a doodle of my culture’s traditional wedding outfit which is still worn by brides in several areas of the country (although nowadays it’s slowly turning into more of a traditional dance costume because it’s just so shiny and pretty) and gold does play an important part in our culture (even our jong sarat is lined with gold thread sdfkhjg)
and you know flowers lots of flowers
Track I listened to : (Surprise it’s my traditional music ahah)

The battle of the Ancre Heights of 1 October-11 November 1916 was part of the wider first battle of the Somme. It was fought on the left of the British line of the Somme, with the aim of pinching out a German salient on the Ancre River created by the limited British advances further along the line. The attack was to be launched by the Reserve Army, which held the front on either side of the Ancre.

Marble Anthropoid Sarcophagus
Late 5th Century BC
The lid of the sarcophagus shows an unarticulated, downward tapering body and the head of a woman framed by flowing hair; traces of red paint are still preserved in the hair. At the foot end of the box and on the lid appears the Phoenician letter “shin.” According to recent investigations, the anthropoid sarcophagi of marble were quarried on the Greek island of Paros. They were prepared up to a certain point and finished at their destinations. The inscribed letters here strongly suggest that the sculptor was Phoenician, which would be entirely plausible at Amathus and Kition, two centers of Phoenician occupation on Cyprus. Such fine, expensive coffins inspired local copies in limestone and terracotta.
