OK, it's not a real poll. That was just a cheap ploy to get your attention.
I have been admiring Yeshe's most recent avatar (if you've followed him for a while you will know he has a stunning array of images). I rather like this striking one:
I am thinking it's an American Indian, Lakota look.
Who is in this photo? What does it represent?
Ah, an image of a great 19th Century Welshman - Dr. William Price of Llantrissant:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Pr ... ysician%29
Chartist and Druid, perhaps also well known for establishing cremation as legal; he fathered a son at a very advanced age whom he christened Iesu Grist (Jesus Christ). When the child died he attempted cremation, was arrested, but then won the court case and established that cremation was legal.
One of many colourful Welsh characters. The Welsh are wonderful in providing Britain with entertaining schoolteachers, poets, actors and rugby players.
I once shared a flat with a similarly eccentric person whose family lineage dated back to King Athelstan. They were seeking to establish their right to ownership of Long Island, for which they had never received any payment or compensation from the USA.
I also saw the other facet of famous Welsh bard Dylan Thomas, having visited his boathouse before it was tidied up for the tourists. Far from drunken raving, his writing was shown to be painstakingly careful, with draft after draft of single lines of poetry.
I once used a pic of myself as a forum avatar, wearing Arab head-dress, and members shrieked with horror that Yasser Arafat was being pictured on a Buddhist forum. Maybe when you combine Welsh, Irish, English and Austrian ancestry you end up looking like an Arab! LOL
