Charles Ebbets died April 18, 1925. He worked his way up from ticket taker to club manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He created Ebbets Field and is credited with inventing the "rain check", among other early baseball innovations. His rainy funeral was attended by Ed McKeever, his replacement for club president. Ed caught the flu and died four days later. And we wonder why baseball players are superstitious? . . ☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️☠️⚾️ . #brooklyn #brooklyndodgers #charlesebbets #historicgreenwood #dodgers #cemetery #graveyard #graveyards #grave #gravestone #graveyard_dead   #project_necropolis   #graveyard_freaks #gravestone   #cemetery_shots #aj_graveyards #cemeteryphotography   #graveyardbeauty #cemeterylovers #necropolis #taphophiles_only   #cemetery_nation #gravestones #graveyardphotography #headstones #talking_statues #graveyard_photogroup   #grave_gallery #taphophile #tomb #tombstone

I segni caratterizzanti dello stile Barocco, delineati dalla critica, contribuiscono a definire il fenomeno nella sua articolazione e nel suo divenire storico, nella produzione romana e italiana e nei suoi sviluppi europei. In architettura la spazialità interna, nella varietà delle soluzioni ideate, raggiunge risultati sorprendenti e fantasmagorici – soprattutto nelle sue realizzazioni estreme anche fuori dell’Italia – attraverso l’uso concatenato di volumi e di geometrie formalmente eterogenee. Negli esterni emerge la predilezione per forme plastiche sinuose, per l’uso di linee curve, per l’inclusione della luce in rinnovate concezioni spaziali che, nell’alternanza dei pieni e dei vuoti, tendono a modellare le superfici murarie. Secondo un’analoga visione, il coinvolgimento dello spazio e della luce in forme e composizioni aperte e movimentate, l’esaltazione degli ‘affetti’, la resa acutamente realistica e sensibile dell’immagine sono proprie alla scultura e alla pittura, soprattutto nella grande decorazione, dove spettacolari scenografie e complessi illusionismi prospettici si uniscono all’immaginazione e alla retorica della persuasione e della commozione che si rivolge e coinvolge lo spettatore. Il segno dominante della produzione barocca, è tuttavia l’interazione e la fusione tra tutte le arti, nella definizione di nuove strutture spaziali, in organismi monumentali e in sistemazioni urbane, che contribuirono in primo luogo alla creazione del volto di Roma barocca. . .

(🗿98) Today’s women’s statue Wednesday is a submission from a former coworker turned hermano. It was taken during his bike ride through the Quantico Marine Base in Northern Virgina. This Molly Marine statue is the 3rd casting of the original, in New Orleans, and the second sits at the Marine base on Paris Island, SC. The last picture is from the statues dedication at Quantico in 2013. * * * In 1943, in the middle of World War II, Marine Technical Sgt. Charles Gresham, a recruiter, needed a way to promote the enlistment of females into the Marine Corps. He decided on a statue of a woman in uniform.  The statue of Molly Marine was fashioned upon the likeness of former Marine and New Orleans native Judy Mosgrove The National Museum of the Marine Corps’ new Molly Marine statue stands among other Marine Corps legends in the museum’s Semper Fidelis Memorial Park. The statue was dedicated in a ceremony July 5, 2013. * * * #unitedstatuesofamerica #talking_statues #total_statues #estatua #estatuas #publicart #cityphotography #photography #sculpture #sculptures #monumentsofamerica #statue #statues #تمثا #نافورة #雕像 # 彫像 #Statuen #americanstatues #americansculpture #mollymarine #statuesofwomen #quantico #marines #marinestatues #militarystatues #militaryhistory #virginiahistory

