  • The Hand of Hercules is the name given to a massive fragment of an ancient statue that was unearthed by archaeologists in Amman, the capital of Jordan. The giant hand is part of the Temple of Hercules complex (162-166 CE).
.
Few clues were left to help scholars unlock the mysteries of this massive half-finished, abandoned temple. But the ones that did exist were huge—albeit ambiguous. From just three gigantic fingers, one elbow, and a scattering of coins, archaeologists have agreed these marble body parts likely belonged to a massive statue of Hercules himself. The statue’s hand and its elbow can be seen by those visiting the remains of Amman’s Temple of Hercules today.

  • I'm  so emotional, I'm stressed as a woman on the behalf of woman.. The weight we carry each and every day, if we are not harrassed we are cheated on. I'm stressed to see how men can change us for the worst... We are no longer sisters. We live in hatred with one another. We disrespect ourselves. We disrespect other woman because of men. We are hypocrites. We are filled with hatred. We fight for certain woman, with certain standards. We body shame when we want talks about "I'll never date a fat guy." We are for Woman when it suites us. Who Are We......???? Thanks for this image❤️@migalvanas @blkgirls  #blackwoman #brownskin #womanday #power #azanian #history #expressions #brownskin #international #capetown #southafrica #xhosa

  • Der #hermannleuchtet noch bis zum 24. März. Hermann? Arminius? Wer war er denn nun wirklich? Er war ein Fürst der Cherusker, der den Römern im Jahre 9 n. Chr. in der Varusschlacht mit der Vernichtung von drei Legionen eine verheerende Niederlage beibrachte. Die ganze Geschichte dahinter: bei uns in der Ausstellung Mythos!
The Hermann monument shines until March 24th. Hermann? Arminius? Who was it really? He was a chieftain of the Germanic Cherusci tribe who commanded an alliance of Germanic tribes at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in in 9 AD, in which three Roman legions were destroyed. The story beyond: in our exhibition Myth!

  • @Regrann from @the_amateur_historian - Legendary American actress Marilyn Monroe is shown in this colorized image made from what is perhaps the most well-known and most famous photo of her ever made: the moment a gust of air from a subway grate blew her dress up as she was filming a scene for her film: "The Seven Year Itch." Lexington Avenue, between 52nd and 53rd Street, New York City. September 15th 1954. The photograph was taken by set photographer Sam Shaw and the scene was a moment where she and costar Tom Ewell were walking out from a movie theater when a sudden gust of air from the grate blew her dress up. Instead of rushing to cover her legs as most women of that era would have, Marilyn (known in the film simply as: "The Girl") simply quipped: "Do you feel the breeze from the subway? Isn't it delicious?" Even if you never saw the movie then you would certainly know of the photograph, and for the last 60 years it has been a very iconic image of Marilyn Monroe herself and perhaps one of the most iconic images of the entire 20th century itself. This image was actually from one of two different shootings of this scene, as the first time they tried to film it dozens of fans arrived to watch, and the noises they made unfortunately were too much of a distraction. Monroe's husband at the time of filming, Joe DiMaggio, was reported to have been absolutely infuriated at the revealing scene, and it caused a: "yelling battle" between them immediately after the scene was filmed. They divorced about one month later. However, the scene and the dress both remain very iconic, and the dress itself was actually recently sold by its owner at the time, actress Debbie Reynolds, in an auction in 2011. It was estimated that it would be sold for a price between one and two million dollars, but it actually managed to sell for a total of $5.6 million dollars.

  • “Inspiration and what Bog sends”. Questa sera, terminato il Digiuno di Ester, inizia Purìm. Lo chiamano erroneamente carnevale ebraico ma è Purìm. Oggi è la storia di Ester che si racconta ancora con tutto il sapore e il ritmo di una fiaba orientale. Il cuore di questa festa è il coraggio di Hadassa/Ester: doppio nome, doppia nazionalità doppia appartenenza… orfana, ebrea e di umili origini. Una volta divenuta regina di Persia riuscì da sola a ribaltare le sorti (purim, appunto) del popolo ebraico destinato al sicuro sterminio architettato dal perfido Hamàn consigliere del Re. Ester proclama le proprie origini e la propria identità, salvando così il suo popolo e rivelando la sua forza. È un giorno di divertimento, di condivisione, di gioia, di ubriacatura (fino a non distinguere più il buon Mordekhai, cugino della regina, dal perfido Hamàn). Indubbiamente la festa più allegra dell’ebraismo e in cui, fra le altre cose, ci si maschera. E nel nascondimento sembra essere il messaggio più importante. Nella Meghillàt (rotolo) di Ester non è mai nominato Dio, la sua azione se c’è è nascosta. C’è Ester una donna compiacente e bella ma anche strategica e riflessiva e, soprattutto, capace di scoprire la propria forza nella consapevolezza della propria vulnerabilità. Mi piace molto questa idea di anima femminile, fonte di vita e vicina all’azione del divino. Ester agisce e scopre il proprio eroismo facendosi protagonista. Del resto il nome Ester, persiano, vuol dire sì stella ma, in ebraico, rimanda alla radice propria dell’atto di nascondersi. Ester nasconde e si nasconde ma poi si riscopre forte e audace nel proprio essere. Così come il nostro popolo che, ormai da tempo disperso nel regno persiano, scopre e prende consapevolezza della propria diversità, percepisce di essere oggetto di un odio antisemita e, proprio nel nascondimento (o assenza?) di Dio sente tutta la sua debolezza e trova la possibilità e la capacità di salvare se stesso. Questo  è lo svelamento del nascosto e la nostra grande libertà. Quella di lottare ed essere noi stessi, oltre l’apparenza e rivelarci autentici nel significato del nostro volto. 
Hag Purim Sameach!
