en:Olmec figurine[edit]

(Net support = 2; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

This article on Olmec figurine describes a number of archetypical figurines produced by the Formative Period inhabitants of Mesoamerica. These figurines bear the hallmarks and motifs of Olmec culture. The figurines are simple in design, often nude or with a minimum of clothing, and made of local terracotta. A unique marker of Olmec culture is the "baby-face" figurine, easily recognized by the chubby body, the baby-like jowly face, downturned mouth, and the puffy slit-like eyes.

A mooring refers to any permanent structure to which a vessel may be secured. Examples include quays, wharfs, jetties, piers, anchor buoys, and mooring buoys.

  1. As part of Writing week/Italy. Even if it is not approved soon, I think it is a useful article to be translated. It shows how the area of Amatrice was at the center of strong earthquakes also in the past. It has a very nice image (work of Italian wikisource) and it is well sourced. I ask around if someone can help to translate in English before the final selection. --Alexmar983 (talk) 07:36, 17 September 2016 (UTC) BTW if you use a translator to English the quality of the text is quite good.

en:Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord[edit]

(Net support = 1; Against = 0%) (Group 5)

Landschaftspark is a public park located in Duisburg-Meiderich, Germany. It was designed in 1991 by Latz + Partner (Peter Latz), with the intention that it work to heal and understand the industrial past, rather than trying to reject it. The park closely associates itself with the past use of the site: a coal and steel production plant (abandoned in 1985, leaving the area significantly polluted) and the agricultural land it had been prior to the mid 19th century.
