Lightbulb Canopy


Chupah closeup" by me - Own work...

Quote:
A chuppah (Hebrew: חוּפָּה‎, pl. חוּפּוֹת, chuppot, literally, "canopy" or "covering"), also huppah, chipe, chupah, or chuppa, is a canopy under which a Jewish couple stand during their Jewish wedding ceremony.. It consists of a cloth or sheet, sometimes a tallit, stretched or supported over 4 poles, or sometimes manually held up by attendants to the ceremony.. It was the custom when a boy was born to plant a cedar tree and when a girl was born to plant a pine tree, and when they married, the tree was cut down and a canopy made of the branches"..In Ashkenazi communities, before going under the chuppah the groom covers the bride's face with a veil, known as the badeken (in Yiddish) or hinuma (in Hebrew)..A baldachin, or baldaquin (from Italian: baldacchino), is a canopy of state over an altar or throne.."Baldachin" was originally a luxurious type of cloth from Baghdad, from which name the word is derived, in English as "baudekin" and other spellings.. Matthew Paris records that Henry III of England wore a robe "de preciosissimo baldekino" at a ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 1247..The word for the cloth became the word for the ceremonial canopies made from the cloth..A 4-poster bed is a bed with 4 vertical columns, one in each corner, that support a tester, or upper (usually rectangular) panel...

The jewelled parasol or Sacred Umbrella, which is similar in ritual function to the baldachin or canopy.. It represents the protection of beings from harmful forces, illness; represents the canopy or firmament of the sky and therefore the expansiveness and unfolding of space and the element æther; represents the expansiveness, unfolding and protective quality of the sahasrara; under the auspice of the precious parasol all take refuge in the Dharma..The chhatra shares a similar symbolic value to the baldachin, refer image of Vishvakarman..Viśwákarma ("all-accomplishing, maker of all," "all doer"; ) is the personified Omnipotence and the abstract form of the creator God according to the Rigveda..He is the presiding deity of all craftsmen and architects..There is the 64 vajra ground, 64 vajra fence, tent and canopy..On top of the vajra fence is a Vajra canopy which serves as a ceiling..above this is the cone shaped vajra tent...

The people of the ROTHbury area coped superbly with a difficult and dangerous situation and everyone is relieved that it is over..The first objective now is to get back to normal and welcome visitors and tourists back to this beautiful area..The BBC's Jon Sopel, who is in Rothbury, said: "There is a sense of relief here that people can go on with their lives in safety.."But there is still a police cordon in place and forensic teams are still trying to work out where exactly Raoul Moat was hiding..Former police firearms adviser, Andy Redhead said: "All the officers involved in this operation are relieved that it's over..The focus of the manhunt moved to RothBURY when a black Lexus car,which Moat was thought to have been using, was discovered in the town on Tuesday..Police imposed a 10-mile (16km) exclusion zone around the town and armed officers from forces across the country were brought in to assist in the search..Lexus (レクサス Rekusasu) is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation..From the start of production, Lexus vehicles have been produced in Japan, with manufacturing centered in the Chūbu and Kyūshū regions, and in particular at Toyota's Tahara, Aichi, Chūbu and Miyata, Fukuoka, Kyūshū plants...

Sophie Louise Hook (27 May 1988 — 30 July 1995) was a 7-year-old British child who was murdered in Llandudno, Wales in the early hours of 30 July 95... She was from Great Budworth, near Northwich, Cheshire, but was staying at the Llandudno home of her uncle..She had been abducted from a tent by local man Howard Hughes while she camped out in a relative's garden..He also had behavioural problems, learning disabilities and dyslexia..Chamberlain, reported that she had been taken from their tent by a dingo.. It is also important to note at this point that anything can be evidence - from the largest item to the smallest thing such as a cigarette end or piece of tissue..The police may also erect tents or tarpaulins to minimise the view of a crime scene to both press and public and also so that a police doctor or pathologist can carry out a cursory examination of a corpse before it is moved for autopsy...

Forensic astronomy uses methods from astronomy to determine past celestial constellations for forensic purposes..The Old Testament story of the shibboleth, in which the victorious Gileadites identified (and killed) the vanquished Ephraimites because they could not properly pronounce the word "shibboleth", foreshadows modern voice identification techniques..In ancient India around 500 BC, priests tested suspected thieves by putting them into dark tents with donkeys whose tails were coated in soot..The Hebrew story of Susanna depicts the use of interrogation of 2 separate witnesses, resulting in their contradicting each other and exposing the falsehood of their accusation against Susanna..Ancient physicians could not easily establish poisoning as a cause of death, because its symptoms were often similar to those of natural seizures...
