Predict Old Faithful - Teachers Grade Level: Upper Elementary: Third Grade through Fifth Grade Subject: Louvre Museum's Visitor Trails Here, Ingres transposed the antique theme of the female nude to the Near East, a place he had traveled to only in his dreams and the pretext for the sensual image of a naked woman in a harem—hence the title, The Large Odalisque—set against an exotic background. Until the end of his life, Ingres continued to paint exotic scenes and female nudes, one of his favorite subjects—as in The Turkish Bath—drawing on influences as diverse as Raphael, the Mannerists, and Persian miniatures.

Who owns Australia? (Aboriginal, pastoral, private etc.) - The Guardian Researchers who have been pushing for a more transparent land use data say knowing who owns Australia is essential not only for proper management of our national resources but to understand who we are as a country. Dr Laurence Troy, of the University of Sydney, was one of three researchers who worked on a 2012 report for the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, which developed a framework for analysing national patterns of ownership change, aggregation and fragmentation of agricultural land. “I see [ownership] as a central question in how our society operates,” Troy says.
