Princess of Hope & Sphinx Like Structure 740 Year Old Mountain Near Gwadar, Makuran Coastal Highway!

Hingol National Park is located along the Makran coast in southwestern Balochistan Province, southwestern Pakistan. It lies within sections of Lasbela District, Gwadar District, and Awaran District. The Gulf of Oman of the Arabian Sea are to the south.[1]The provincial capital of Karachi is approximately 190 kilometres (120 mi) to the southeast on the coast.

Princess of Hope: The Princess of Hope is a statue, founded in Hingol National Park lies on the Makran coast in Baluchistan and approximately 275 km from Karachi. The name Princess of Hope was given by Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie on her visit to this area acting as the UN Ambassador of Goodwill in 2002.

The Natural Sphinx: Only companion of Princess of Hope is a Sphinx like structure. The Sphinx are mainly associated with Egypt, which were sculpted figures as Egyptian deities. These Sphinx like the Great Sphinx of Giza were constructed on the order of the Pharaohs to depict the pharaoh being the son of God. These have many religious and cultural symbolisms.

Princess of Hope & Sphinx – Structure Cause: The coast of Makran has muddy hills with very fast winds blowing throughout the year. These fast winds cut through the muddy hills and mountains and can result in a natural rock formation shaped like a standing lady (Princess of Hope) or sphinx. The Natural Sphinx is obviously not as sharply carved as the sphinx in Egypt however this is worth seeing once in a lifetime.

The Mystery of “Unknown Man E”. Is Murderous Son of Ramesses III?

Pentawer (Unknown Man E):

tumblr_nzulx7t6KN1unzunjo1_500

Pentawer (or Pentaweret) was an ancient Egyptian prince of the 20th dynasty, a son of Pharaoh Ramesses III and a secondary wife, Tiye. He was involved in the so-called “harem conspiracy“, a plot to kill his father and place Pentawer on the throne. He either killed himself or was executed following the assassination attempt.

Conspiracy:

Pentawer was to be the beneficiary of the harem conspiracy, probably initiated by his mother Tiye to assassinate the pharaoh. Tiye wanted her son to succeed the pharaoh, even though the chosen heir was a son of the chief queen Iset Ta-Hemdjert. According to the Judicial Papyrus of Turin Pentawer was among those who were made to stand trial for their participation in the conspiracy. It is likely that he was forced to kill himself. The papyrus refers to this laconically:

They [i.e. the judges] left him in his place, he took his own life.

Historian Susan Redford speculates that Pentawer, being a noble, was given the option to kill himself by taking poison and so be spared the humiliating fate of some of the other conspirators who would have been burned alive with their ashes strewn in the streets. Such punishment served to make a strong example since it emphasized the gravity of their treason for ancient Egyptians who believed that one could only attain an afterlife if one’s body was mummified and preserved — rather than being destroyed by fire.

“We found this mummy is covered in sheepskin,” said Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities and a National GeographicExplorer-in-Residence.

“In the mind of the ancient Egyptian. … To cover with sheepskin means he was not clean, he did something [bad] in his life,” Hawass added.

Pentewere could have been sentenced to death by poison, after the murderous plans were revealed, according to Hawass and Brier.

The Unknown Man E was found without a grave marking, which would have prevented him from reaching the afterlife—a possible additional punishment for being part of a murder plot.

However, the denial of an afterlife contradicts careful mummification—something usually reserved for celebrated members of society, said Brier.

Desperate Attempt

Brier, a mummification expert, believes the Unknown Man E was mummified quickly because he did not have his brain or internal organs removed, nor was he completely dehydrated. Additionally, crude methods were used for his mummification.

“[Resin] is normally introduced into the cranium after removing the brain,” he explained. But in the case of the Screaming Mummy, new research has shown that resin was poured down the corpse’s throat.

“That’s kind of a half-hearted or desperate attempt,” Brier said.

So why wasn’t the body simply disposed of without mummification? An influential person could have cared about the body and made sure it was at least hastily mummified, rather than thrown away.

Does New Theory Fleck Lost City of Atlantis? |Nayab Khan

atlantis-lost-city-ruins

Atlantis is a fictional island mentioned within an allegory on the hubris of nations in Plato‘s works Timaeus and Critias, where it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges “Ancient Athens”, the pseudo-historic embodiment of Plato’s ideal state (see The Republic). In the story, Athens was able to repel the Atlantean attack.

Athanasius_Kircher's_Atlantis

Atlantis is a legendary “lost” island subcontinent often idealized as an advanced, utopian society holding wisdom that could bring world peace. The idea of Atlantis has captivated dreamers, occultists and New Agers for generations.

Unlike many legends whose origins have been lost in the mists of time, we know exactly when and where the story of Atlantis first appeared. The story was first told in two of Plato’s dialogues, the “Timaeus” and the “Critias,” written about 330 B.C.

