what symbols are in christ as the good shepherd from galla placidia ?

unfortunately, i can't answer the specific question, but here's a link to information on the impressive mausoleum in ravenna associated with her name. i hope it's some use to you. see the related link for "basilica di san vitale" to the bottom for the answer. (you'll need to scroll down some way). the mosaic in a lunette of the entrance wall to the mausoleum of galla placidia does not contain as much symbolism as the good shepherd apse mosaic in saint' apollinaire (549). christ is still the good shepherd in the galla placidia mosaic (425-450), but a few subtle changes lead to the future portrayals of christ as king. in the lunette, jesus no longer carries a lamb on his shoulders, he sits in the center of the composition, quite regal and isolated somewhat, gaze focused outward, with a halo and is robed in gold and purple (the colors of royalty). the flock is evenly split into groups of three on each side of christ. a carefully constructed landscape suggests all we need is here, the blue sky suggests we are still on earth with the chance to join the flock.

what do you need to leave for your australian shepherd puppy while you are at school ?

if you are leaving for the day while your at school some food and some water, not too much though puppies like to drink and eat as much as they can and can over do it, a toy but not one he can hurt himself with and if you have a little bed for him to be comfortable to lay on although not necessary. don't forget to put newspaper down incase he goes to the bathroom if no one is there to take him outside. puppies tend to sleep so i'm sure while you are gone it will sleep a lot.

why are anime guys so hot ?

anime guys are so hot because they're not real. they can do anything like fly, kill, and even perform magic. also, you never see an anime hero with some kind of deformity, unless its something cool like a metallic arm. they are portrayed as perfect unlike roman mythical beings like jupiter. they are always faster, stronger, and smarter than their enemies. (which can be hot too, but only because they appeal to our darker nature.) you follow them through their transgressions until the end, so you grow a bond with them.

because everyone knows that guys in real can't possibly match up with them xd

and so, you tend to feel an attachment to all the hot guys you see. and cute ones too xd

guys are sooo hawt in anime xd ---- yes, veyr true! ^^ mangakas or anime directors want to attrak people to watch/read the show/book so they can get money and live, since it's their business. but really, there are hot guys in real world. i've seen a guy who studies in the library and he looked exactly the same as l (from death note) and yamamoto (katekyo hitman reborn). it was amazing. yes, yes, hot sexy guys are the best!!! xddd

how do you beat a dependency on nose spray ?

many people are "addicted" to over the counter nose spray. they work by instantly shrinking the nasal blood vessels and opening the nose to breathe. this is great, but the directions say every 12 hours to use it. as you continue to use it, it becomes less effective and the temptation to use it sooner overcomes your good sense to follow instructions. i was addicted for 5 years and had to use it every hour on the hour everyday. i had bottles in the car, in my pocket, in the night stand, extras always ready and i felt like i was suffocating without it. it was miserable. doctors can prescribe steroid sprays that can help some people wean off the over the counter stuff, but these prescription medications do not work for all people. the most reliable way to stop using nose spray is to wean off one nostril at a time. here is how it works: start using the nose spray in your right nostril only. you will be able to breath through that nostril but the left non-medicated one will congest completely within a few hours and may stay that way for days or even weeks. but once the left nostril fully withdraws from the long term effects of the spray, it will stay open on its own. at that point, stop using the spray all together. your right nostril will congest at this point because it is no longer medicated, but in a few days or weeks, it will clear up and you will be nasal spray free! don't kid yourself. this will be hard. but remember, you are not really suffocating, you are just uncomfortable. you will feel lopsided for a few weeks (because you are only breathing out of one side of your nose), but once that ends (and it will end)... you will never have to panic because you went to the movies or a restaurant and forgot your nasal spray. you will feel uncomfortable just a few weeks instead of for the rest of your life.

do australian shepherds have predators ?

dingo's could go for them if they are weak but nothing else should be a problem.