Per dire, si continuano ad enfatizzare le " divergenze " tra i Ciinque stelle e la Lega, nello specifico tra Giggino Di Maio nostro e Matteuccio ché "vien dal Nord"! Tutti i Media millantano screzi: e sullla Tav e l' immigrazione e baba' vs panettone ... E poi litigate via #social , frecciatine acide reciproche. Ecco, niente di più FALZO! Ma vi pare che quei due simpaticoni s' appiccicano fra loro?? Uno con la faccia di Giggino ( un bimbo nel giorno della prima comunione), può mai litigare con quell' ometto paffutello metà uomo e metà divisa della polizia/finanza/ vigile del fuoco?? Ma giocano!! In realtà si adorano, si messaggiano tutti i giorni ,si scambiano i #selfie con la nutella o il lattuccio ... vanno d' accordo su tutto! Si sono pure fidanzati nello stesso momento e poi non dite che non fanno le cose insieme! Carini loro! Li avete visti sui giornali i piccioncini Giggino e la giornalista? ( e asseriscono che lui è in guerra con la stampa oh!) Avete visto che belle foto #rubate ?? Certo, non capisco come mai quando le rubano a me le foto , esco sempre come un incrocio tra un chiwawa e una scimmia invece loro due sembrano Reth e Rossella Ohara ,ma questo è un altro discorso. Come dite? La fidanzata di Matteuccio gli ha rubato i pantaloni con lo stemma della polizia che lui, a sua volta, aveva rubato in caserma e non sta bene 'sta cosa?? Avete ragione, non sta bene No! Troppo larghi le vestivano dai! E il giallo del giubbotto le sbatteva in faccia!

(🗿97) One of my favorites in Philly. One of the most powerful statues I’ve ever seen. * * * Uriah Galusha Pennypacker (June 1, 1841/1844– October 1, 1916) was a Union general during the American Civil War. He may be the youngest person to hold the rank of brigadier general in the US Army; at the age of 20, he remains the only general too young to vote for the president who appointed him. * General Pennypacker is symbolized by a bare-chested, muscular male figure dressed in classical attire consisting of sandals, a helmet, and a flapped skirt belted at the waist. The figure stands atop an elaborately decorated cannon which is flanked by two roaring tigers. He strides forward taking a giant step with his proper right leg, stepping over a protruding piece of the cannon. Both hands are clenched in fists. His proper left arm is bent toward his chest and his proper right arm swings out behind him. His head is bent downward. The sculpture rest on a rectangular base. * * * #unitedstatuesofamerica #talking_statues #total_statues #estatua #estatuas #publicart #cityphotography #photography #sculpture #sculptures #monumentsofamerica #statue #statues #تمثا #نافورة #雕像 # 彫像 #Statuen #americanstatues #americansculpture #galushapennypacker #pennypacker #pennsylvania #pennsyaniahistory #civilwar #civilwargeneral #theboygeneral #civilwarstatue

