Jennifer Aniston Buys $9 Million New York Home

The actress just put down $9 million for yet another new NYC pad. The 2,873 square foot apartment is located in an upscale building in New York’s Gramercy Park. A housekeeper and butler also come with that $9 million, a pretty good deal if you ask me.

The home is also the only unit in the building that overlooks Gramercy Park. Jen’s exclusive view is in her master bedroom. Hey, maybe she can see her other house from this house. In April, Aniston bought the 17th and 18th floors of a Manhattan apartment building for around $7 million. That seems like a steal for two floors of a building.

Classifieds for Benin, culture and Brass Oba Figure

The Benin culture retains a divine kingship government whose second dynasty originated from the Ife culture in the late 14th century, and this dynasty continues in an unbroken line of descent through the present day. The Ife were celebrated brasscasters, and their knowledge of this art form was transferred to the Benin. When the Benin ruler, or oba, accedes to the throne, he has shrines created to honor his predecessor and to honor his own mother, the Iyoba or queen mother. Many different brass sculptures are created as part of these shrines.


Brass Oba Figure

Brass Oba Figure

The three brass sculptures in the Davis Collection are made in the style of Benin shrine figures, and they likely represent royal individuals in the Benin culture. All three figures are made in traditional Benin style, with simplified, idealized, youthful adult features, outlined eyes, and a forward-facing gaze that symbolizes sight into the spirit world. The figures are also all made of resilient brass, a royal material that represents the continuity of kingship; its reddish color symbolizes royal blood, divinity, and also a threat, as it refers to the royal privilege of having the sole right to spill blood, or order capital punishment, and this right is believed to deter evil.

Free Classifieds Ads for Belize – a haven for divers

With vast areas of unspoiled rainforest, a friendly, English-speaking population and a sensible approach to protecting its natural and Mayan cultural heritage, Belize is a great destination for both adventure and family holidays.

Belize has a very interesting past. Unlike most countries in Central America, which were colonised by Spain, Belize was once a British colony. Today, the main language remains English and although the country became independent in 1981, Belize remains a part of the British Commonwealth.

Belarus is the perfect place for a vacation – Free Advertisements Ads

Belarus is the perfect place for a vacation if something about the Cold War and Soviet Era intrigues you, as this landlocked Eastern European country hasn’t changed dramatically since the fall of the Soviet Union. Belarus has two official languages, Belarusian and Russian, and much of the architecture and cities will transport you back to a different period of history. Belarus travel also includes surprises such as spectacular World Heritage sites, like Mir Castle, and it is famously known for being home to beautiful people. If you’re looking for a place to escape from Western culture that has seemed to spread so far, consider getting on the next train for Belarus.
