Hi Ronhjones. I don't quite see your point for your request for permission to use a 1878 photograph [1]. This photograph is Public Domain, having been shot in 1878, hence the {{pd-1923}} tag I've used. I've never heard of anything more needed for this kind of very old file, please enlighten me. Would a Pd-Art license be more appropriate?? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 15:47, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Portrait of Toramana[edit]

With due respect, you are perpetuating a mistake made by the auction house CNG on ONE listing of a coin of Mihirakula where they incorrectly identified it as Toramana. The legend you provide in your description of the image is also incorrect. The legend reads jayatu mihirakula. I know because I can read Brahmi letters and this is also the reading provided in all the reliable sources. Indeed, if you search for Mihirakula on the CNG website, you will find that ALL other coins of that type (which you have uploaded as Toramana) are identified as coins of Mihirakula. There is just the one coin (which you have used) where the cataloger has mistakenly identified the coin as that of Toramana.

For example, take a look at this page from the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna: http://pro.geo.univie.ac.at/projects/khm/coins/coin159?ref=coins The coin is identified as Mihirakula.

If you have access to Klaus Vondrovec: Coinage of the Iranian Huns and their Successors from Bactria to Gandhara (Vienna, 2014), look at page 378, where this type is identified as that of Mihhirakula (Goebl type 310).

Or look at coin 18 in the following paper (published Pankaj Tandon: "Notes on the Evolution of Alchon Coins," Journal of the Oriental Numismatic Society, No. 216, Summer 2013, pp. 24-34.): http://coinindia.com/Alchon.pdf

It is important to correct this as the error is being multiplied and perpetuated. Once you agree, I can provide a coin with the image of Toramana.

As an aside, you have sometimes spelled the name Toranama. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rani nurmai (talk • contribs) 00:53, 23 October 2018 (UTC) Rani nurmai (talk) 01:03, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

@Rani nurmai: Thank you for your explanation. You are being both friendly and informative, that's commendable. Can you point me again to the coin which you think should be renamed? (just give me a link, so that I can check). पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 12:12, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Wrong title and caption[edit]

@पाटलिपुत्र: You have extracted this file https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sarpol-e_Zahab_Lullibi_relief_Sulaymaniyah_Museum.jpg from this one https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Renovated_Hall_by_the_UNESCO,_The_Sulaymaniyah_Museum.jpg. Apart from the poor quality of the extracted file, you have wrongly described the file and its caption. Read this article about that relief http://etc.ancient.eu/travel/akkadian-rock-relief-belula-pass/. You have provided not only wrong but also misleading information. Please either correct or better delete that file altogether, including its inclusion in this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lullubi. Thank you. Neuroforever (talk) 10:15, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@Neuroforever: Hi Neurofever! I agree that the image is not of good quality, and I hope we can oneday find a better image of this relief! In the meantime, this image at least conveys the existence of this relief and the fact that it is displayed in the Sulaymaniyah Museum. I am not sure what you think is wrong with the caption: it is indeed the relief of the Belula Pass, and it is the one in the Sulaymaniyah Museum, and it is Lullubian isn't it? Could you kindly be more specific about what should be changed, or, better, provide me with an alternate caption? I will gladly correct any mistake. Thank you! पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 11:35, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
@Neuroforever: You're right for the image name, I've made a request to change it. Thank you! पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 15:45, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Extraction[edit]

@पाटलिपुत्र: You have extracted this image https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Naram-Sin_Rock_Relief_at_Darband-iGawr_(extracted).jpg from this one https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Naram-Sin_Rock_Relief_at_Darband-iGawr.JPG. It seems that you have cropped and a little bot rotated the image, both of which have distorted the art and the message of the sculpture. The depicted warrior is ascending on a mountainous area, just like steps. In the extracted image, he appears tilted forward and the defeated enemies/corpses are horizontal. In addition, I have not seen any new idea from extracting a new file from the original one; the original one would suffice and conveys the art of the sculpture. Please delete your extration. Thank you. Neuroforever (talk) 10:30, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@Neuroforever: Hi Neurofoever. Thank you for your comments, and above all thank you for the quality of your photographs! They are both rare and wonderful! I was under the impression that the original image was very distorted by the strong angle under which the photograph was taken, therefore I tried to correct the perspective according to what I felt was correct (and referred to some images with a lower angle [2], still with some angle though, or this one which gives a good idea of the real perspective and is very close to my correction), in order to make the image both more accurate and more understandable. Of course, if we could have an actual photograph taken frontally, that would be even better. Tell me what you think... Thank you! पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 11:27, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Woman's Head with Jewelry Preserved as Excavated.jpg and other files uploaded at same time.[edit]

Please note that a Public Domain Mark (PDM) on Flickr, is not the same as "cc-zero" and that license should not be used. A PDM signifies that the uploader believes that the image is PD, so a PD template needs to be applied. Flickr shows images that are cc-zero with a proper cc-zero logo - see User:Ronhjones/PDMreply to see symbols. Normally Flickr images with a PDM are deleted, but these are obviously free images, and just need a license change. Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:57, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

@Ronhjones: Thank you! So what should I do? At least I will try to contact the owner of the images at Flickr so that he changes the license to Public Domain Dedication (CCO). Is that OK? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 17:07, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
No, no. They are OLD - just change cc-zero to {{PD-old-100-expired}} or a PD-art, etc. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:14, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
@Ronhjones: The author Gary Todd has taken these photographs recently, so I don't see how we could use {{PD-old-100-expired}}, which would only apply to a very old photograph in my understanding ("the author's life plus 100 years or less"). The object itself is very old, but the photograph is very recent. PD-Art would only apply to a 2-dimensional work. Is there something I don't understand? पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 17:26, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
You are right and I am wrong. That's life! Can't be correct all the time. Correct - PD-art is for 2D only, back to your original idea of contacting the Flickr user. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:50, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Ciao, Pataliputra. Thank you for the image Naxos_Sphinx_with_humans_for_size.jpg. I have included it in an article about Buddhist architecture that can be read online.

