AMAZING and AWESOME Artifacts (Some rather earthy)



Samurai helmet (kabuko) shaped like an octopus. About 18th century, Japan



Cockpit of Spirit of St. Louis




17th Century silver watch



Shigir Idol - oldest known wooden sculpture in the world, made during the Mesolithic period, around 10 000 BC.


Many, many more - well worth viewing:

1. Thank you! Awesome is an understatement.

I enjoyed every picture.
I did notice though that the one labeled "eight sarcophagi containing mummies standing on a cliff side"
resembles the statues on Easter Island.

2. what fun

The cat and the manuscript cracked me up! The little drawings were very funny.

And the helmet of the Roman emporer--it's hard for me to imagine anyone wearing such a thing!

Thanks for these, packman. I will enjoying perusing them throughout the day.

I went on to see the 123 pictures. I was glued to my chair. It's amazing to think of past civilizations and how they lived. Thank you for this.

10. The Spirit of St. Louis cockpit

If it looks like Lindy couldn't see forward because of that enormous instrument panel, you're right.
