1. How Ochakov became Odessa, and Oreshek became St. Petersburg
2. Kiev antique
3. Sevastopol antique
4. Ancient Japan
5. Antique Australia
But all this, most likely, is of a scattered nature, does not add up into a single whole, so in this article I will collect the most interesting evidence, which will be more like a richly illustrated kaleidoscope.
Finally, I decided to write this article after my trip to the Kiev Museum of the History of Ukraine (we will call it the Kiev Museum of Local Lore - KKM), where very similar exhibits are exhibited in different rooms, there are even identical items (in particular, this concerns the "walnut" period on the territory Black Sea region, the Scythian period and the period of Kievan Rus). Digressing a little from the topic, I want to say that I was very interested in the hammer in the hall dedicated to the Trypillian culture, like here:
The bulk of the hammers have a rough processing character, and do not have traces of work - chipping, scratches, chips, etc. But such polished "socks" of hammers with a perfectly round hole have such traces, and so I had a question - how could the ancients do this with the help of primitive tools? There are two options:
1. The ancients had machines
2. Traces of "blows" were made on purpose, and all of this has been turned on modern equipment, but why then not all roughly made hammers have traces of exploitation? (in particular, on the upper image from another museum, such traces seem to be not observed, although in Kiev I saw such with my own eyes).
These are my observations from one museum, I think that the next time you go to your local museum of local lore (and I hope this article will encourage you to do this), then you will have something to think about.
So, I'll probably start with the pyramids.
Pyramids in Russia
Let's not talk about large objects like these in the Urals
And smaller, about the pyramids with steep edges, which are so zealously invented by the artists of the 18th century, and even earlier, in Europe.
Domenichino. Landscape with flight to Egypt. Fragment.
Jan van Scorell. Madonna and Child. 1530-1531.
Robert Hubert. Untitled.
There is a version that the pyramids were added later, and that the landscape is very harmonious without them, and why this was done is not clear. (but in Hubert's painting, I do not know how one can "draw" such a pyramid). More details HERE
We see the same pyramids in Sudan:
Pyramid at Tikal, Guatemala, South America
Well, let's go now. Peter:
Arkhangelsk (Dutch engraving of 1765)
By the way, here is a link to the Crimean pyramids, heavily buried, of which there are already about 37:
And here is the pyramid in the city of Siberia (there was such a city!) From the Kungur Chronicle of Remezov:
That is, it turns out that the large pyramids may have simultaneously been both sources of energy for the whole region and prevented possible seismic shifts, since they were built on the sites of faults in the earth's crust (the Crimean pyramids perfectly demonstrate this), but such smaller pyramids with steep edges were located directly within the city and, accordingly, gave food only to him. Due to the small size and steepness of the edges, a higher frequency setting was possibly created, which gave more power.
Further according to plan
Antique idols in Russia
If we carefully study "The Chronicle of Ivan the Terrible", first published by Herman Sterligov (you can download or browse HERE), we will find many interesting nude statues, which were called "idols" or "golden body".On all these fragments of the "Chronicle of Ivan the Terrible", as well as from the icons, "Radziwill Chronicle", "Nikon Chronicle" and others, it is clearly seen that during the prayer to these "idols" there are no priests anywhere nearby, and there are no crosses either. even more so with the crucifixion. If they are, mainly on the icons, then this is a crude fake, painted on with another paint that glitters, while the paint on the icons is matte (this is, by the way, about the "painted" pyramids above, the paint is identical to the paint of the surrounding buildings, and it is also indistinguishable in shades from other details of the picture, located next to it. If it were a drawing, then the "pyramid" would look lighter than the rest of the picture).
For the quickest understanding, I offer the news:
So, to your attention my collection of "idols" on columns, completely naked, to which they prayed in Russia:
Does it remind you of anything? And I really …
How can you not remember the famous Golden Woman
In particular, in the book I cited earlier, "History," it is written about the destruction of the city of Troy … "the place of worship of the Gods is called … A POOL! The temple of Athena, the temple of Aphrodite, etc.
