Also Civilization: A New Dawn and A Game of Thrones Catan for sale too! And got a couple of gifts for some people and Mansions of Madness 1st Edition, so I can use the minis in the 2nd. All for super cheap. And they were giving out surprise free games too, that's how I got Aztlán.

#Makli #Necropolis features several large funerary #monuments. The site was inscribed as a @UNESCO #World #HeritageSite in 1981 as an "outstanding testament" to #Sindhi #civilization between 14th and 18th centuries. #BeautifulPakistan @Pakistaninpics @PakistanNature
Sumerian men of Mesopotamia typically wore waist strings or small loincloths that provided barely any coverage. However, later the wraparound skirt was introduced, which hung to the knee or lower and was held up by a thick, rounded belt that tied in the back. These skirts were typically decorated with fringe or pieces of fabric cut in a petal shape. Sumerian women seem to have worn only a shawl wrapped around their bodies. These shawls were often decorated with simple border patterns or allover patterns. Later Sumerian women typically wore sewn outfits covered with tiers of fringe. Babylonians wore skirts and shawls very similar to the Sumerians, although some men during Babylonian rule did wear loin skirts with a hemline that slanted from the upper knee in the front to the calf in the back. The Babylonian goddesses are shown wearing sleeved dresses with fitted bodices, V necks, and straight skirts. The Assyrians continued to wear fringed garments. Both men and women wrapped fringed shawls over their shoulders and around their waists to cover themselves from their shoulders to nearly their ankles. These were held in place by belts. Later on Assyrian men began wearing belted knee-length tunics with short sleeves. Men of high status, such as kings and military officers, also wore woolen cloaks dyed blue, red, purple, or white. ——————————————— ‎الرجال السومريين في بلاد الرافدين عادة ما يرتدون سلاسل الخصر أو مخيط صغير التي توفر بالكاد أي تغطية ‎ولم ترتدي النساء السومريات سوى شال ملفوف حول أجسادهن. وكانت هذه الشالات مزينة في كثير من الأحيان مع أنماط الحدود بسيطة أو جميع الأنماط ‎ارتدى البابليون التنانير والشالات مشابهة جدا للسومريين، على الرغم من أن بعض الرجال أثناء الحكم البابلي كانوا يرتدون التنانير الطويلة ‎استمر الآشوريون في ارتداء الملابس الملبسة. كل من الرجال والنساء ملفوفة شالات مهدب على أكتافهم وحول خصومهم لتغطية أنفسهم من أكتافهم إلى الكاحلين تقريبا. كانت هذه في مكانها بواسطة الأحزمة. #iraqi_pictures  #mesopotamia  #people #babylon  #assyrian  #empire  #sumerian #history  #akkadian  #IraqMsptmia  #Baghdad  #Iraqesque #MyIraq  #Everydayiraq  #IRAQ  #old #gilgamesh  #enkidu  #nebuchadnezzar #uruk #civilization #العراق #بغداد #تاريخ #تراث Resource: @ancient.mesopotamia

A very #important and #sentimental #moment for our family and we are proud that we were able to be a small part of our Cypriot #civilization and #culture.
My entry for #casersat30 #influencecontest INFLUENCE Acrylic paint marker and pen on paper 30 x 21cm 2017 As Africans, civilization (slavery) has been a great influence on us and our mother tongues. We have been seduced by the desire to communicate in another man's language - English; talk about how hugely one language influences a people. Thus, we have paid little or no attention to our first language. Here, the mother tongue is being caged because we have been made to believe that if we speak it, we are speaking a vernacular (for the unlearned). However, this can be corrected when we begin to place priority on our indigenous languages, same as (or more than) we place on English in individual homes, starting with our children. #painting #artwork #semiabstractart #semiabstractpainting #africanmotifs #paintmarkers #influence #acrylicpaintmarkers #artcontest #mothertongue #civilization #art #artist #lekanskillz
