A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.
Here, I @maliha.waq standing at Istanbul’s most ancient and historic ‘Hagia Sophia’. Someone said it very true that, we are not makers of history, we are made by history.
At first, when I entered this place, I was just stunned to see and know the history of it.
The Hagia Sophia is an enormous architectural marvel in Istanbul, Turkey, that was originally built as a Christian basilica nearly 1,500 years ago. Much like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Parthenon in Athens, the Hagia Sophia is a long-enduring symbol of the cosmopolitan city.
However, as notable as the structure is itself, its role in the history of Istanbul—and, for that matter, the world—is also significant and touches upon matters related to international politics, religion, art and architecture.
The dome’s supporting arches were covered with mosaics of six winged angels called hexapterygon.
In an effort to create a grand basilica that represented all of the Byzantine Empire, Emperor Justinian decreed that all provinces under his rule send architectural pieces for use in its construction.
The marble used for the floor and ceiling was produced in Anatolia (present-day eastern Turkey) and Syria, while other bricks (used in the walls and parts of the floor) came from as far away as North Africa. The interior of Hagia Sophia is lined with enormous marble slabs that are said to have been designed to imitate moving water.
Since 1935, nine years after the Republic of Turkey was established by Ataturk, the legendary structure has been operated as a museum by the national government, and it reportedly attracts more than three million visitors annually.

The Neanderthal Skull:
This is a reconstruction of the skull of the child found at Pontnewydd Cave, North Wales. I had never seen a Neanderthal child before - reconstruction/cast or genuine fossil, having been accustomed to seeing copies of La Ferrasie I or the La Chapelle aux Saints skull.
Neanderthal skulls demonstrate a number of differences to the skulls of Homo sapiens. These include large, high and rounded eye orbits, a broad nose, large incisors, and a more voluminous and longer braincase (to house their bigger brains 😛). Above their orbits, you can see a more prominent brow ridge. In this reconstruction it’s not as defined, which I’m accounting perhaps as a result of the maturity of the child - he was only 8! #neanderthal#neanderthals#archaeology#anthropology#skull#skullanatomy#reconstruction#museum#museumvisit#stfagans#naturalhistory
Величественное здание на холме, возвышающееся над каскадом фонтанов и проспектом, который начинается между двумя 47-метровыми башнями в венецианском стиле - это Palau Nacional, где расположился Национальный музей искусства Каталонии 🏛
Музей Естествознания ,пожалуй это место произвело на меня самое большое впечатление на период нахождения в Лондоне ,музей огромный и бесплатный ,Нелли сказала внутри здания создаётся ощущение что гуляешь по Хогвардсу , но лично я ощущал себя героем фильма <Ночь в Музее>😂
Главной экспозицией является коллекция скелетов динозавров ,а так же 30-метровый скелет синего кита ,украшающий центральный холл ,есть экспозиции об истории вселенной ,земли и человека !Кстати в Лондоне подавляющее большинство музеев ,галерей и соборов совершенно бесплатны ,а это огромный плюс учитывая цены на все остальное ! #london#england#uk#museum#history
‘Evening, Brockham’, 1890 by Edward Wilkins Waite.
Waite is known as a landscape painter and in this particular work, he describes a relatively modest house in the woods, or more precisely a cabin with an old man standing outside doing some gardening work. The bare tree announces a late autumn evening and the smoke from the recently put out fire hints that the man has finished his work and he is resting a bit before going inside.
This oil on canvas painting is part of a private collection.
