The Tao of impressing a female, in a bird’s life ~~


These are actually really cool because in the little dancing troupe, there’s only one male that will mate with her, the oldest/dominant one. The others learn and wait for the day where they can take over.

“Relief of the Liberation of a Besieged City”
A wooden relief (perhaps a wall decoration) of the driving-off of barbarian invaders from an abstracted fortified city by a Christian army. The enlarged figures at the top of the walls are probably protective saints, while the figures held against the bottom of the walls are probably executed enemies. 
Carved out of dark wood.
Made in the fifth century at El Ashmunein in Byzantine Egypt. In the tradition of Roman battle reliefs. Currently held at the Bode Museum in Berlin.
