Hello there I'm Gabrielle. This isn't a blog dedicated to one specific fandom or muse. This is my mind, my heart, my dreams. I adore coffee, rain and haunting music. A hopeless romantic with high expectations for life. I have one true desire and that is to fulfill my never ending yearn to travel this beautiful world.

My problem was that no one ever needed me as much as I needed them.

Gold foils of Pyrgi, VI century BC. National Etruscan Museum of “Villa Giulia”, Rome, Italy. 

These foils are a valuable testimony of the alliance between the Etruscans and Carthaginians in the era of expansion of Carthage in the Mediterranean. 

Two foils are written in the Etruscan language, one in the language of the Phoenicians: there is a dedication of a place sacred to the goddess “Astarte”, a goddess of the religion of the Phoenicians.

Pyrgi is the Latin name of the city founded by the Etruscans near the “Mountains of Tolfa”, in the region of “Lazio” , Italy.

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast (via larmoyante)

(via all-but-a-fleeting-memory)

We would be together and have our books and at night be warm in bed together with the windows open and the stars bright.

The Bhaja Caves of Maharashtra, India.

Bhaja contains about 29 rock-cut caves, which date back to the 2nd century BCE, and is described by the Archaeological Survey of India to be “one of the important Buddhist centres of Hinayana faith in Maharashtra.” 

A prominent features of Bhaja is Cave 12, a chaitya-griha, pictured in the final photo, which is considered one of the earliest of its kind. The stupa at the back of the large apsidal hall was used for worship. Cave 20 contains a group of stupas, which were built in memory of deceased monks, and probably once contained their relics.

Cave 18 was a monastery, and its verandah contains two famous sculpted reliefs. One of these (pictured in the 2nd photo) is located to the left of the door. This artwork depicts a person riding an elephant (thought by some to be Indra) who carries an ankusa (elephant goad), with attendants aside the figure, carrying a banner. The second relief shows a royal personage aside two women. The royal figure (who some identify as Sun god Surya), rides a chariot driven by four horses, and appears to be trampling a demon-like figure.

Photos courtesy of & taken by Himanshu Sarpotdar. The write-up of the site done by the Archaeological Survey of India was of great reference to me when writing this post.
