🇮🇹 Spada jineta di Boadbil, Museo dell'Esercito di Toledo, Spagna. Abu 'Abd Allāh Muhammad (Muhammad XII), conosciuto come Boabdil, fu il ventiduesimo sultano della dinastia dei Nasridi e, di fatto, l'ultimo sultano del Sultanato di Granada. Il 2 gennaio del 1492, dopo settimane estenuanti da assediato fu costretto a capitolare e cedette il suo regno ai "Re Cattolici" di Spagna, Isabella di Castiglia e Ferdinando d'Aragona. Era la fine della riconquista cristiana della penisola iberica. 🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️ 🇬🇧 Jinete sword of Boadbil, Army Museum of Toledo, Spain.

Photo by Cory Richards @coryrichards | Mustang, a former kingdom in north-central Nepal, is home to one of the world’s great archaeological mysteries. Hidden within the Himalaya on walls deeply cleaved by the Kali Gandaki River are an extraordinary number of human-built caves, also known as the "sky caves." No one knows who dug them. Or why. Or even how people climbed into them. Pictured here is daily life against the backdrop of the caves. #followme @coryrichards for more #travel #culture and #mystery from around the world.

Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | At 12,500 feet above sea level, Lake Titicaca is the highest lake in the world that large vessels can navigate. The lake is home to the Uros islands—70 man-made floating communities built with totora reeds. According to Inca mythology, Titicaca is where the sun sent the empire’s founders down to Earth. The Uros people that live on these floating islands continue to host reenactments of this legend. To make a living, they fish from totoro boats, like the one pictured, navigating depths that average 350 feet (and 900 feet, at its deepest point).

Navajo Spirit. It’s always very special to me when people get emotional when we meet. Their tears are a reflection of so many emotions and I try to be as present as I can possibly can. I’ve been particularly moved by our Native Americans on this Navajo Nation land. Every hand shake, every hug, every presentation bubbles with emotion. They’re often brought to tears ~ as am I. This powerful land in this picture, is owned by this humble matriarch and her family. As she presented this gift to me on behalf of her family and ancestors, she began to cry. Real as it gets. With every handshake, I feel from them such a deep rooted sense of pride, pain, struggle, joy, humility and strong perseverance. I’m grateful to have been so embraced by our Najavo Nation. #culture #respect

🇮🇹 Villa romana De Salar, Granada, Spagna. Durante la III campagna di scavo nella villa romana De Salar gli archeologi dell' università di Granada hanno rinvenuto una statua, di circa 60 cm, raffigurante Venere. Il tipo statuario è quello della Venere Pudica; un modo di rappresentare la dea, nuda, mentre con le braccia si copre il pube e/o il seno. Il tipo deriva dalla Venere Cnida di Prassitele. 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🇬🇧 Roman Villa of Salar, Granada, Spain.

🇮🇹 Gli archeologi messicani hanno rinvenuto all'interno della Piramide del Sole di Teotihuacan alcuni depositi votivi. Uno di questi potrebbe essere stato destinato a consacrare la costruzione della struttura avvenuta nel I sec. d.C. Il deposito in questione conteneva una splendida maschera antropomorfa in pietra verde e diversi strati di manufatti. La maschera ritrovata, ricavata da un'unica pietra e alta 11 cm, è diversa dalle altre maschere di Teotihuacan perché presenta dimensioni più ridotte e volume; è possibile che possa trattarsi di un ritratto di un determinato individuo. 🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️ 🇬🇧 Mexican archaeologists have found some votive deposits inside the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan.

Photo by @coryrichards | Alpinist Adrian Ballinger is pictured at our acclimatization camp, high over the Khumbu Valley's Island Peak, as we prepare our bodies to climb Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. Island Peak is also known as Imja Tse, a mountain in Sagarmatha National Park of the Himalayas of eastern Nepal. The peak was named “Island Peak” in 1953 by members of the British Mount Everest expedition, due to its appearance as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche, a Sherpa village in the Chukhung Valley. #followme @coryrichards for visual storytelling #onassignment for #natgeo and previously unseen footage of the #culture #travel #adventure of the #himalayas including my upcoming climb on the northeast face of #everest.

