    Wiltshire White Horses

  • Jo Smart

    An aerial view of the Uffington white horse. This was originally thought to have been carved in the Iron Age, but it has since been dated as being a bit older - Bronze Age (c 1000BCE). It is the oldest chalk figure remaining in Britain. Who made it, why and what it meant to them is not known, but I love this horse the best, as it was not made by a rich landowner in the 18th or 19th centuries!

    Photograph by kind permission of Dave Collier of the Uffington White horse in Oxforshire, England. It is bronze age and approx 350ft long... it's my favorite cliff drawing because of the dynamic shapes.

Air conditioning without electricity in a palace in Jaipur, built in 1799 by Maharaja Singh. Its unique five-storey exterior is also akin to the honeycomb of the beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas. The lattice provides cool air caused by the Venturi effect through the intricate pattern and thereby air conditioning the whole area during the high temperatures in summers. The cooling effect in the chambers, is enhanced by the fountains provided at the centre of each of the chambers
