Emma Lu Davis

Emma Lu Davis was an American sculptor and anthropologist. She was born in Indianapolis on November 26, 1905. After graduating from Vassar College in 1927, she studied for three years at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. After leaving school, Davis spent three years as a freelancer working on a variety of commissions. In 1933 she spent six months studying modern techniques and design under Buckminster Fuller at the Dymaxion factory in Bridgeport, Connecticut. At the factory, she wrote she learned "the principles of good workmanship. I think. Use of tools and neat, strong construction are not taught much in art schools." It was there that she learned how to work with wood, began experimenting with abstract forms. Her figurative sculptures from the 1930s reflect her interest in the naive art of various folk cultures. In spring 1935 she traveled to Russia to learn how Russian artists were organized and how socialized patronage affected their work, she concluded that Soviet artists failed to innovate because "the cheap academic traditions have been continued under the name of'socialist realism'—that is, all the facts and none of the meaning of the subject."From 1938 to 1941 she was the artist in residence at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

She describes this period as "the most profitable and enjoyable three years of my life." In 1939 she was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts to paint a mural, "Missouri Livestock," for the post office in La Plata, Missouri. Two years she collaborated with Henry Kreis on a series of low-relief granite sculptures depicting the benefits of social security for the overdoor panels of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services building in Washington, D. C. After practicing as a commercial artist for thirty years, Davis decided to retrain as an archaeologist, she completed her Ph. D. at UCLA in 1965, writing her dissertation titled Anasazi Mobility and Mesa Verde Migrations. She worked Science Direction at the San Diego Museum of Man, while continuing her desert studies, focusing on the southern California region of China Lake. Prior to her retirement, she established the Great Basin Foundation, which conducted paleo-environmental research. According to Joseph L. Chartkoff, Davis was "one of the most important figures in bringing scientific rigor and credibility to Paleoindian archaeology in California."

She died in San Diego on October 19, 1988. Her artwork is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, other museums and private collectors.

Kurt would become his father’s crew chief, guiding the family’s second team to Top Five points finishes in 1991 and 1992.

Vashishtha is one of the oldest and most revered Vedic rishis. He is one of the Saptarishis of India. Vashishtha is credited as the chief author of Mandala 7 of Rigveda. Vashishtha and his family are mentioned in Rigvedic verse 10.167.4, other Rigvedic mandalas and in many Vedic texts. His ideas have been influential and he was called as the first sage of the Vedanta school of Hindu philosophy by Adi Shankara. Yoga Vashishtha, Vashishtha Samhita, as well as some versions of the Agni Purana and Vishnu Purana are attributed to him, he is the subject of many mythologies, such as him being in possession of the divine cow Kamadhenu and Nandini her child, who could grant anything to their owners. He is famous in Hindu mythologies for his legendary conflicts with sage Vishvamitra. Vashishtha is spelled as Vasiṣṭha and is Sanskrit for "most excellent, best or richest. According to Monier-Williams, it is sometimes incorrectly spelt as Vashistha. In Rigvedic hymn 7.33.9, Vashishtha is described as a scholar who moved across the Indus river to establish his school.

He was married to Arundhati, therefore he was called Arundhati Nath, meaning the husband of Arundhati. Vashishtha is believed to have lived on the banks of Ganga in modern-day Uttarakhand; this region is believed in the Indian tradition to be the abode of sage Vyasa along with Pandavas, the five brothers of Mahabharata. He is described in ancient and medieval Hindu texts as a sage with long flowing hairs that are neatly tied into a bun, coiled with a tuft to the right, a beard, a handlebar moustache and a tilak on his forehead. In Buddhist Pali canonical texts such as Digha Nikaya, Tevijja Sutta describes a discussion between the Buddha and Vedic scholars of his time; the Buddha names ten rishis, calls them "early sages" and makers of ancient verses that have been collected and chanted in his era, among those ten rishi is Vasettha. Vashishtha is the author of the seventh book of the Rigveda, one of its "family books" and among the oldest layer of hymns in the Vedic scriptures of Hinduism; the hymns composed by Vashishtha are dedicated to Agni and other gods, but according to RN Dandekar, in a book edited by Michael Witzel, these hymns are significant for four Indravarunau hymns.

These have an embedded message of transcending "all thoughts of bigotry", suggesting a realistic approach of mutual "coordination and harmony" between two rival religious ideas by abandoning disputed ideas from each and finding the complementary spiritual core in both. These hymns declare two gods and Varuna, as great. In another hymn the Rigvedic verse 8.83.9, Vashishtha teaches that the Vedic gods Indra and Varuna are complementary and important because one vanquishes the evil by the defeat of enemies in battles, while other sustains the good during peace through socio-ethical laws. The seventh mandala of the Rigveda by Vashishtha is a metaphorical treatise. Vashishtha reappears as a character in Hindu texts, through its history, that explore conciliation between conflicting or opposing ideologies. According to Ellison Findly – a professor of Religion, Vashishtha hymns in the Rigveda are among the most intriguing in many ways and influential. Vashishtha emphasizes means to be as important as ends during one's life, encouraging truthfulness, optimism, family life, sharing one's prosperity with other members of society, among other cultural values.

Vasishtha is a revered sage in the Hindu traditions, like other revered sages, numerous treatises composed in ancient and medieval era are reverentially named after him. Some treatises named after him or attributed to him include: Vashishtha samhita is a medieval era Yoga text. There is an Agama as well with the same title. Vashishtha dharmasutra, an ancient text, one of the few Dharma-related treatises which has survived into the modern era; this Dharmasūtra forms an independent text and other parts of the Kalpasūtra, Shrauta- and Grihya-sutras are missing. It contains 1,038 sutras. Yoga Vashishtha is a syncretic medieval era text that presents Yoga philosophies, it is written in the form of a dialogue between Vashishtha and prince Rama of Ramayana fame, about the nature of life, human suffering, choices as the nature of life, free will, human creative power and spiritual liberation. Yoga Vashishtha teachings are structured as stories and fables, with a philosophical foundation similar to those found in Advaita Vedanta.

The text is notable for its discussion of Yoga. According to Christopher Chapple – a professor of Indic studies specializing in Yoga and Indian religions, the Yoga Vashishtha philosophy can be summarized as, "Human effort can be used for self-betterment and that there is no such thing as an external fate imposed by the gods". Agni Purana is attributed to Vashishtha. Vishnu Purana is attributed to Vashishtha along with Rishi Pulatsya, he has contributed to many Vedic hymns and is seen as the arranger of Vedas during Dwapara Yuga. According to Agarwal, one mythical legend states that Vashishtha wanted to commit suicide by falling into river Saraswati, but the river prevented this sacrilege by splitting into hundreds of shallow channels. This story, states Agarwal, may have ancient roots, where "the early man observed the braiding process of the Satluj" and because such a legend could not have invented without the residents observing an ancient river drying up and its tributaries such as Sutlej reflowing to merge into Indus river.

Vashishtha is known for his feud with Vishwamitra. The king Vishwamitra coveted Vashistha's divine cow Nandini that could fulfil material desires. Vashishtha destroyed V
