Cult Image
In the practice of religion , a CULT IMAGE is a human-made object that is venerated or worshipped for the deity , spirit or daemon that it embodies or represents. Cultus, the outward religious formulas of "cult " (meaning religious practice, as opposed to the pejorative term for a potentially dangerous "new religion "), often centers upon the treatment of cult images, which may be dressed, fed or paraded, etc. Religious images cover a wider range of all types of images made with a religious purpose, subject, or connection. In many contexts "cult image" specifically means the most important image in a temple, kept in an inner space, as opposed to what may be many other images decorating the temple. The term IDOL is often synonymous with cult image, but may be used especially of a cult image believed not just to depict or represent a deity or spirit, but in some sense to be one itself

Coffin
A COFFIN is a funerary box used for viewing or keeping a corpse , either for burial or cremation . The word took two different paths, COFIN in Old French
Old French
originally meaning basket, became COFFIN in English and became COUFFIN in modern French which nowadays means a cradle . A distinction is often made between coffin and casket: the latter is generally understood to denote a four-sided (almost always rectangular ) funerary box, while a coffin is usually six-sided. However, coffins having a one-piece side with a curve at the shoulder instead of a join are more commonly used in the United Kingdom (UK)

Tree Trunk
In botany , the TRUNK (or BOLE) is the stem and main wooden axis of a tree , which is an important feature in tree identification, and which often differs markedly from the bottom of the trunk to the top, depending on the species. The trunk is the most important part of the tree for timber production. Trunks occur both in "true" woody plants as well as non-woody plants such as palms and other monocots , though the internal physiology is different in each case. In all plants, trunks thicken over time due to formation of secondary growth (or in monocots, pseudo-secondary growth). Trunks can be vulnerable to damage, including sunburn . Trunks which are cut down in logging are generally called logs and if cut to a specific length bolts

Woodshop (film)
WOODSHOP is an independent film written and directed by Peter Coggan that was released on DVD on September 7, 2010. Produced by Colorado-based 42 Productions , the film originally premiered at the University of Colorado
University of Colorado
ATLAS Institute in Boulder, CO on February 15, 2009. While in pre-production of a project known as Coda, Pete Coggan came across technological and budgetary issues. Coggan wanted to originally film with a 35mm camera, but was advised to buy the then upcoming Red One camera. Calculating the risk in waiting for its release and experimenting with this new camera for his ambitious science fiction project, Coggan decided to temporarily shelve Coda and make use of the pre-production crew, actors and new technology he had set for it. Over the period of one of weekend, Coggan developed a script from ideas he wrote in high school woodshop class

Water Well
A WATER WELL is an excavation or structure created in the ground by digging, driving, boring, or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers . The well water is drawn by a pump , or using containers, such as buckets, that are raised mechanically or by hand. Wells were first constructed at least eight thousand years ago and historically vary in construction from a simple scoop in the sediment of a dry watercourse to the stepwells of India, the qanats of Iran, and the shadoofs and sakiehs of India. Placing a lining in the well shaft helps create stability and linings of wood or wickerwork date back at least as far as the Iron Age
Iron Age
. Wells have been traditionally sunk by hand digging as is the case in rural developing areas. These wells are inexpensive and low-tech as they use mostly manual labour and the structure can be lined with brick or stone as the excavation proceeds