And here is the testimony of Petrusha the first about the "pagan" roots of the "Christian" churches:
We conclude that before nudity was not something shameful, but it was considered something natural, and the level of development of the ancients was so high that no "base desires" possessed them at the sight of a naked body, this is a kind of hymn to Nature and Man as it was created by Nature, according to the gods, there was no need for clothing either. You can write and write on this topic (Dmitry Mylnikov does it very well), but I will not dwell on this much, since there is still a lot of material ahead. I will devote a separate article to this, or Dmitry will do it for me =)
Then we have -
We all probably have an image of military armor in Russia, familiar to us from childhood. Numerous exhibits in museums show us what Russian soldiers looked like, and they looked something like this. Novgorod warrior during the Battle of Kulikovo:
Or like this
How to fight in such a skirt that impedes movement is not completely clear to me, perhaps everything was different before.
Needless to say, there is not a scratch on this armor?
I was very interested in the vestments of the soldiers, which is depicted on the famous fragment of the Yaroslavl icon, depicting the Battle of Kulikovo (the one that has repeatedly appeared in studies on the new chronology of Fomenko and Nosovsky).
Everything is so familiar … Maybe like this?
It’s somehow strange, don’t it? Let us now turn to the monuments that are in full view of everyone. The rule is iron and works like a clock - if you want to hide something, put it in the most conspicuous place. I have already written about the bas-relief on the Alexander Column and the coincidence in detail with the bas-relief of Trajan's Column. So, gentlemen, skeptics, here are a small part of such "coincidences". In the pairs presented, on the left - an element of the bas-relief of the Alexander Column in St. Petersburg, on the right - fragments of drawings by Giovanni Batista Piranesi, in which the artist depicted in large detail all the small details of the bas-relief of Trajan's column in Rome, drawing them:
Even the patterns on armor, shields and helmets are identical. Perhaps Montferrand stupidly copied from Trajan's column, and transferred it to his brainchild? Indeed, there is a mention of Trajan's column (but of course, these are almost identical columns), but there is no mention of the DETAILS of the bas-relief. For this "identity" it was necessary:
a) To drive Montferrand to Rome, it is stupid to sketch everything and draw up as a sketch for the Alexander Column.
b) To use ready-made drawings of the same Piranesi or other artists, but in Montferrand's diaries there is not a word about these "little things". There is only this:
"Trajan's column appeared before me as a prototype of the most beautiful that a man of this kind can create. I had to try to get as close as possible to this majestic example of antiquity, as was done in Rome for the column of Antoninus, in Paris for the column of Napoleon"
As close as possible is how much?
It was in the process of agreeing that it was decided to make a strongly protruding roughly made wreath, and to execute a two-headed eagle, which is very different in quality from the entire bas-relief?
What, have you entrusted the apprentice? Is it a monument of such importance? Dismiss! In a word, I consider the Alexander Column, as well as Trajan's Column, a wonderful illustration of military ammunition from the times of "antiquity", and it is very significant that it depicts four types of armor - "Greek", "Roman", "Scythian" and "Old Russian", which differ significantly in the quality of performance from what is shown in museums today. As a version - four cardinal points - four types of armor? But everything belongs to one wing.
Another example is the monument to Minin and Pozharsky in Moscow. How did they look there?
And how do they look on the monument? Pozharsky in general as an ancient philosopher.
On the left is a drawing by Piranesi, depicting an "antique" sword.
"Old Russian" fragment of Trajan's column, sketched by Piranesi. The pattern on the sword is interesting here.
In my opinion, the "antique miraculous savior", as I called it, is very indicative. I have never met such a face of Christ, just like Zeus. Yes, and the fashion to place the image of the face in the center of the shield is observed precisely among the "Greeks" with the "Romans".
I have already mentioned that in "antiquity" the men were harsh and rode without saddles, placing only a piece of cloth or lining under the butt. The bas-relief on the pedestal of the monument to Minin and Pozharsky, which, by the way, is made according to all the canons of the "antique" foundation:
Here is the pedestal of Trajan's column
Again, these shields with a lion in the middle are the "Roman" variant.
And the helmet is "Roman" too! And the icon of the Mother of God with the baby (I admit that this is a late alteration, although it does not look like it). And the faces!
Compare with the faces all from the same column of Trajan
Well, our guys! In the most conspicuous place …
And now I will reveal the great secret why some do not have a beard. Previously, in Russia, a 16-year-old guy was considered a man, he could already ride a horse and go into battle, being considered a FULL-fledged WARRIOR, and not sit and stick into a tablet or computer, playing tanks (this is hello to my beloved brother). Have you seen many bearded 16-year-olds? On all the bas-reliefs, YOUNG FEATURES are clearly visible. That's the whole answer. If from childhood you will be trained to become a warrior, then in your younger years you will not look your age, but mature, strong and muscular. Now it remains to find out why some "Roman" emperors were beardless (Octavian Augustus, by the way, also looks very young).
