su actitud parece más procaz, de provocación sexual.

Esta estatua suele ser datada a fines del siglo III a. C. o principios del siglo siguiente, aunque algunos autores prefieren retrasar su fecha hasta el siglo I a. C. Se cree que pudo ser una ofrenda en algún templo dedicado a Dioniso. 🎭⏳✨ #BarberiniFaun #GreekSculpture #GreekArt #Helenistic #AncientGreece #AncientWorld #ClassicWorld #AncientArt #ClassicArt #AncientSculpture #ClassicSculpture #HistoryOfSculpture #ArtHistory #Sculpture #Art #Mythology #GreekMythology #ClassicalMythology #AncientMythology

Det var efter sigende her, i den myteopspundende flod Acheron, at den Græske sagnhelt Achilleus blev døbt og pga flodens magiske vand opnåede uovervindelige kræfter. Mark; engelsk guide, inkarneret Arsenal fan og forhenværende pubejer i London, forsøgte at gøre det samme med mig.Trods ihærdige forsøg lader det dog ikke til at have virket og jeg er stadig blot Joons' nede fra Dunkærsmeden.

Psyche hears the message of Mercury and comes to the Venus Palace by herself

When Venus saw her, she began to laugh, and as angry persons accustomed to do, she shaked her head, and said: "Oh goddesse, goddesse, you are now come at length to visit your husband that is in danger of death, by your means: be you assured, I will handle you like a daughter: where be my maidens, Sorrow and Sadness?" To whom (when they came) she delivered Psyches to be cruelly tormented; then they fulfilled the commandment of their Mistresse, and after they had piteously scourged her with rods and whips, they presented her again before Venus; then she began to laugh again.

Psyche Before the Throne of Venus
Henrietta Rae, oil on canvas
1894

In Greek mythology, Prometheus created man from clay and later stole fire from the gods to give to humanity. As a punishment, Zeus tied him to a rock, where an eagle picked out his liver each day, with it growing back each night. 'Prometheus' by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571–1610) (attributed to), Perth & Kinross Council⠀

Ancient Philadelphia collection part 3. 🕵️️‍♂️The First picture is The Statu of The mythological Greek hero of Perseus The one who killed Medusa. In ancient Philadelphia sculptureing wasn't a new thing in the city when the Hellenistic, roman age was there. Sculptureing started in Edom itself, The kings of Edom used to present themselves through sculptureing themselves to the public but their style was heavily influenced By The Assyrian civilization so it wasn't as detailed but more symbolic but at The roman age the art of sculptureing wasn't only for kings,generals and The autocratic but also for The ordinary people of The city.🏺 #ancienthistory #ancientcity #sculptureing #ancientsculpture #ancientartifacts #greekmythology #mythology #ancientgreece #ancientrome #Edom #Amman #britishmuseum #ancientart #petra #visitjordan #shareyourjordan #ancienttraditions

LEO♌️
July23 - August 22 Mid-summer and its officially Leo season.
One of the earliest constellations dating back 4000 BC the #Persians called it #Shir. To #Syrians it was #Aryo and the #Indians it was #Simha. From the #Greek #mythology it was known as #NemeanLion which was known to lure #warriors, take hostages into its #lair, and save damsels in distress. The Greeks realized that the lion was impervious to any weapons and could only be killed if one was up close to it. Western astrology continues to use the symbol of the lion for the star configurations from July 23 to August 22. The sun is this #5th sign's ruling planet. Happy bday to all those radiant, commanding, regal-like, fiery Leos.
