was born in Surabaya, Indonesia, on January 8, 1977. For Daniel photography is about imagination, emotion and trying to put a little of your soul into every picture you take. It really doesn’t matter what gear you have. He always imagine what I want to say in each of the pictures. Creating a real picture becomes unreal in his camera this is what he love about photography.

The Rotunda stands to the north of the terminus of the
Sacred Way, between the Hall of Choral Dancers and the Anaktoron. An inscription carved into the architrave
above the door identifies the building’s dedicator as Arsinoe II of Egypt. The
function of the Rotunda remains obscure.
It might have been intended as a place for sacrifices and important
gatherings during the festival.
The Rotunda is the largest enclosed free space in a round
building in the Greek world. The
building rests on a deep limestone foundation, while most of the superstructure
is constructed in Thasian marble. Above
the foundation, a smooth, enclosed drum, making up roughly two-third of the
building, supports a gallery formed by Doric pilasters on the exterior and
Corinthian half-columns on the interior.
Between the pilasters are panels decorated with sacrificial imagery of
bucrania flanking rosettes. On the
interior, the relief panels take the form of altars decorated with pairs of
buchrania or pairs of rosettes. The
original conical roof was covered with scale-shaped terracotta tiles. A
single Doric doorway located on the southeastern side of the Rotunda, provided
the only entrance. The floor probably
was made of earth, as no trace of pavement or under-pavement survives.
Neo-Assyrian Glazed Terracotta Tile from Nimrud (Kalhu), Iraq, c. 883-859 BC
A clue to the colour scheme of an ancient palace:
This glazed tile was found by the excavator Henry Layard at the Assyrian city of Nimrud. Along with the stone reliefs, it was part of the decorative scheme of the royal palace, although few examples survived Nimrud’s destruction in the seventh century BC.
This example depicts an Assyrian king, possibly Ashurnasirpal II (reigned 883-859 BC), accompanied by his bodyguard and attendants. It was probably part of a sequence showing the king as triumphant warrior and hunter. Such tiles provide a clue to the kind of colour scheme used for the relief panels. The decoration was executed in yellow, black and green (perhaps originally red) paint. These were made from natural materials.
It is likely that most major Assyrian buildings had paintwork at least in the reception rooms. Ashurnasirpal recorded that he had represented his triumphs in paintings. There were murals on the walls above the carved stone panels and the ceilings were also painted.
Glazed bricks are mentioned first in the second half of the second millennium BC when the mastery of the mechanical properties of glass had become known.

begin with Ganondorf’s dialogue, after your last fight in Hyrule
Field, in Twilight Princess. We know his quote off by heart:
“Do not think
this ends here… The history of light and shadow will be written in
blood!”, but thanks to a game text dump found at The Cutting Room
Floor, we’re now blessed with what he should have said:”When the
chosen ones appear… They are always born into this world in perfect
balance. That is the destiny of the chosen. That is the fate decreed
by your gods, the only path for those who bear their crests. When
this world brings forth another marked as you are… Know too, that
it shall also be visited by one of my blood. Do not think this end
here… The history of light and shadow will be written in blood!”
know that there exists a cycle of incarnation, particularly since
Demise’s defeat in Skyward Sword, but this quote confirms it tenfold.
And the way it’s worded is, I feel, key to what is coming next in the
we have the existence of some detailed bass relief panels in Hyrule
Castle Town, courtesy of Twilight Princess HD. Three panels repeated:
first is a Goron, communicating with three humans — a man, woman,
and child — in the presence of the Triforce; the second shows the
man and child, in-between two avian people; the third has the woman
and child, with an Oocca mother and child, apparently fending off an
armoured Zora warrior. Initially, many believed the winged folk from
the middle panel were simply Rito — the winged humanoid race who
claim descent from the Zora tribe — but the Rito only came into
being from stresses specific to the deluge of Hyrule, which only
occurred in the Child Link timeline (i.e., The Wind Waker). So who
exactly are these folk, if not Rito? Well, the latest couple of
videos from Nintendo — the E3'16 trailer, and the Treehouse Let’s
Play — revealed a wholly new class of avian folk, who will make
their debut in Breath of the Wild! I think it’s obvious that the
winged men in this fresco are meant to represent these very people.
of the most popular theories out there right now, compares the
architecture/design and location of the as-of-yet unnamed bridge
spanning what we can surmise is Lake Hylia in Breath of the Wild, to
the Bridge of Hylia which we first lay our eyes on in — you guessed
it — Twilight Princess. This great bridge spans the expanse of Lake
Hylia, yet at the time we see it in Twilight, it has definitely seen
better days; in Breath of the Wild, the bridge — like the Temple of
Time — is certainly aged, but it seems… grander; much like there
was a resurgence of Hyrule, and its bygone ruins of its former glory
were touched up again: only to succumb to the wrath of time once
of time, the Temple of Time has been completely renovated to almost
match brick-for-brick its heyday during the Era of the Hero of Time…
only to have fallen into some disrepair since the coming of Calamity
Ganon. And, for the same reasons as to why I feel the Bridge of Hylia
was renewed, I feel the Temple of Time was refit and rebuilt to
honour the gods during a new Silver Age of the Hyrulean Kingdom. And
around the Temple of Time, nearly freed from its Lost Woods’ burial,
are the remnants of the first Hyrule Castle Market Town: and the
forerunner Hyrule Castle itself! But by this time, it has exchanged
custody to the Sheikah as a monastery — the Eastern Abbey — only
to be left to the elements again for more than a century…
come now to another element of tying these two games together: an icy
element. I’m speaking, of course, of the northern mountain of
Snowpeak. This weathered alpine landscape is glaciated, riven with
deep gorges, and home to several frigid lakes, and it lays in the
northwestern reaches of the Kingdom: opposite of the fiery Death
Mountain. While we haven’t seen very much of this region (or many
others, for that matter, outside of the Great Plateau) we can see it:
a) from the Plateau, due NE; b) in the cutscene where the Sheikah
towers activate across the kingdom. This region on the map is west of
the dark “deep” cut, in the upper lefthand side, with a lot of
lighter “high” terrain.
