Hatshepsut’s reign as pharaoh strongly emphasised her close relationship and devotion to the god Amun. According to Lawless, Hatshepsut did more than any other Pharaoh to raise the status of Amun beyond all other gods. She achieved this by emphasising her filial relationship with the god, most evident in the divine birth scene in her mortuary temple at Deir El Bahri and through the Oracle, which was later inscribed on the walls of the Red Chapel at Karnak. These pieces of evidence are vital in explaining Hatshepsut’s devotion to Amun. However, the relationship between Hatshepsut and Amun was a reciprocal arrangement as through the glorification of her father she promoted the priesthood and rewarded them for their support towards her legitimacy which led to their growth in wealth and political power during her reign.
Located atop a hillock, the city’s core consists of the red sandstone palace complex and the Jami Masjid within which lies the marble tomb of Sufi saint Salim Chisti, whom Akbar revered. The approach from the Agra Gate had houses of nobles on either side, a bazaar, a mint house, the royal kitchen and the house of the noble of kitchens, reflecting great planning. From here the palace complex begins with from the Diwan-i-Aam an open raised courtyard with trabeate corridors, just behind which is a structure named the Diwan-i-Khass. This red sandstone building has an interesting interior with a circular carved pillar with serpentine brackets at its centre supporting four walkways to each corner of the square room. Asher and Brown maintain that Akbar sat atop this pillar and heard disputes with the arrangement symbolizing ‘dominion over the four quarters’, yet S.A.A Rizvi holds this was actually a royal jewel house owing to the chambers within the pillar.
The River Valley Civilizations of ancient China, Egypt and Mesopotamia were crucial contributions to future civilizations. They invented new ways of writing, laws to help keep civilization and society just and controlled and developed trade routes to help spread cultural diffusion. In documents 1 & 4, they talk about the two different types of writing, cuneiform and hieroglyphics. Cuneiform was the world’s first written language, created over 5,000 years ago by Sumerians.
Introduction: The Two Buildings; Parthenon in Athens and Pantheon in Rome are both classical heritage of the former world powers. Both buildings were temple built and dedicated to the gods of Athens and Romans. The excellent strength and the durability of these temples are unimaginable. Going by the length of time that these buildings have been in existence, one cannot but admires the brilliance of the ancient Greek and Roman architects for such excellent edifices that have outlived many generations, and yet remain a symbol of ancient Greek and Roman history.
You can identify them as officers or warriors of high importa nce due to their uniforms. There is both a historical reason and a folk tale behind the terracotta warriors. The historical reason is that the current emperor at the time, Emperor Qin, would need an army to accompany him in the afterlife and to grant him immorta lity in the afterlife. The warriors would also serve as protection the emperor 's tomb. Construction on the warriors began in 246BC.
The second person I chose was Archimedes. He too, had many outstanding achievements and features, but I’m only highlighting two important things. He had created some of the first and most famous simple machines; the pulley, lever, and fulcrum. They are actually still used today, and they are amazing inventions for his time.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or as more know him Mahatma Gandhi fought and died for the independance of India, even through all the cruelty people say that the British ruling helped shape modern India, did the British really help shape modern India? While many people would agree that the impact the British had was negative, but Dr.Lavani says otherwise, Lavani says that the British Helped India with their Efficient Government admission of 500 million people(Political)(Doc 6), they also built tons of mines, canals, sewers, and roads(Economic)(Doc 10), they as well protected wildlife and ancient buildings and also built universities and museums(Social)(Doc 11 & 17). Political Dr.Lavani’s side of the Argument is that the british helped build or set in stone the creation of modern India, some positives the British brought Politicly were things like really well trained armies, and great Administration(Doc 13 & 6), but that doesn’t mean the British didn’t do anything wrong, the British had only 60 Indians in Government(Doc 2), and the British used armed forces on
The Middle Kingdom subjects now had a place in the afterlife, formerly reserved for rulers and royalty. In Babylonia, humans teamed
Similar to the ancient Egypt, the pyramids of Giza have four sided base and these structures are also oriented to the cardinal points of the compass. Moreover, the pyramid is also a stairway to connect themselves to their gods. Likewise, Egyptian civilization is hierarchical, the pyramids of Giza are a way to emphasize that they are elite and in the top of the hierarchy. In ancient Egypt, they believed that there is after life and that there is a ka or royal life force that would need a dwelling thus elites built a funerary temple called mastaba. The
The Chartres Cathedral is one of the most notable pieces of gothic architecture, and many people have been impressed and in awe of the cathedral since it has been built. This includes American filmmaker, Orson Welles. In his final film he highlights the Chartres Cathedral by saying: This has been standing here for centuries. The premier work of man perhaps in the whole Western world, and it’s without a signature:
Hatshepsut was Thutmose I’s eldest daughter Some people believe that Mutnofret was the daughter of Ahmosel. When Hatshepsut’s father died, in 1493 BC, the throne was passed down to her half brother Thutmose II. In Egypt it wasn’t odd for royalty to marry their family members or siblings. Thutmose II and Hatshepsut ended up having a daughter named Neferure, but the male heir was an infant that a concubine named Isis. A concubine is pretty much like a mistress.
There is no surprise that Thutmose III became one of the supreme pharaohs of the New Kingdom given the leadership and opportunities afforded to him through his co-regency with Hatshepsut. In truth, judging from the attack on her monuments, Hatshepsut was perhaps a little too good in concerns of being a pharaoh.
According to M.E.L. Mallowan the palace “was the king’s crowning architectural triumph-majestically planned and powerfully adorned” which gives an insight about what function this palace has had in greater context The sone panels of the relief are monumental in size, and access to them—their placement on the walls of
