One of the first representations of the #Buddha, 1st–2nd century CE, Gandhara in #Pakistan.
The Standing Buddha of the #Tokyo National Museum is a remarkable example of Greco-Buddhist statuary. Comparable ones can be found in the Guimet Museum in France, and

specific Greek technique of making the hands and sometimes the feet in marble to increase the realistic effect, and the rest of the body in another material.

Alfred Charles Auguste Foucher especially considered Hellenistic free-standing Buddhas as "the most beautiful,

So , vous vous rappelez de ce #thread #cultureBite @bite_culture de la semaine passé sur le #carrapide ? On avait fait le 1er tour du sujet avec son identité et son histoire au #Senegal
Dans cette 2eme partie ; nous allons nous amuser un peu à étaler ses influence culturelles.
En mai 2017 le @Musee_Homme de Paris réalise une série de court documentaire (dispo sur @YouTube) sur la symbolique du car rapide qui se termine par la révélation d’un replica du #carrapide au Musée à Paris. Vous comprenez ? ce “cercueil roulant” est symbolique 😊
Sir Instagram, il n’est pas inhabituel de voir que le hashtag #carrapide réunit un bon nombre de photographie. En effet, les photos de #car rapide dans les rues de dakar ont leur place sur @instagram et comptabilisé plus de 2,1k de mention ; c’est bon non ?

1/30 In two forthcoming pieces, I examine #Japan's response to the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic. I'll summarize the main non-theoretical points here (long thread alert!).
2/30 #Japan’s figures have always looked good compared to many other countries, which initially led to suspicion that the ‘real’ numbers of #COVID19 #coronavirus infections & death were being played down.
3/30 #Tokyo Metropolitan Government at least has now released full #COVID19 figures, including general death rates, seeming to put this argument to rest (but these figures are also now being challenged). japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/05/0…

Back from recent #Tokyo trip, many interesting discussions on #geoeconomics ie developments in 5G, investment screening, export control, industrial strategy, and the EPA/SPA. Talks with Japan's MFA, EU Delegation, think tanks and academia. Some observations: [LONG THREAD]
/1
For Tokyo, US implmt. of export controls under ECRA is next big thing. Shape and form of BIS/DoC 'emerging & foundational tech' still open but potential implications for Japanese (and EU) business is massive (extraterritorial enforcement/sanctions?)
/2

globaltradeandsanctionslaw.com/update-on-u-s-…
And Europe? As @MaaikeOh and @BrigitteDekker_ show in this recent @Clingendaelorg report, European debate on export controls almost absent, not part of any EU strategic documents (eg latest EU China Outlook). Equally pale at MS level

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

In #Tokyo's #Shibuya ward, you notice little of the threatening storm that is approaching

Until you want to get water or cash

None of the stores I visited had large water bottles (even though they bought extra stock), ATM's had people waiting
#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

Apparently there also many stores where far more than water has been sold out

#Tokyo and surrounding areas seem to be getting ready for something serious

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

Weather warnings by the Japan Meteorological Agency as of 17:39 JST on Oct 11

The typhoon is not expected in Tokyo until Saturday

20. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
