Scenes in Mammoth Cave, 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton Featured Print

Scenes in Mammoth Cave, 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton

Scenes in Mammoth Cave, 1874. Tourists visit limestone caverns in Kentucky, USA, the longest cave system known in the world: Shelby's Dome & Bottomless pit; Grand Crossing; Mouth of the Cave; Mammoth Dome; Napoleon's Dome; Gothic Chapel'. ...in Shelby's Dome...The height seems limitless, and the eye traces on the walls innumerable scrolls, panels, and fanciful projections of the most varied design and beauty. Under the dome is the celebrated Bottomless Pit, which has a depth of one hundred and seventy-five feet...the Mammoth Dome, which appears much over a hundred feet high, with its magnificent walls of sheer rock'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant.

Castellated Rock, 1872. Creator: John Filmer Featured Print

Castellated Rock, 1872. Creator: John Filmer

Castellated Rock, 1872. Rock formation in Northern California, USA: a range of granite and limestone rocks, which attains an elevation from the plain of three thousand feet, and is broken into a multitude of ragged forms...The granite...relieves the dazzling white of the limestone. When the sun shines upon the latter, the observer can hardly tell it from marble, so brilliant is its snowy hue. The line of these singular hills is of considerable length, extending, indeed, along the whole valley of the Pitt...their appearance is finely castellated...the shrill scream of the bald-eagle is heard from the loftiest and most inaccessible peaks, where these birds build their eyries...the glare of the noonday sun, falling upon these peaks of snowy limestone that rear themselves upward...like a huge ice-wall...is positively blinding'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]

Section of a Dharani Pillar, Tang dynasty (618-907). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Section of a Dharani Pillar, Tang dynasty (618-907). Creator: Unknown

Section of a Dharani Pillar, Tang dynasty (618-907). This octagonal stone pillar, with Buddhist figures carved on its eight sides, is part of a dharani pillar commissioned by Buddhist believers to pay tribute to the dead. The eight inscriptions seen here are eulogies dedicated by eight families to their deceased family members. Dharanis were a form of spell in Esoteric Buddhism said to possess supernatural power when being recited or carried and were incorporated into sutras, such as the Buddha Usnisa Vijaya Dharani Sutra. Dharani pillars, also called sutra pillars, became the dominant bearers of Usnisa Vijaya Dharani which supposedly helped sentient beings prolong life and destroy hardships of the eternal cycle of life and the realms of hell
