    The conservation work supported by the Getty Foundation at Nagaur is significant because remarkable historic architecture has been preserved, but equally important is the fact that the project has resulted in the training of Indian conservators – ensuring that the knowledge and techniques utilized at Nagaur will carry on.

      #ThyCaptionBe: Sword Safety

      You captioned this detail. And we’re revealing the full story now.

      Haircut gone wrong or prop sword mishap? It’s actually story of backstabbing and assassination. 

      Here’s the full story:

      Once a great Roman military general, Pompey, fled Italy for Egypt as Caesar began a civil war. 

      When he arrived at his Egyptian exile, what Pompey thought was a welcoming party turned out to be a group of assassins. (Surprise!)

      Set against a blood-red background, Pompey’s severed head rests at the feet of Caesar who makes a gesture of rebuke.

      #ThyCaptionBe is a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. You guess what the heck is going on, then we myth-bust.
