On this day … The destruction of the two giant 4th and 5th-century buddhas in Bamiyan is, by far, the most spectacular attack against the cultural and historical heritage of Afghanistan. On February 26, 2001 the Taliban, issued a decree ordering the elimination of all non-Islamic statues and sanctuaries in the country. A kind of jihad was launched against the two Buddhas. “Our soldiers are working hard; they are using all available arms against them,” said the Taliban’s spokesman. Rockets and tank shells were brought in, and the destruction was completed with dynamite. The giant statues, once standing 35 and 53m tall, were reduced to rubble within days. Today, archaeological sites in Afghanistan are still under threat, though not solely from the Taliban… Over coming posts I’ll share details of Mes Aynak, an ancient and significant site facing imminent destruction, so a foreign-state-owned mining company can harvest the copper reserves buried directly beneath.

Here photographed a ‘Victory Arch’ built by the Northern Alliance at the entrance to a local commanders’s HQ in Bamiyan after the expulsion of the Taliban.
In the centre can be seen one of the niches that previously contained the smaller of the buddhas.

Il busto, poco conosciuto, è stato attribuito allo scultore veneziano del Settecento Antonio Corradini (1682-1752), per il motivo del finto velo che copre il volto della figura. In realtà dovrebbe trattarsi dell’opera di uno scultore neoclassico per ora non identificato, probabilmente veneto.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ 🏛Aiutaci a far conoscere il nostro Patrimonio🏛

Anat, Matan and Ido from Layada School found these two drinking bowls as they were digging in our cave, Lucy today! #archaeology #israel

Flower's Barrow bath oil in action. This one was named after an Iron Age hill fort in Dorset, from before the Romans arrived in Britain. How could an archaeologist say no?! @lushkitchen #lush #lushkitchen #flowersbarrow #bathoil #chamomile #delphinium #archaeology #hillfort #IronAge #bath #bathtime #InstaLush #lushie

Corset hook Sunday! Recovered by Forest Service archaeologists and volunteers from the 1870s mining town of Forest City in American Fork Canyon. This is just one of six hooks on a metal strip that would have been used on a corset. Remember to leave artifacts aline on public lands so their stories can be shared!
