Treasure: 👉 Tutankhamun Death Mask - 1323 B.C.
Civilization: 🔱Ancient Egypt 
Where:📍#Cairo - Egyptian Museum 
Photo: 📸@the_holy_egypt 
Family: 👉@europe_treasures | @tesori_italiani⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 The Mask of Tutankhamun is a death mask of the 18th-dynasty ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun (reigned 1332–1323 BC). It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1925 in tomb KV62 and is now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The mask is one of the most well known works of art in the world. The mask is 54 cm tall, 39.3 cm wide and 49 cm deep. It is fashioned from two layers of high-karat gold, varying from 1.5–3 mm (0.059–0.118 in) in thickness, and weighing 10.23 kg (22.6 lb). X-ray crystallography has revealed that the mask contains two alloys of gold: a lighter 18.4 karat shade for the face and neck, and 22.5 karat gold for the rest of the mask. The face represents the pharaoh's standard image, and the same image was found by excavators elsewhere in the tomb, in particular in the guardian statues. He wears a nemes headcloth, topped by the royal insignia of a cobra (Wadjet) and vulture (Nekhbet), symbolising Tutankhamun's rule of both Lower Egypt and Upper Egypt respectively. The ears are pierced to hold earrings, a feature that appears to have been reserved for queens and children in almost all surviving ancient Egyptian works of art. It contains inlays of coloured glass and gemstones, including lapis lazuli (the eye surrounds and eyebrows), quartz (the eyes), obsidian (the pupils), carnelian, feldspar, turquoise, amazonite, faience and other stones (as inlays of the broad collar). 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛

  • Si existe un zoco famoso en el mundo sin duda se trata de el khan al-Khalil, el mercado del Cairo en Egipto. Perderse entre las callejuelas es una auténtica locura 😅 donde encontrarás de todo, pero lo que más me gustó fueron rincones como este.
¡ Feliz fin de semana a tod@s!

If there is a famous souk in the world it is undoubtedly the Khan al-Khalil, the Cairo market in Egypt. Getting lost in the alleyways is a real madness 😅 where you will find everything, but what I liked the most were corners like this one.
Happy weekend to everyone!

  • Dwight D. York (born June 26, 1945), also known as Malachi Z. #York, Issa Al Haadi Al Mahdi, Dr. York, et alii, is an #American musician and writer who is known as the founding leader of various #religious / #political groups, including most notably the #cult #Nuwaubian movement. He is a convicted child molester.
He and his group were based in Brooklyn, New York. Around 1990 the community relocated to rural Putnam County, Georgia, where they built a large complex. York was convicted in 2004 of child molestation and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. He is serving a 135-year sentence.

York began his ministry in the late 1960s. In 1967 he was preaching to the "Ansaaru Allah" (viz. African Americans) in Brooklyn, New York, during the period of the #BlackPower movement. He founded numerous orders under various names during the 1970s and 1980s. These were at first based on #pseudo -#Islamic themes and #Judaism (Nubian Islamic Hebrews). Later he developed a theme derived from "#Ancient #Egypt," mixing ideas taken from black #nationalism, cryptozoological and #UFO religions, and popular #conspiracytheory. He last called his group the United Nuwaubian Nation of #Moors, or Nuwabians.

York and the Nuwaubians came under scrutiny in the early 1990s, after they built Tama-Re, an #Egyptian -themed "city" for about a hundred of his followers, in rural Putnam County, Georgia. Before York's trial, the community had been joined directly and in the area by hundreds of other followers from out of state, while alienating both black and white local residents. The community was intensively investigated after numerous reports that York had molested numerous children of his followers.

York was arrested in May 2002. In 2004 he was convicted on federal charges of transporting minors across state lines for the purposes of sexual #molestation, as well as #racketeering and financial reporting violations. York's case was reported as the largest prosecution for #childmolestation ever directed at a single person in the history of the United States, both in terms of number of victims and number of incidents.

  • Qaitbay, fortress of Alexandria
.
.

Qaitbay menatap jauh ke depan, laut Mediteranian yang membiru menghempaskan ombaknya keras. Akhirnya, selesai juga pembangunan benteng ini. Benteng yang ia janjikan kepada sang sultan, sesaat setelah ia diangkat menjadi panglima militer. "Dasar budak bodoh, tak berguna! Untuk apa Kau belajar, hah? Kamu itu cuma budak, tak punya masa depan, cuih!" Seorang lelaki memaki dan meludahi budaknya, seorang pemuda yang mempunyai tatapan mata setajam Elang. Ia berang, karena mengetahui budaknya sedang belajar menulis. .

Sultan Jaqmaq yang kala itu sedang menyamar, membeli budak lelaki bermata Elang. Dia tak bertanya berapa harganya, namun sekantung uang emas mampu membuat pria kasar itu melepaskan budak lelakinya. "Siapa namamu?" tanya Sultan. "Qaitbay," jawab si budak. Sultan tersenyum, ia tahu, budak lelaki ini kelak akan menjadi orang besar. Tahun berlalu, Qaitbay selalu mengikuti Sultan Jaqmaq, belajar dan belajar, hingga akhirnya ia diangkat menjadi kepala militer. Sultan meminta Qaitbay membuatkan satu benteng besar, sebagai pertahanan kota Alexandria dari ancaman musuh.

Belum sempat benteng berdiri, sultan Jaqmaq berpulang ke sisi penciptanya. Qaitbay bersedih hati, namun Syuro mendaulat dirinya meneruskan tampuk kekuasaan. Qaitbay naik tahta, seorang budak yang menjelma menjadi sultan. Hingga hari itu, benteng yang dijanjikanya terbangun sudah. Janjinya pada sultan terlunasi. "Labbaik ya Maulayaa!" Qaitbay tersenyum, menyahut panggilan tuannya.
