Paintings of Thanjavur - Filling Final Round

Thanjavur paintings are notable for their adornment in the form of semi-precious stones, pearls, glass pieces and gold. The first stage of painting process is preparing a base or canvas for the painting. Traditionally only three colors of stones are used in the painting that is red, green and white. The glass stones are fixed using adhesive on the places where jewels and accessories are drawn. Thin chalk powder paste is applied on the pasted stones and areas where embossed effect is needed. Once it is dried, wet cloth is used to clean the paste off the stones. Thick paste of chalk powder is poured in a cone to make the designs on the painting. This design is locally called ‘nice subbal’. The designs are drawn on the borders, jewels, thrown and on other accessories and kept to dry. Once dried, gold leaf is cut into required shape, size to paste on the embossed area and design. The next step is painting.

Ancient Indian Sculptures show International Connections - Brihadeeswarar Temple

We are in Brihadeeswara Temple in India, and I am going to show some solid evidence that ancient Indians were well connected to the rest of the world. This temple was built in 1010 A.D, so it's just over a thousand years old. You can see plenty of Gods and saints carved on the temple tower, but here you can see a European carved on the temple. This is really surprising because Historians will tell us the first European to reach South India was Vasco Da Gama in 1498, but this temple was built 500 years before his arrival. Does this carving really show a European? To understand this, let's take a look at this carving in the same temple which shows how ancient Indians looked and dressed. You can see how they wore a lot of jewelry, but usually did not wear shirts because South India is a very hot place. Notice the hairdo where they pulled up the hair to the side. This is confirmed by another carving which shows a similar hairdo, and it also shows a broad nose. Going back to this figure, you'll see the exact opposite. He wears a top hat, but no jewelry. His shirt is shown with long sleeves and a collar because it is usually cold in Europe. His nose is carved sharp, and he even has a beard, as opposed to Indians who were clean shaven. His hair is let loose to the sides, and if you look at his hands and his face, it is almost looking like he is posing for the sculptor who made it. If you compare this carving with Robert II, the King of France during the same period, it is almost an accurate match. Notice that the beard and the hair of the King matches with the carving. Even the long sleeves and collar are consistent. The only difference is that the King is shown with a crown in Europe, and here he is shown with a hat. It is very likely that this carving shows King Robert II of France because only Gods, Kings and Saints are usually carved on Hindu temple towers. How is such an accurate carving possible? Were the world leaders connected 1000 years ago, just like they are connected today? Are there any other carvings in this temple that show people from other countries as well? Here is another carving in the same temple that is also quite incredible. This clearly shows a Chinese man with a long beard and a long mustache. Here is a painting of an ancient King who ruled China. Look how, he too has a long beard and a long mustache. Remarkably, he wears a similar headdress in the painting, just like the carving shows. History tells us that the world was not connected before 1500s, but these carvings clearly show that the Indian King Raja Raja had international connections on both sides of the world. How were these international communications possible without advanced technology? Please visit http://www.phenomenalplace.com for intriguing and interesting places on the planet.

Learn Meenakari Painting - How to Paint Meenakari Painting - Acrylic Painting Lessons

Meenakari is the art of coloring and ornamenting the surface of metals by fusing over it brilliant colors that are decorated in an intricate design. Mina is the feminine form of Minoo in Persian, meaning heaven. Mina refers to the Azure colour of heaven. The Iranian craftsmen of Sasanied era invented this art and Mongols spread it to India and other countries. French tourist, Jean Chardin, who toured Iran during the Safavid rule, made a reference to an enamel work of Isfahan, which comprised a pattern of birds and animals on a floral background in light blue, green, yellow and red. Gold has been used traditionally for Meenakari Jewellery as it holds the enamel better, lasts longer and its luster brings out the colors of the enamels. Silver, a later introduction, is used for artifacts like boxes, bowls, spoons, and art pieces while Copper which is used for handicraft products were introduced only after the Gold Control Act, which compelled the Meenakars to look for a material other than gold, was enforced in India. Initially, the work of Meenakari often went unnoticed as this art was traditionally used as a backing for the famous kundan or stone-studded jewellery. This also allowed the wearer to reverse the jewellery as also promised a special joy in the secret of the hidden design!

I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed

Learn the secrets of success from those who built their own empires from scratch. You can try adopting the habits of super rich people and see how it will help you save money. Successful people are rarely night owls; they go to bed and wake up quite early. So this was the first habit I decided to take on. By the end of the first week, I noticed that I was able to do way more before noon than I could ever do during the whole day. One more week into the experiment I started waking up completely well-rested and excited to start a new day. Self-made successes swear by exercising every day for at least 30 minutes. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I became more concentrated and calmer. If meditating helps successful people stay on top of their game, it should help me out too. Networking is like currency for successful people. A lot of successful people (like Steve Jobs, for instance) keep a super minimalistic approach to fashion, often wearing the same outfit every day. Truly smart and successful people control their expenses and don’t spend their money on useless things.