Everything is in a conspicuous place, the question is whether we notice it or not. The trick is the same - scatter parts of the mechanism in different corners so that it is impossible to see the similarity and assemble, and in the museums that will be discussed later, this has the scale of different rooms, and in the case of monuments, more pieces of the puzzle are scattered across planet Earth.
Go ahead and see
Jewelry, household items and more.
Well, here you can just be stunned. Have you all heard of the Roman dodecahedrons?
And here are earrings from the times of Kievan Rus from KKM:
Gold jewelry of South East Asia (Thailand)
Witsen draws something similar in "Northern and Eastern Tartary" (what is the general name of this figure?)
Further, there are such bracelets in almost any room.
Rus (we have already seen some of the exhibits above)
"Ancient Roman" bracelets:
Are you starting to see? Tell me, are you overwhelmed with feelings? Here is the same with me. If you have read the article up to this point, and you have never escaped an exclamation of surprise, like "Abaldet", then you are an inveterate skeptic at heart =)
Yes, yes, comrades, this is a Scythian bracelet! The more I delve into the topic of the Scythians and the Greeks, the more I understand that the line between these two concepts is so thin that in some places it has completely disappeared.
Have you ever been embarrassed that the Scythians, being nomads, had such a high gold casting industry? All the Greeks did this to them to order from the Scythian nobility, the "knowledgeable" people will say. And who knows what nomads, who do not really have a state, where they will stay - there is their homeland? Philistines, Trojans, "Greeks" (not Hellenes), "Romans", Phrygians, Hittites, Scythians, Sarmatians, Trypillians - these are all different names of one people who once inhabited the whole world.
Still want? Please =)
These are the exhibits that should be in your local museum of local lore:
Eastern Transcaucasia, 1000 BC
But this pendant is exhibited in the KKM in the hall dedicated to Kievan Rus, that is, 2000 years older. The conclusions are up to you.
And this is from the Kharkov Museum.
There should also be such brooches
"Ancient Roman" lamps
Lamp in the "ancient Greek" hall with a Kolovrat
Lamps of Kievan Rus
And here is the ancient Roman solar pendant sign
I think it doesn't need any comments.
And in conclusion I would like to cite illustrations by Nicholas Witsen from the book "Northern and Eastern Tartary". It was first published in 1692, followed by a revised 1705 edition. For clarity, I will roughly indicate the northern and eastern parts of Tartary on a map in 1692, when the book was published.
And these are the interesting things Witsen draws for us.
A familiar goddess, isn't she? They even say that her name is Athena. And next to it is an interesting statuette, reminiscent of the pharaoh's sarfagus HERE ANKH AMONA with strange hieroglyphs.
Piranesi draws the same for us, pay attention to the female heads in the previous figure and on this one:
And here is a very familiar deer. These are already the Scythians.
I did not know that the Scythians wandered so far …
Well, the last and the most awesome - "ancient Roman" coins on the territory of Northern Tartary,
But why did it all remain unsigned? Why Latin on coins? Yes, because there were several options for different people or tribes, so on the coins you can find Latin / Arabic, Old Russian / Arabic, and there are even examples of Old Russian / Latin. But surely the ancient masters did not want to immortalize themselves in the memory of their descendants? This is already a matter of perception of the world, it seems to me that all this was done for the common good, or mass production was established. Now we are accustomed to the cult of the individual, accustomed to the fact that any action in society must necessarily bear the name of the individual who did this action. All Antiquity is mostly unsigned, or signed after the Hellenes with "Greek" or Latin, for a more convenient understanding by the tribes who were allowed to live and work in the cities, not suspecting that they are warming the snake. Previously, we did not think in words, but thought in images, this is the main difference. And all the technical devices were also signed schematically. Do you see what I'm getting at?
Notice the three-bar fractal antenna icons we looked at recently:
Here are the things. He showed everything he could. Write in the comments the "antiquities" known to you in Russia, I will be unspeakably happy.
All health and sober mind)
