The Terracota Warriors

DSC_6923

I finally managed to organize a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, where the Terracota Warriors exhibit was on display. Artifacts from the Terracota Army site in Xi'An, as well as a few statues were exhibited for the first time. A magnificent example of the grandeur of old Chinese kingdoms, and although the exhibit perhaps doesn't quite capture the majesty of the actual army, the level of detail and craftsmanship is simply spectacular.

Unfortunately, cameras weren't allowed inside. I'll save the photos for when I go to Xi'An.
