"Her idea of what a hero should be—and probably no small portion of her bravery—comes from being a fan. She’s already invested in this world. There is no question in her mind that when you see something going wrong, and you have the means to help, you must help. And that comes from having these other characters in her life, if only on her computer screen and the posters on her walls. Kamala is really the next logical step in the Marvel U—she’s a superhero who grew up with superhero culture; she’s an American growing up in a changing America. I think that’s why so many different people love her. I know it’s why I do."

— G. Willow Wilson, on Kamala Khan’s status as a superhero fan-turned-superhero (via ucarim)

I told you I’ve always admired you, right? You might not remember it, but I still remember the day I first met you. To be honest, it had never occurred to me that I could lose to someone. But any frustration I felt vanished when I thought, “There’s someone more amazing than me”, “I want to swim like him”. That’s why it’s hard for me when you’re not always there ahead of me, showing me the path I should take. Without you, I have nothing to aim for, you know?

The rock-cut statues of Buddha at Bojjannakonda, Andhra Pradesh, India.

The Sankaram Buddhist complex is most often known for its two hills -Bojjannakonda and Lingalakonda. These were used by Buddhist monks from the 2nd century AD to the 9th century AD. The hills are covered with ruins of monastery structures, stupas, and rock-cut caves. Also covering the hills are are reliefs of Buddha, which span the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana periods. 

The shown hill, Bojjannakonda, has a two-storey group of rock-caves which are flanked by dwarapalakas (doorkeepers). These contain a monastery and a stupa. The individual cells where the monks mediated are still able to be seen today.

Tibetan Armored Cavalryman

This figure has been assembled based on photographs taken in the 1930s and 1940s, in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa during the Great Prayer Festival. Part of the festival included troops of ceremonial armored cavalry, who wore a standardized set of equipment as stipulated by the central government of Tibet from about the mid-seventeenth or eighteenth century onward. This included a helmet, shirt of mail, set of four mirrors, armored belt, bow case and quiver, matchlock musket, bandoleer with gunpowder and bullets, and short spear for the rider, as well as a saddle, saddle rug, and tack for the horse. Armed and equipped in a similar fashion, Tibetan goverment officials periodically were required to demonstrate proficiency on horseback with musket, bow and arrow, and spear until as late as the mid-twentieth century.
