The Technological Arts: Ancient Seafaring Featured by Smithsonian and Singapore

Smithsonian and Singapore Organize World Tour of Shipwreck Treasure | Art Knowledge News

Written by Sylvester Hanson Sunday, 26 September 2010 05:07

WASHINGTON, DC.- The Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the Singapore Tourism Board and the National Heritage Board of Singapore today announced a partnership to organize the first exhibition and international tour of one of the oldest and most important marine archaeological finds of the late 20th century. The exhibition will focus on the 1998 discovery of a ninth-century shipwreck and its astonishing cargo of about 60,000 objects from Tang dynasty China, ranging from mass-produced ceramics to rare and extraordinary items of finely worked gold. The cargo had laid undisturbed on the ocean floor for more than 1,100 years until sea-cucumber divers discovered it off the coast of Indonesia's Belitung Island. The ship, an Arab dhow, and its contents confirm the existence of a direct maritime trade route (alluded to in ancient Chinese and Arabic texts) from China to the Persian Gulf and beyond-well before the Portuguese set sail in the 15th century.

Fresh Furry Start to the New Decade

Fresh Furry Start to the New Decade:
"This week Dave and I were talking about how ready we were for the first decade of this century to be over. I don’t know about you, but we don’t think it was quite the greatest we’ve ever experienced.

With a trace of hurt in their eyes, both daughters were quick to say they thought the zeros were great. As parents we had forgotten to note that the oughts (aughts?) were the first entire decade of their existence. I was quickly convinced that the OOs really rocked."

2010: The Future Of Fashion Blogging | Independent Fashion Bloggers:
"fashion bloggers have a unique situation that other bloggers will never truly understand. We have to be full out techies like the “tech bloggers” and we have to stay up to date on the latest trends and news in the fashion industry like the “fashion writers”. We are passionate about the two fastest changing industries in the world…fashion and technology; which is exactly why we have to stay one step ahead of the competition to make sure our blogs survive the future. So what are the 2010 fashion blogging trends to look forward to?"
