Belisama

In Celtic polytheism, Belisama was a goddess worshipped in Gaul. She is identified with Minerva in the interpretatio romana; the etymology of her name has been taken to translate to "brightest one", i.e. containing a superlative suffix -isama attached to the root bel "bright". But the root bel has been interpreted differently, e.g. as bel "strong". A Gaulish inscription found at Vaison-la-Romaine in Provence shows that a nemeton was dedicated to her: СΕΓΟΜΑΡΟС/ ΟΥΙΛΛΟΝΕΟС/ ΤΟΟΥΤΙΟΥС/ ΝΑΜΑΥСΑΤΙС/ ΕΙѠΡΟΥ ΒΗΛΗ/СΑΜΙ СΟСΙΝ/ ΝΕΜΗΤΟΝ Segomaros Ouilloneos tooutious Namausatis eiōrou Bēlēsami sosin nemēton "Segomarus Uilloneos, citizen of Namausus, dedicated this sanctuary to Belesama"The identification with Minerva in Gallo-Roman religion is established in a Latin inscription from Saint-Lizier, Ariège department: Minervae / Belisamae / sacrum / Q Valerius / Montan / x vThe French toponyms Beleymas and Bellême are based on the theonym; the presence of the goddess in Britain is more difficult to establish.

Based on Ptolemy listing a "Belisama estuary", River Ribble in England seems to have been known by the name Belisama in Roman times. However, it is said to be the name of the River Mersey. Belisama: a Gaulish and Brythonic goddess

Salimullah Muslim Hall

Salimullah Muslim Hall is a residential hall at Dhaka University, named after Nawab Sir Khwaja Salimullah Bahadur. It was inaugurated on 11 August 1931. Among the residential halls of Dhaka University, Salimullah Muslim Hall holds a special status due to its heritage. On 27 May 1912, the British government formed the "Nathan Committee" on establishing a residential hall-based university; the Calcutta University Commission recommended a hall for the Muslim students in order to maintain their own culture and religion. Based on the Nathan Committee's report and the recommendation of the Calcutta University commission, the government of India prepared the Dhaka University bill; the bill was passed by the Indian Law Assembly with the viceroy and governor general Lord Reading agreeing to the bill on 23 March 1920. Student enrollment at the university began on 10 July 1921. Dhaka University began with three halls: the Muslim Hall, Jagannath Hall, Dhaka Hall; the Muslim Hall was on the first floor of the Secretariat House.

The largest room on the ground floor was divided into a dining room, common room and other rooms. In the first year of Dhaka University, the Muslim Hall housed 75 students out of a total of 178 Muslim residential and attached students. Associate Professor Ahmed Fazlur Rahman was appointed as Provost of Salimullah Muslim Hall. Two house tutors were appointed: Fakhruddin Ahmed, who supervised the students, Muhammad Shahidullah, in charge of religious instruction. During the 1922–23 session the number of residential students increased to 101. Eight additional rooms were arranged for the students. In the 1923–24 session the number of Muslim residential students rose to 127, 61 rooms were allocated in the Secretariat House. Since the number of residents was increasing house tutor M. F. Rahman wrote a letter to the vice chancellor of the university, he noted. If this is done, the Community would be grateful; the university formed a building committee. The committee appointed the architect Gwyther to design the hall.

In 1927 the Bengal government provided funds to carry out the plan. During the 1930–31 session, the contractors Messrs Martin & Co. made considerable progress with the construction of the building. In the 1931–32 session the Salimullah Muslim Hall was complete; the hall houses more than 800 students. The renovation of the Salimullah Muslim Hall has been carried out with the most recent completed in 2010; the two-storey building faces south. It has four wings that surround a rectangular courtyard bisected north and south by a covered walkway. Verandas run along the inner facades. At the centre of the south wing, the projecting entrance has three pointed arches flanked by two square towers, each crowned with a bulbous yellow-tiled dome.

Christ of Havana

The Christ of Havana is a large sculpture representing Jesus of Nazareth on a hilltop overlooking the bay in Havana, Cuba. It is the work of the Cuban sculptor Jilma Madera, who won the commission for it in 1953; the statue was carved out of white Carrara marble, the same material used for many of the monuments of the Colon Cemetery. The statue is about 20 metres high including a 3-metre base, it weighs 320 tons. The statue was built from 67 blocks of marble, brought from Italy after being blessed by Pope Pius XII; the figure of Christ is standing with the right hand held near the chin and the left hand near his chest. Facing the city, the statue was left with empty eyes to give the impression of looking at all, from anywhere to be seen; the sculpture, located in the Havana suburb of Casablanca, in the municipality of Regla, was inaugurated on La Cabaña hill on December 24, 1958. Just fifteen days after its inauguration, on January 8, 1959, Fidel Castro entered Havana during the Cuban Revolution.

The sculpture is located 51 metres above sea level, rising to a height of 79 metres, allowing the locals to see it from many points of the city. There is a panoramic viewpoint at the site of the sculpture. Locals suggest that the statue was sculpted to depict a cigar in the right hand and a mojito in the left hand, honoring popular Cuban culture.
