Honestly, I'm not what you'd consider an artist. I can't draw, paint, sculpt, any of that stuff, though I do have a small talent for photography. But I appreciate fine art when I see it, which is why I got an account here. And in case you were wondering about my name, Chinglu was a Hunnic sword deity.

Current Residence: riding the steppes
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Mongolian throat singing (great for annoying enemies into submission)
Favourite photographer: Alan Pedroso
Operating System: PC
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Shell of choice: Blue- Unless I'm in the lead
Wallpaper of choice: Nothing too gaudy
Skin of choice: Mine (non-removable)
Favorite cartoon character: Sterling Archer
Personal Quote: Thou art but an assclown and I shall surely smite thee in the face.
Interests
Right now I'm in Rome having the time of my life. I have seen so many beautiful things these last few days, and taken so many pictures. Expect months and months of gorgeous posts.

Colonna di Foca by SonofChinglu
Colonna di Foca
Via Wikipedia
The Column of Phocas is a Roman monumental column in the Roman Forum. Erected before the Rostr and dedicated or rededicated in honour of the Eastern Roman Empero Phoca on August 1, 608, it was the last addition made to the Forum Romanum.

The base of the column was uncovered in 1813, and the inscription on it reads

To the best, most clement and pious ruler, our lord Phocas the perpetual emperor, crowned by God, the forever august triumphator, did Smaragdus, former praepositus sacri palatii and patricius and Exarch of Italy, devoted to His Clemency for the innumerable benefactions of His Piousness and for the peace acquired for Italy and its freedom preserved, this statue of His Majesty, blinking from the splendor of gold here on this tallest column for his eternal glory erect and dedicate, on the first day of the month of August, in the eleventh indiction in the fifth year after the consulate of His Piousness.

The column and now missing statue were likely dedicated in honor of Phoca's donation of the Pantheon to the Catholic Church. Two years later he was overthrown and most statues of him destroyed.