🇮🇹 Porta di tutte le Nazioni, Persepoli, Iran. La Porta di tutte le Nazioni, conosciuta anche come la Porta di Serse, si trova tra le rovine dell'antica città di Persepoli, in Iran. La costruzione fu ordinata dal re Achemenide Serse I (486-465 aC). La struttura consisteva in una grande stanza il cui tetto era sostenuto da quattro colonne in pietra con basi a forma di campana. Parallelamente alle pareti interne di questa stanza correva una panchina di pietra, interrotta dalle porte. Le pareti esterne erano coperte da nicchie frequenti. Ognuna delle tre pareti, a est, a ovest ea sud, aveva un grande portale in pietra. Un paio di enormi tori assicurarono l'entrata occidentale; due Lamassu in stile Assiro, seppur di proporzioni colossali, stavano sulla soglia orientale. Incisa sopra ciascuno dei quattro colossi è un'iscrizione trilingue che attesta che la costruzione fu fatta da Serse I. 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹🔸️🔹️ 🇬🇧 The Gate of All Nations, Persepolis, Iran. The Gate of All Nations also known as the Gate of Xerxes, is located in the ruins of the ancient city of Persepolis, Iran. The construction was ordered by the Achaemenid King Xerxes I (486-465 BC). The structure consisted of one large room whose roof was supported by four stone columns with bell-shaped bases. Parallel to the inner walls of this room ran a stone bench, interrupted at the doorways. The outside walls, were bedecked with frequent niches. Each of the three walls, on the east, west, and south, had a very large stone doorway. A pair of massive bulls secured the western entrance; two Lamassu in the Assyrian style, albeit, of colossal proportions, stood at the eastern doorway. Engraved above each of the four colossi is a trilingual inscription attesting to Xerxes having built and fulfilled the Gate. 🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️ 📸 Photo by @harimaolee 🔸 🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️🔸️🔹️ #iran #persepoli #persepolis #architecturelovers #gateofallthenations #heritage #culture #portadituttelenazioni #lamassu #Gate #ancientgate #archeologicalsite #iranian #archeologia #archaeology #travelling #bestplaces #ancientmonuments #beautifulplaces #monuments

Photo by @coryrichards | Norbu, a Tibetan kitchen worker, stands for a portrait at 21,000 feet, below a fierce wind plume blowing off the summit of Everest. Every year, over a thousand people come to climb Everest. And every year, the climb is made possible by countless seemingly nameless individuals like Norbu. The infrastructure of Himalayan climbing is built, quite literally, on the backs of people like him. Norbu shoulders a bag of freshly chopped glacial ice, which will be melted for water. This is a trip he makes roughly 10 times a day for around six weeks. I will be attempting a new route on Everest this spring, and it’s people like Norbu make climbs like mine possible. #followme @coryrichards for more visual storytelling #onassignment for #natgeo and previously unseen footage of the #culture #travel #adventure of the #himalayas including my upcoming climb on the North East face of #everest.

Photo by Rena Effendi @renaeffendiphoto | Young “iyawo” in her Santeria initiation dress. Cuba’s syncretic religion, Santeria, has been gaining widespread popularity in the last decade after a long era of oppression. Formally known as the Regla de Ocha, this Afro-Caribbean religion has roots in Yoruba traditions, while incorporating some Roman-Catholic rituals. During their year-long initiation, women and men are called iyawo, which translates as “bride of Orisha,” a Santeria deity and a powerful but mortal spirit. The iyawos are obliged to dress head to toe in white. A symbol of purity and peace, the white dress will also symbolize rebirth.

Copts continue the tradition of tattooing, which dates back to the era of pharaohs in ancient Egypt. A very common tattoo design is a small cross on the back of a wrist; tattooed crosses are the most common marks for the members of the Coptic community. Some other popular representations are the images of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, or Saint George.
