Artist: Christian Gottlieb Kratzenstein-Sub (11 August 1783 – 24 July 1816) Orpheus and Eurydice
Orpheus and Eurydice - Orpheus is best known for his beautiful music which charmed everyone & his deep love for his wife Eurydice. When she died from a snake bite, Orpheus decided to go to the Underworld and bring her back. With his music, he charmed the gods of the Hades and they allowed him to take Eurydice back with him. He was told he must not look back until they escaped. Orpheus turned back to see if Eurydice is following him and she immediately disappeared back in the world of the dead.

This monument to Russian-Georgian friendship, lonely and run down, towers above the military highway, a feat of engineering at the time of its construction between 1799 and 1817. The road was necessary for Russia to conquer the Caucasus. It also made it easier for Russia to protect Georgia against the Ottoman and Persian empires, but consequently the Georgians forfeited their independence.

Ethiopian priest on Lake Tana with an 800yr old goatskin bible

800 YEAR OLD BIBLE DISCOVERED IN LAKE TANA, ETHIOPIA (made of goat skin and protected by this Ethiopian priest)
The Bible is actually a compilation of writings, which have been added, deleted and edited over the years. The compilation of the Old Testament was begun during the captivity of the Israelite leaders in Babylon around 550 BC. The New Testament was compiled by the Nicene Council, around 325 AD. None of the words were actually written by Adam, Abraham, Moses or Jesus, but by later writers. Even the Gospels were written years after Jesus' Crucifixion.