STATUA DI OCEANO, CORTILE DELLA PIGNA, MUSEI VATICANI Statua monumentale di epoca romana con ampi restauri seicenteschi raffigurante Oceano. Oceano, figlio di Urano e Gea, era una figura della mitologia greca ed era il Titano più antico. Rappresentava una fase iniziale della cosmogonia greca, in quanto personificava la grande massa d’acqua che costituiva lo spazio prima della creazione della Terra. Omero chiama Oceano l’origine degli dei e l’origine di tutto. Dalla sorella e sposa Teti ebbe tremila figli, i fiumi, e tremila figlie, le ninfe oceanine. Anche quando il mondo stava già sotto il dominio di Zeus, egli solo poté rimanere al suo posto primitivo che in realtà non era un luogo, ma solo una corrente, delimitazione e separazione dell’aldilà. Presso i Romani, il mito di Oceano era in gran parte, assorbito da quello di Fontus o Fons, immaginato figlio di Giano: e come, presso i Greci, l’Achelòo era il più grande e più venerato degli dei fluviali, così presso i Romani, il Tevere, il Padre Tevere, era considerato come una delle principali divinità tutelari di Roma. Nell’iconografia è un vecchio barbuto, spesso è rappresentata la sola testa o la maschera, con chele di gambero che spuntano tra i capelli. #beniculturali30 #world_heritages #museide #museitaliani #art_photogroup #top_unesco_photo #total_art_gallery #scatti_d_arte #heritage_italy #total_sacro #ars_sacra #religious_art_details #italia_in_art #mitologia #oceano #total_statues #talking_statues #ig_monumentalworld #igpic_roma #vivoartworld #vivovaticano #thehub_art #museivaticani #vaticanmuseum #art_creative_pictures #art_planet_pics #artemondo_ #total_monuments #roma_bestphoto #yallersroma
No românico a figura central do portal é Cristo em ascensão aos céus, como parte dos acontecimentos de Pentecostes ou no papel de juiz. Mas, no gótico, já não é o monge que inicia os fiéis no mundo iconográfico do sagrado; a fé e a experiência espiritual são, nesta fase, sobrepostos pela autoridade e lei representadas pelo clero ligado à cidade, o bispo. Deste modo passa o tema do Julgamento a representar o papel principal no portal gótico. A banda superior representa os "escolhidos" e os "condenados", separados pelo Diabo e pelo arcanjo Miguel com a balança das almas. Os que entram no paraíso levam uma coroa, uma possível alusão à santidade da coroa francesa. O tímpano apresenta Cristo na pose de Julgador revelando as chagas nas palmas das suas mãos. Nas arquivoltas Abraão recebe as almas dos escolhidos e o Diabo as dos pecadores. Concêntricos a Cristo surgem anjos, patriarcas, profetas, dignitários, mártires e virgens santas. A rematar e a fazer a transição para o nível intermédio está a "Galeria dos Reis", uma banda composta por vinte e oito estátuas de 3,5 metros de altura cada. #traveling_arte #art_creative_pictures #estaes_arte #asi_es_arte #artenelmondo #art_photogroup   #fivearts_greatpics #galiciaworldarte   #igworldclub_art #total_art_gallery #loryandalpha #fever_allart   #art_planet_pics #total_sacro #ars_sacra #fa_sacral #be_one_sacro #total_statues #talking_statues #world_heritages_ #timeless_unlimited #fever_old_stones #monumentaleurope #monumental_world #total_monuments #tv_monuments #loves_monuments #ig_monuments #monuments_photogroup #ig_monumentalworld

Tanto durante as obras de construção do edifício como depois delas, começaram a aparecer lendas inquietantes onde o Diabo aparecia como o real feitor deste templo maravilhoso saído dos esquissos cheios de pretensões macabras só conhecidas dos saberes secretos dos monges-construtores que realizaram a obra encomendada por Maurice de Sully. Uma dessas lendas, talvez a mais inquietante, diz que as duas portas de ferro forjado da catedral foram feitas pelo Diabo em pessoa, inclusive deixando o seu retrato e o da sua corte infernal esculpido junto às mesmas. #traveling_arte #art_creative_pictures #estaes_arte #asi_es_arte #artenelmondo #art_photogroup   #fivearts_greatpics #galiciaworldarte   #igworldclub_art #total_art_gallery #loryandalpha #fever_allart   #art_planet_pics #total_sacro #ars_sacra #fa_sacral #be_one_sacro #total_statues #talking_statues #world_heritages_ #timeless_unlimited #fever_old_stones #monumentaleurope #monumental_world #total_monuments #tv_monuments #loves_monuments #ig_monuments #monuments_photogroup #ig_monumentalworld

