Cowardly destruction of UNESCO World Heritage Mausoleum by Islamist rebels

In yet another deplorable and cowardly destruction of a UNESCO World Heritage Site by Islamist rebels, the 15th Century mausoleums of Sidi, Sidi Mahmoud, Moctar and Alpha Moya have been destroyed today in Timbuktu, Mali!!


This is how this World Heritage Site looked like:-

Šibenik cathedral, Croatia

Two more pics

Some info

The structure of cathedral was built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements of the Cathedral, such as a remarkable frieze decorated with 71 sculptured faces of men, women, and children, also illustrate the successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art. One Italian master who was important in croatian renaissance art and spend most of his life in Dalmatia is Nikola Firentinac (Niccolò Fiorentino). He finished cathedral after Juraj Dalmatinac died.
