Thw "War Clock" counts the dead in armed conflicts around the globe. Armed warfare managed to rack up 100 million dead during the 20th century, which translates to about two dead every minute. The clock was reset to 100 million on the eve of the new millennium and has been counting deaths at that rate ever since.

Signs in the trenches of World War I showed the way to company headquarters, important points etc. Mostly the sections of trench were named after nearby villages or landmarks. Obviously someone thought that more descriptive names were called for.

A relief depicting Durga's battle with Mahishasura. Durga is essentially the wife of Shiva transformed by the gods into a goddess of destruction in order to have someone who could defeat Mahishasura. With a body forged by the most powerful gods, weapons ranging from Shiva's trident to Vishnu's discus and just a little feeling of being totally über, she made short work of the demon.

A reproduction of the multicolored decorations that greek columns originally had. This, called polychrome, had completely worn off by the time the ancient Greek temples were inspected by the Victorian English, and so they were left with the impression that classical architecture completely lacked color. Later analysis of the stone revealed the colorful patterns that had once been painted on it, and the replica of the Parthenon in Nashville reproduces what is thought to be the original colors.
