    Sorry for all these messages, but it is the original confirmed on the wiki of Jean-Baptiste Louis Picon and on the French wiki of the author himself Jean-Baptiste van Mour

    Comment by 'Silveryou' in media 'Grand Vizier Ibrahim Pasha, his Giants and tiny Frenchmen'

    It seems many fake paintings have been spread all over the internet. I remember clearly that the first is the original one though. Here an article from 2014 which used the original The Ottoman Empire’s No 2 man

    Should be the Kubbealtı, a place in the Topkapı Palace, Istanbul - Imperial Council (Ottoman Empire)

    How old is the Aral Sea?

    It's an interesting idea. My only problem is that by the superimposition you did, the sea was upon regions way above sea level nowadays, while the southern part of the Caspian should have been submerged because way below sea level. Don't know if I am clear

    How old is the Aral Sea?

    Some settlements I identified (maybe) sometime ago on this map in that region: Sakashick = Sarayshyk (Saray-Jük) Ocerra = Akzhar (Akzhar District) Kizan/Risan = Kyzan (Kyzan) Astracan = Astrakhan (Astrakhan) Rast = Rasht (Rasht) Buccara = Bukhara (Bukhara) Goride = Gori (Gori, Georgia) Bachu...

    I think this painting confirms the other one with turkish giants parading in Paris. I think this Ibrahim Pasha should be this one though (maybe) Nevşehirli Damat Ibrahim Pasha. And the ambassador this one Jean-Baptiste Louis Picon. The gold rush begins. :D

    Comment by 'Silveryou' in media 'Giant door #13'

    It looks like the little doors were impossible to "carve" in the bronze doors. If the little ones are only in wooden doors that would be proof enough that they were "carved" later in time.

    The Staff of Saint Bernardine of Siena

    This is the other part of the Melun Diptych. Do you guys think that this tits and blood painting is an original one? I have my doubts. The wiki says: "Until 1775, the diptych remained in the church of Notre Dame in Melun. In need of funds for restoration, the cathedral chapter decided to...

    Comment by 'Silveryou' in media 'Festivities organized in Paris in the spring of 1612 on the Place des Vosges'

    This is amazing. But now I wonder what the captions say. Have you found something? Anyway on letters BB - DD - EE I see ancient Romans with their captives during a triumph parade. They also carry the Roman insignia. Near HH those seem to be Winged Hussars from Poland. T and C are obviously...

    SPQR this & SPQx that. Empires were everywhere.

    Could be, but we also have "ancient" Romans and Trojans wearing heavy clothing... who knows!

    SPQR this & SPQx that. Empires were everywhere.

    What I meant is that the clothing style you showed in the image is not really suitable for Europe. It could be maybe used in some regions on the Mediterranean Sea, but not in continental Europe. The colouring pattern on those togas could be a big hint to the real identity of the Latins, imo.

    SPQR this & SPQx that. Empires were everywhere.

    I don't know where you are going but maybe we share the same thought... My own thought is that Latins were not Romans and they were the same people who call themselves Latins in our time: Latin-Americans. An Italian researcher, Riccardo Magnani, claims that America is represented in Renaissance...

    Russian Rulers of old

    This is interesting. Michael I is labeled "Groes Schiematique", which is a reference to the Great Schism of 1054 (East–West Schism - Wikipedia). Who was the Oriental protagonist of this event? Michael I Cerularius (Michael I Cerularius - Wikipedia). Fomenko has shown that during the 17th...

    The Temple of the Sun in Nineveh

    This "steam" seems to go out from something equivalent to the Roman rostra (Naval ram - Wikipedia; Rostro (arma) - Wikipedia), which were said to be "symbolic decorations". I've never really understood this fashion of putting naval rams on columns!!! Also, speaking about enemy trophies (I...
