photoblog image Chinese exhibition - 2

Chinese exhibition - 2

 

Not a very good capture, but it shows the diversity of objects.  And I kept the prints because this was the first exhibition of the finds to be held outside of China - and I've never seen another.

Amazing to think they were all buried, I'm pretty sure a good friend of mine saw them in their original site in China.

Excellent!
Really amazing, though, isn't it!

Well they certainly achieved world fame Tom
No matter how good the capture, Tom, it's just amazing that you were able to see this!

It is such a special occasion to be there and to capture what was possible and have the memory of being there, Tom.
Impressive history this is.

Are the figures fixed to those black squares Tom, or are they free standing?
Tom Wilson: I think this was for exhibition only, Chad - on the actual site, the figures would have originally been held upright presumably by the spears they were carrying, now rotted away.
It really is quite something
They must have been one of the most amazing archeological finds of all time.