The Word “Atlantis”

maxresdefault

A legendary island in the Atlantic Ocean west of Gibraltar, said by Plato to have sunk beneath the sea during an earthquake.

Type the word “Atlantis” into Google and 120 million results pop up. Like El Dorado or Shangri-la, the legendary sunken city of Atlantis hovers on the horizon of our imagination, tantalizing, mysterious, unreachable.

Author Mark Adams explains why he thinks Atlantis may have been off the coast of Morocco; how an Irishman created the world’s largest database of Atlantis lore; and how the parting of the Red Sea, in the biblical story in Exodus, may be connected to Atlantis.

It was Plato’s “Critias” that set people off thinking that Atlantis actually existed.

Though today Atlantis is often thought of as a peaceful utopia, the Atlantis that Plato described in his fable was very different. In his book “Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology” (McGraw-Hill, 2013) professor of archaeology Ken Feder summarizes the story: “A technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire — Atlantis — attempts world domination by force.

As propaganda, the Atlantis legend is more about the heroic Athens than a sunken civilization; if Atlantis really existed today and was found, its residents would probably try to kill and enslave us all. It’s clear that Plato made up Atlantis as a plot device for his stories because there are no other records of it anywhere else in the world. There are many extant Greek texts; surely someone else would have also mentioned, at least in passing, such a remarkable place. There is simply no evidence from any source that the legends about Atlantis existed before Plato wrote about it.

6 Clues to the Location of Atlantis

Plato:

Plato was a philosopher and mathematician in Classical Greece, and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

In modern times, the location of Atlantis has been the subject of great debate. In recent years, the number of locations chosen for that fabled land has reached some kind of critical mass bordering on the absurd.

where did Plato say that Atlantis once stood? He gives us several clues.

  1. Atlantis was a large island. This eliminates the Sahara, South America, Antarctica, the Irish Shelf and the North Sea continental shelf as candidates for Atlantis. None of these were islands twelve thousand years ago.
  2. Atlantis was beyond the Pillars of Heracles (today’s Strait of Gibraltar). This eliminates Sardinia, Corsica, Crete, Thera, Cyprus or any other location in the Mediterranean.
  3. Atlantis was in the Atlantic Ocean (the “true” ocean beyond the Mediterranean which Plato described as merely a lake with a narrow entrance). This eliminates Indonesia and any other locations outside of the Atlantic Ocean.
  4. Atlantis succumbed to a violent cataclysm and was swallowed by the sea.
  5. Atlantis was as large as Ancient Libya and Asia Minor combined. This is rather inexact, but in rough figures it would be equivalent to a body of land between one and two times the size of Texas (the largest state in the contiguous United States).
  6. The closest portion of Atlantis faced a region known as Gadira (a region in southwestern Spain, surrounding the city of Cádiz, the oldest European city on the Atlantic coast). This eliminates the South Atlantic and the recently publicized Spartel Island (Spartel is too close to Gibraltar to face Gadira, it succumbed far too slowly over thousands of years and it was far too small).

Many people see art as something with many barriers to entry – maybe the materials are expensive, maybe you don’t have the space, or maybe you think it’s difficult, requiring many specialized tools. Sometimes that’s true, but the artists here have created incredible works using almost nothing but just of its hands and paints.
Besides their stunning mastery of hands, these works grabbed our attention because of how they maked just of its hand and paints .Yet we never think about the extraordinarily beautiful pieces of hand arts that we could create with them if we ever took the time to try.Maybe you’ll get a flash of inspiration and create a work of art!14708_864011000324267_4063519084252595691_n 906387_864011013657599_6019395050032604283_o 1548081_864011206990913_7164034296499403278_o 1610898_864011136990920_7073272643986541781_n 1891309_864010950324272_1385494238483028187_o 10354727_864011076990926_4077676880691557243_n 10468632_864010860324281_8753307924397977896_n 10498090_864011373657563_5073907878703534490_o 10520575_864010840324283_5423681397961993424_o 10648901_864010953657605_4538763800437811549_o 10672311_864011100324257_6183954287982201827_n 10818368_864010926990941_4152741796546857917_o 10835122_864011276990906_8827457745848387181_o 10863856_864011236990910_7758012581677427885_o 10930172_864010870324280_1975367541010828367_n 10985967_864010970324270_6378653626773409455_o 10999427_864011126990921_1174511225243842150_o 11000047_864011043657596_5456651988708291953_n 11021345_864011196990914_5674446282354517987_o 11034059_864011053657595_648831811283338401_n 11034200_864010853657615_7965867643077387123_n 11034903_864010906990943_846515871101464326_o 11044556_864010880324279_8464736712964657360_o 11046616_864010996990934_2232822390869786720_o 11062254_864011066990927_7411035175200557541_n
