Some tips:

1. It’s best to use 2-pane view when working with images, and expand the left pane if the right pane is covering part of the image or the Image Commenting Toolbar (which is light blue and above the image).

2. Depending on your screensize, you may have to enlarge your screen to the right and/or drag the double blue line between panes to the right to see more of the left pane.

3. Mobile users cannot yet draw new areas (see documentation).

(Jul 26 2016 8:58PM) : The Parthenon, dedicated by the Athenians to Athena Parthenos, the patron of their city, is the most magnificent creation of Athenian democracy at the height of its power. more

…Built between 447 and 438 BC, as part of the greater Periklean building project, this so-called Periklean Parthenon (Parthenon III) replaced an earlier marble temple (Parthenon II), begun after the victory at the battle of Marathon at approximately 490 BC and destroyed by the Persians in 480 BC. This temple had replaced the very first Parthenon (Parthenon I) of c. 570 BC. The Periklean Parthenon was designed by architects Iktinos and Kallikrates, while the sculptor Pheidias supervised the entire building program and conceived the temple’s sculptural decoration and chryselephantine statue of Athena.

The Parthenon is a double peripteral Doric temple with several unique and innovative architectural features… http://odysseus.culture.gr/h/2/eh251.jsp?obj_id=912

(Jul 26 2016 9:03PM) : This area encompasses both states together, and there are two separate areas drawn for each state; this lets you organize conversations depending on whether they're about just one state or both. more

The area’s history begins with several indigenous groups, including the Powhatan. In 1607 the London Company established the Colony of Virginia as the first permanent New World English colony. Slave labor and the land acquired from displaced Native American tribes each played a significant role in the colony’s early politics and plantation economy. Virginia was one of the 13 Colonies in the American Revolution and joined the Confederacy in the American Civil War, during which Richmond was made the Confederate capital and Virginia’s northwestern counties seceded to form the state of West Virginia. Although the Commonwealth was under one-party rule for nearly a century following Reconstruction, both major national parties are competitive in modern Virginia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia

(Jul 26 2016 9:06PM) : Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic and Southern regions of the United States. more

Virginia is nicknamed the “Old Dominion” due to its status as the first colonial possession established in mainland British America, and “Mother of Presidents” because eight U.S. presidents were born there, more than any other state. The geography and climate of the Commonwealth are shaped by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay, which provide habitat for much of its flora and fauna.

The capital of the Commonwealth is Richmond; Virginia Beach is the most populous city, and Fairfax County is the most populous political subdivision. The Commonwealth’s estimated population as of 2014 is over 8.3 million… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia

(Jul 26 2016 9:11PM) : The Mona Lisa...has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world". more

The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a white Lombardy poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506. Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris since 1797. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mona_Lisa

Bruegel’s breathtaking panoramic painting shows a scene set in harshest winter. The weary hunters of the title are returning home at the end of a disappointing hunt (the rewards of their labours, as we see, are meagre, and even the dogs look a little sorry for themselves, though the expansive view they and we are looking down on is spectacular and uplifting). The scene is described with striking spareness, the poet picking out details that make up the composition as a whole, making us aware of "Bruegel the painter" bringing these elements carefully and strikingly together.