Wonderful and wonderful work you have done! I will post it on my Twitter, but I have to credit you as well, as the brilliant photoshopper. How to credit you? On one hand, I'm very happy to see this image. On the other hand, believe me, people will hijack it very soon without crediting or mentioning me or you!

Correct licensing[edit]

Hi. I am aware that you retracted your edit but I still want to express my thanks to you for giving me the hint to use the PD-Art tag. I inquired with another user and he suggested to me the 'sister tag' PD-scan. Which tag is now more appropriate for old manuscript illustrations published by large public libraries like File:Hexateuch, Cotton MS Claudius B IV, f. 60r.png or File:Luttrell Psalter, Add MS 42130, f. 200r.png (I guess they are using overhead book scanners)? Best wishes Gun Powder Ma (talk) 15:12, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

@Gun Powder Ma: You're welcome. PD-Scan seems to be acceptable when you are certain the photograph is a scan, otherwise PD-Art might be safer as it covers any kind of photography of ancient 2D objects (and the template specifically mentions the PD-Art legislation as a justification, which PD-Scan doesn't). You will have zero problems if you use PD-Art for your uploads (example: {{PD-Art|1=PD-old-auto|deathyear=1st century BCE|country=India}}). Best regards पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 16:18, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
I tried it, but unfortunately it does not work wherever where the date of death cannot be specified down to the year — as is the case with most pre-modern manuscript illuminations. When using {{PD-art|PD-old-auto-expired|deathyear=14th century|country=uk}} the sign with the exclamation mark always goes up. Gun Powder Ma (talk) 20:01, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
@Gun Powder Ma: You're right, I never bothered. This one seems to work OK: {{PD-Art|PD-old-100-1923|deathyear=7th century BCE|country=Sudan}} 20:19, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

The author died in 7th century BCE, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 100 years or fewer.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1925.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.

Query?[edit]

Hi! Please I have a question, as you are more expert in this field, I'm sure? I shot this image (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:HRH_Tuanku_Abdul_Rahman_Ibni_Al-Marhum_Tuanku_Muhammad._The_Tuanku_Ja%27afar_Royal_Gallery,_Seremban.jpg) in Malaysia of a former and a late ruler. The image was there, displayed within a public gallery of the royal family. I took a pic of it and uplaoded it to Wikicommons. In the description, I was clear in saying where the "original" image was. Someone made an edit and added a copyright license (public) and removed my whole contribution. It is not a scanned image nor an image file given to me by the gallery. I shot it and edit it and then uploaded it. Is that edit by that person acceptable? Thank you. Regards. Neuroforever (talk) 21:18, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

@Neuroforever: Dear Osama! As a courtesy, the user who corrected your license should have contacted you, but his edit is nonetheless valuable. There are two levels of copyright: first, the original image (the one in the Museum) has to have a free license for you to then claim a free license on it. So it is necessary to show that the original image is public domain, both in Malaysia and in the US. I will add a tag to show that it is also free in the US. Then it is OK for you to claim your own copyright on it (CC 4.0) as the creator of the reproduction, although on Commons faithfull reproductions of public domain images are themselves considered as Public Domain (PD-Art). I'll do the corrections, and please check if this is OK for you. पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 04:56, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you so much for the valuable information! I have no idea about this subject; your answer and edit are quite helpful to me. I have seen the page; thanks for the edit. Thank you once again. Regards. Neuroforever (talk) 10:50, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Here it comes ! I've got it ! : File:Afghanistan, Standing Buddha, Ghorband Valley, Fondukistan Monastery, 7th century.jpg. You are a lucky पाटलिपुत्र. Best regards. (Ismoon (talk) 17:19, 28 October 2020 (UTC))

Amarna letters at Vorderasiatisches Museum, Berlin[edit]

Hi! I have uploaded 4 images of the so-called Amarna Letters. All of them are on display at Vorderasiatisches Museum, Berlin. I have created a category for them: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Amarna_letters_at_Vorderasiatisches_Museum,_Berlin . Their description is very brief. I could not find any information about what do they represent or their importance. Please, do you have any information about them? Thank you. Regards.

@Neuroforever: Thank you so much Osama. I'll see what I can do (but I don't much about them!). Best regards पाटलिपुत्र (talk) 11:51, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, much appreciated. One thing about this image https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:One_of_the_Amarna_letters._A_letter_from_Tushratta_king_of_Mitanni_to_the_Egyptian_Pharaoh_Amenhotep_III._Circa_1370_BCE._Akkadian_cuneiform_text._From_Tell_el-Amarna,_Egypt._Vorderasiatisches_Museum,_Berlin.jpg . The description at the Vorderasiatisches Museum says c. 1370 BCE and that would be Amenhotep III's reign. This contradicts what Wiki's article about Tushratta says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tushratta . Regards. Neuroforever (talk) 11:58, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
