Download or read Mads Lange s Forgotten Treasures PDF, written by Peter Bloch and published by Mads Lange. This book was released on 2021-02-01 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mads Johansen Lange (1807-1856) was the most influential person that made Bali prosper during the mid 19th century. In order to receive favorable treatment and procure lucrative trade deals, he presented the kings of Bali with luxury goods. His philosophy was to unite and share rather than divide and conquer, so he treated all his relationships equally within the social-political system of the time. Lange strived to have peace maintained in Bali for his business to succeed and for the welfare of the inhabitants. The prosperity is evident in the luxury goods that he presented to his contacts, from valuable daggers with gold and precious gems, to elaborate temple sculptures, to fancy carved cabinets. Lange branded these gifts with his name, many with an image of his face or important scenes from his life. Portrait figures done in an unusual and animated style illustrate important events, from befriending royalty, to playful interactions with his wives, to negotiating peace treaties between the Balinese and the Dutch. Those who are closely or remotely familiar with Lange’s role in Balinese history will be fascinated by these artifacts as they increase the interest and understanding of him as a human being. These gifts remained hidden in palaces, temples, and caves across the island for nearly 200 years. This unique collection was made possible through the untiring efforts of a fellow Dane, Peter Bloch.
Download or read Hidden Treasures PDF, written by Harriet Baskas and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2013-10-01 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While there are more than 15,000 museums in our country, visitors get to see only about five percent of any institution’s collections. Most museums simply don’t have room to display everything they’ve got. However, there are a wide variety of surprising and intriguing reasons that, for example, the Smithsonian Institution doesn’t display its collection of condoms, Florida's Lightner Museum locks up all but one of its shrunken heads, and a world-class stash of Japanese erotica (shunga) art was kept in the Honolulu Museum of Art's storage until only recently. Each item or collection included in this volume is described and placed in context with stories and interviews that explore the historical, social, cultural, political, environmental, or other circumstances that led to keeping that object or group of objects out of public view--the ultimate museum buff's voyeuristic experience. Color photographs of the artifacts are included.

Download or read Hidden Treasures I PDF, written by Carolyn White and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2020-09-21 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is a lesson, a treasure, a jewel, and an opportunity for growth in everything we go through. Even in the bad things that happens to us, there are what I call "jewels" or "hidden treasures." Yes, in the most horrible experiences in life, hidden treasures! But who can find them? How do we discover them when all we can see is the hurt and pain of the trials and tribulations we have faced? By reminding ourselves that we are the apple of God's eyes and everything that was meant to harm us, God will turn it around for our good. He will give us "the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that we may know that the Lord, called us by name!" We are a marvelous work, a holy people, set apart, predestined, made in the image of, created by, loved by God. But oftentimes, that is not how we view ourselves! We have spent too many years wandering in the wilderness of shame, defeat, heartache, and pain. It is time to come out and unearth all the treasures that the enemy has stolen from you.

In a collection of short stories, commentaries, essays, and a novella, James Magner presents diverse characters, engaging plots, and enriching insights into the human condition. Within Magner’s stories, his characters search for buried gold, seek a forgotten safe, lift cash from gangsters, solve a murder, escape Nazi-occupied Vienna with hidden assets, secure loot from a Spanish shipwreck, assist an uncle who may be living on top of a goldmine, and embark on other adventures that lead to entertaining and sometimes dangerous situations. Magner’s essays explore a variety of topics including the necessary limits of science as a tool for understanding the meaning of our lives and the world, and the significant role of luck in life and poker. Finally in a novella set in Las Vegas in 2015 during a famous international poker tournament, Magner details a deceitful conspiracy scheme while also recounting his real-life experiences as he won more than a quarter of a million dollars (lifetime winnings $400,000).

Download or read Hidden Treasures of the Egyptian Museum PDF, written by Zahi Hawass and published by American Univ in Cairo Press. This book was released on 2002 with total page 124 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the greatest repository of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world, receives hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. But many of its treasures, long kept in basement storerooms or in magazines at archaeological sites around the country, or recently discovered at ongoing excavations, have never been seen by the general public. To celebrate the centenary of the Museum, many of these unknown pieces of exquisite beauty or great historical importance--and often both--have been brought out of the darkness to form a unique exhibition in a very appropriate setting: a converted section of the great basement storerooms of the Museum. With some 250 artifacts from the earliest beginnings of pharaonic culture to its latest flowerings, the exhibition spans the whole of ancient Egyptian history, and the one hundred masterpieces beautifully photographed for this volume represent the whole range of the exhibition: the Predynastic Period, the Old Kingdom, the First Intermediate Period, the Middle Kingdom, the Second Intermediate Period, the New Kingdom, the Third Intermediate Period, and the Late Period. This handsome book will serve as a prized memento for visitors to the exhibition and as a window onto it for Egyptophiles everywhere.