but not least, we have the real nail-in-the-coffin to this sequel
theory: Hyrule Castle and its environs are nearly a perfect
match-by-match between these two games, from the castle’s layout, its
architecture, and spires, to the layout of the town ruins’ plaza —
complete with royal/Hylia crest fountain piece — and its situation
in the north-central region of the world map. I’ve seen comparisons
of these two places online, and it’s astounding! Either these are
very elaborate easter eggs, intended to make us feel like we’re in
familiar territory, or they are screaming clues to how this
undoubtedly fantastic title will fit into the official Zelda
a bonus, we have another piece of evidence… the Korok! We know
these loveable, woody children from The Wind Waker, where they are
the forms taken by the fairy children (i.e., the Kokiri from Ocarina
of Time) due to their home being flooded centuries past. However,
there is another side to this: the Kokiri appearing as children may
simply be that, an appearance. Their father is a living, sapient
tree: they are suited to being a plant-like life form from the start,
with long lives. When their Father died (this occurs before Link
pulls the Master Sword, ergo, it occurs in the Child Timeline as well
as the Adult), the Kokiri would have been left without a patriarch; a
protector. Since the Hero of Time was essential in clearing the
Forest Temple and bringing the new Deku Tree sapling into the light
of day, it can safely be assumed that the sapling did not grow in the
Child Timeline… so, left to their own devices, in a world where
humans were ever expanding… they took on more plant-like
attributes, and took to the skies, finding nooks, glades, and springs
to hide themselves away from prying eyes. This explains why we do not
see them in Twilight Princess — but we do see their old home, then
known as a Forest Temple to the people of Hyrule. The fairy children
became Korok to hide from humans and monsters in a world without
EDIT: New evidence from the latest trailer kills my theory on the Koroks and the Great Deku Tree’s demise: he’s alive! And he’s guarding the Master Sword?!
EDIT#2:The sky folk are indeed the Rito tribe; they are wholly separate from the Zora, however, and seem to be their own unique species. One that evolved naturally, which still directly contradicts their origins presented in The Wind Waker. Seeing as how these bird men have been presented in etchings from the Child Link timeline, these new, true Rito have likely existed since the time before: perhaps a natural evolution of the Loftwing? These are the only other divine, sentient race associated with both Hyrule and the skies whilst being separate from the Oocca who, c'mon, cannot have made the City in the Sky. They’re entire civilization, from their tools to architecture, are designed for or by human-sized beings, which the Oocca aren’t.
Its actual purpose is unknown, but the most probable scenario is that it formed a monumental gate where the vicus Jugarius entered the Forum Boarium. As the dedicatory inscription says, it was commissioned not by the state or emperor, but by the local money-changers (argentarii) and merchants (negotiantes), in honour of Septimius Severus and his family. The top was possibly once decorated with statues of the imperial family, now long gone.
It is built of white marble, except for the base which is of travertine. The dedicatory inscription is framed by two bas-reliefs representing Hercules and a genius. The panels lining the passage present two sacrificial scenes - on the right/east, Septimius Severus, Julia Domna and Geta, on the left/west side Caracalla with his wife and father in law Fulvia Plautilla and Gaius Fulvius Plautianus.
The figures of Caracalla’s brother, father in law and wife on the passage panels and on the banners on the outside, and their names on the dedicatory inscription, were chiselled out after Caracalla seized sole power and assassinated them.
These sacrificial scenes gave rise to the popular but incorrect saying about the arch that
Tra la vacca e il toro, troverai un gran tesoro
(Between the cow and the bull - i.e., within the arch - , you’ll find a great treasure).
This led past treasure-hunters to drill many holes in it, which are still visible.
Above the main reliefs, are smaller panels with Victories or eagles holding up victors’ wreaths, and beneath them more sacrificial scenes. The external decoration of the pillars includes soldiers, barbarian prisoners, military banners (with busts of the imperial family) and a now damaged figure in a short tunic
Erastus Salisbury Field - Historical Monument of the American Republic - 1867–1888
“Field’s grand Historical Monument, painted in response to the Civil War and in anticipation of the nation’s Centennial, encyclopedically charts America’s early history. On more than 130 simulated relief panels set into ten painted towers, the 150-square-foot picture chronicles 250 years of American history, from Jamestown to the Centennial of 1876.”
