This spectacular tunic is of the style of the Huari Empire, which wielded influence throughout much of what now constitutes Peru over 1,000 years ago...   among the most finely-woven textiles in the world. Six to nine miles of very fine yarn was required to make one tunic.... achieved entirely by hand. This amazing virtuosity suggests a specialized workforce of spinners and weavers, perhaps under the patronage of the state or religious by rubadella

This 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle contains exactly 1,000 different colors arranged in the form of a CMYK gamut and is guaranteed to drive you insane. The creator of the 1,000 Colors puzzle, Clemens Habicht, suggests the puzzle is actually easier than traditional image-based puzzles. When faced with a field of color, he says the placement of every piece becomes almost intuitive. by maureen

Anthropomorphic Stele 4th millennium BCE This haunting anthropomorphic stele is among the earliest known works of art from the Arabian Peninsula and dates back to some six thousand years ago. Found near Ha’il in the north, it was probably associated with religious or burial practices. The figure's distinctive belted robe and double-bladed sword may have been unique to this region. El-Maakir-Qaryat al-Kaafa, near Ha'il, Saudi Arabia Sandstone H x W: 92 x 21 cm National Museum, Riyadh, 997 by kathrine

Pollo a La Brasa (Peruvian Grilled Chicken) by Northwest Gal, food.com: This is a regional dish from Peru and many versions of this recipe abound, though soy sauce is the common ingredient in all of them. The title suggests it's grilled, but this dish can be oven roasted, too. But please plan accordingly though, as the chicken needs to marinate for 8 to 24 hours. #Peru #Chicken #Pollo_a_la_Brasa by gena

Federal investigators uncovered more than 1,000 tax returns linked to eight addresses in North Carolina last May, with refunds worth more than $5 million. Investigators say it's part of a tax fraud scheme among suspected illegal immigrants that the Internal Revenue Service was warned about more than a decade ago but has done little to fix. by lee

Tibet--A photo depicting what appears to be a family of high social standing. Note the cushion upon which the man to the left is seated, dyed with the 'tigma' pattern (a tie dyed technique). His dress suggests a man of high standing, perhaps a government official while the jewelry of the women is also somewhat opulent. Those standing in the photo appear to be attendants to this noble family, given their dress, etc. by doreen.m
