One of the strangest dinning customs is that of breaking one's glass after drinking from it. While the practice is given many reasons, not many people are aware of the rituals antiquity.

The Indus Valley Civilization used to smash their goblets too, probably in a drunken stupor. :rolleyes:

BRING MORE MEAT! BOIL THAT MAN! I"VE RUINED MY GOOD SHIRT!:)



A later wine goblet from the malwa region 1300bc.


Just a silly thread to wonder about our Ancestors lives through their objects.

Someone got sick of making round vessels.

I Don't want to hear about your stupid day!

Here you go son, a toy car, with a life like version of your mother.


Unicorns. Taste like gnomes.



Perfume bottles, mostly sold to the elves.



Dice or a poor attempt at making swiss cheese.

Where exactly are you getting this from? Or are you merely trying to be sarcastic and/or funny?

slightly off topic, but this 'cowboat' gave me such a strong sense of deja vu until I finally remembered--Kettuvall!
makes sense that the south would have preserved the design somewhat. So the artistic lines on the cowboat's aftercastle must represent a Wicker structure.


I had always assumed the design was derived from Mauryan Architecture, but this would mean that placing a Lancet Arch hood over a round arch was an extension of Indus Architecture.

hmmm.



That would mean that Egyptian boats are also referencing wicker structures?



It would explain the hatch pattern. Actually this would make sense, it even explains why Egyptian funerary boats look like Chundan Vallam.






hmmm.

So, the stylistic shift occurs around the Birds Eye.



Thats hilarious, the Vikings reversed the aerodynamic principle behind constructing it like that.
