This is an excellent example of Gandhara art, a style unique in its blending of classical Greek and Asian culture in the wake of Alexander’s conquests, which established Greek speaking kingdoms as far east as Afghanistan.
My name is Greg. I'm an undergraduate college student studying at SUNY New Paltz, as a double major both in history and anthropology. I like running and music and I think too much. I self medicate with drugs and alcohol to deal with my depression and social anxiety problems. I love people and find them fascinating, along with what they did, where they lived, and what they built.
This blog a testament to my sheer will and determination to avoid doing any actual work in favor in basking in the vast intellectual abyss that is the internet.
I would also say this blog is basically a collection of random thoughts and pictures I find cool, interesting, aesthetically pleasing or otherwise or worthy of blog post.
I would also like to take this oppurtunity to pledge my love for the Allman Brothers Band, Modest Mouse, Pink Floyd, My Bloody Valentine, Lamb of God, and the works of MF Doom.
Oh and apologies in advance for any accidental thefts of intellectual property and/or copyright infringements that may come up... please don't sue me.
