The Igbo tribe view Igwe as the god of the sky because he provides them with rain. The Igbo tribe also worships a minor goddess, Ala.
The Jin dynasty favored the Balhae people as well as the Khitans. Jurchen proclamations emphasized the common descent of the Balhae and Jurchen people from the seven tribes, and proclaimed "Jurchen and Balhae are from the same family". The fourth, fifth and seventh emperors of Jin were mothered by Balhae consorts. The 13th century census of Northern China by the Mongols distinguished Balhae from other ethnic groups such as Goryeo, Khitan and Jurchen. This suggests that the Balhae people still preserved their identity even after the conquest of the kingdom.

The Yup'ik culture is believed to have formed in eastern Siberia about ten-thousand years ago, then about three-thousand years ago they began to settle along the coast of Alaska. Around 1400 A.D., they migrated up the coastal rivers, settling by the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers. This is completely different than the Aboriginal origins, being on the opposite side of the world with different climates and conditions. Aboriginal culture is much older than Yup'ik culture. Thought to have originated thirty-thousand to forty five-thousand years ago, it is even possible that it began up to sixty-thousand years ago!
As Mr. Brown and Akunna discuss Chukwu, Akunna brings up the other gods. Akunna says, “He made all the world and other gods” (Achebe 109). Here is where the
King tut was probably one of the best known kings because his body was found. The same year that Tutankhamen took power, he married Ankhesenamun, his half sister and the daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Due to Tutankhaten's young age when he assumed power, the first years of his reign were probably controlled by an elder known as Ay, who bore the title of Vizier.As the populace was forced to honor Aten, the religious conversion threw the society into chaos. The capital was changed from Thebes to Amarna, and Akhenaten put all of his efforts into the religious transition,
There are various sources with conflicting information about Bodhidharma arrival in China. The Further Biographies of Eminent Monks is more detailed on the origin in Bodhidharma in that it claims that he traveled to Nanyue (now modern day northern Vietnam and Chinese Guangdong, Guangxi, and Yunnan) during the Liu Song Dynasty. The Liu Song Dynasty ruled from the years 420-479. The Long Scroll of the Treatise on the Two Entrances and Four Practices claims that Bodhidharma, after giving up his royal life in India, “Put aside his white layman’s robe for the black robe of a monk… and subsequently crossed distant mountains and sea, traveling about and propagating the teaching in Han and Wei.” Han and Wei probably refers to the states of Cao Wei
Yayoi Kusama’s work has transcended two of the most important art movements of the second half of the 20th century: minimalism and pop art. Plagued by mental illness as a child, and thoroughly abused by a callous mother, the young artist persevered by using her hallucinations and personal obsessions as fodder for prolific artistic output in various disciplines. This has informed a lifelong commitment to creativity at all costs despite the artist’s birth into a traditional female-effacing Japanese culture, and her career’s coming of age in the male dominated New York scene. Her extraordinary career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentation, literary works, outdoor installations, sculpture, fashion, films, design and intervention within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic to macroscopic universe. Yayoi Kusama was born on March, 22, 1929 in Matsumoto, Japan as the youngest of four children in a wealthy family.
“When James refused to publish any of his brother’s writing, 16-year-old Ben adopted the pseudonym Mrs. Silence Dogood, and “her” 14 imaginative and witty letters delighted readers of his brother’s newspaper, The New England Courant.” His brother James quickly grew very angry. Benjamin illegally left boston in 1723 and escaped to new york before settling in philadelphia in which will later become ben's home for the rest of his life yet to come. In 1724 young Benjamin left for london. One thing I found really interesting about Benjamin Franklin was is, when he was in london is that, Benjamin Franklin who was a self taught swimmer crafted his own wooden flippers.
Asuka Period (552-710 AD). The introduction of Buddhism in the middle of the 6th century. made significant changes to the way of life and thinking of the Japanese and was the impetus for the development of the art of this and subsequent periods.