(🗿96) This statue needs no introduction. * * * The U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial's world-famous statue, which is based on the iconic photograph taken by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal, depicts the six soldiers who raised of the second American flag at Iwo Jima in the Japanese Volcano Islands on February 23, 1945, signifying the conclusion of the American campaign in the Pacific during World War II. The memorial is dedicated to “the Marine dead of all wars and their comrades of other services who fell fighting beside them.” The memorial was dedicated on November 10, 1954 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the American flag has flown from the statue 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by presidential proclamation ever since. The bronze statue was made by sculptor Felix W. de Weldon. He worked with the three surviving soldiers from the battle, Rene A. Gagnon, Ira Hayes and John H. Bradley, to model their faces in clay. The base of the memorial is engraved with every major battle involving the U.S. Marine Corps since 1775. * * * #talking_statues #unitedstatuesofamerica #estatua #estatuas #publicart #cityphotography #photography #sculpture #sculptures #monumentsofamerica #statue #statues #تمثا #نافورة #雕像 # 彫像 #Statuen #wwii #warmemorial #iwojima #warinthepacific #usmarinecorpmemorial #fdr #harrystruman #dwightdEisenhower #felixweldon
(🗿96 cont) If I’m anything, I’m a history nerd. For most posts I attempt to find pictures of the statues dedication. In that search I stumbled across these pictures compiled by the US National Park Service (hat 🎩tip to them) of the US Marine Corp memorial. First each of the 6 figures were cast in Baltimore and taken by flat bed truck to the memorial site for reassembly. Sculptor by Felix Weldon, sat with the 3 surviving members of the unit to sculpt their figures, and used pictures to depict the 3 lost in battle. The monument was dedicated with Ike and Nixon side by side beside officials from the Marines and Army. The last picture features veterans of the battle of Iwo Jima who were in attendance at the 1954 dedication. * * * #talking_statues #unitedstatuesofamerica #estatua #estatuas #publicart #cityphotography #photography #sculpture #sculptures #monumentsofamerica #statue #statues #تمثا #نافورة #雕像 # 彫像 #Statuen #wwii #warmemorial #iwojima #warinthepacific #usmarinecorpmemorial #fdr #harrystruman #dwightdEisenhower #felixweldon #nixon #nationalparkservice #historynerd #blackandwhitepictures #momumentmen
Holy Week (Latin: Hebdomas Sancta or Hebdomas Maior, "Greater Week"; Greek: Ἁγία καὶ Μεγάλη Ἑβδομάς, Hagia kai Megale Hebdomas, "Holy and Great Week") in Christianity is the week just before Easter. It is also the last week of Lent, in the West, – Palm Sunday, Holy Wednesday (Spy Wednesday), Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday), Good Friday (Holy Friday), and Holy Saturday – are all included. However, Easter Day, which begins the season of Eastertide, is not. However, traditions observing the Easter Triduum may overlap or displace part of Holy Week or Easter itself within that additional liturgical period. Holy Week and Easter Day liturgies attract the biggest crowds of the year. Many cultures have different traditions like Easter eggs, floats, sculptures of Christ's life, arrest and burial and contributing to the Great Feasts, to echo the theme of resurrection.

April 15th, 1912 is the day the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank. One of those casualties was William Augustus Spencer.

🎤 Caro amico ti scrivo così mi distraggo un po' e siccome sei molto lontano più forte ti scriverò 🎶🎶 ( Lucio Dalla) _____________________________________ Al termine di viale Carlo Felice incontriamo la statua di San Francesco. Il monumento è del 1925, e raffigura il Santo in piedi su un rialzo di gradoni di tufo, con le braccia spalancate, che guarda la basilica di San Giovanni; cinque compagni del frate si arrampicano sui gradoni. Oggi è un punto di ritrovo per ragazzi e giovani, un destino che al Santo non sarebbe dispiaciuto. ____________________________________ 🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️🔹️ 📌 Monumento a San Francesco d' Assisi, Via di Porta San Giovanni. • • • • • #luciodalla #total_art_gallery #total_statues #talking_statues #streetpassion_world #street_photogroup #vivoartworld #life_streets #inrhome #asi_es_arte #italia_in_art #italiamondopic #roma_cartoline_ #clickfor_roma #likerome #lory_center_of_italy #igpic_roma #ig_tag_italia #total_monuments #total_streets #siviaggiare_lazio #fever_streets #super_roma_channel #top_unesco_photo #cultura_in_grande #living_italia @tarantelleromane #italia_in_art @romekisses #religious_art_details #visitrome_ #art_illife
