(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - the terracotta soldiers

Hello and welcome to part 2 of my series of photos from the Buddha Eden garden. Last week, on part 1, I showed you just some general views of the estate. Today I'm posting one of it's most well know features: the terracotta soldiers.

They are reproductions of the terracotta statues that were buried over two thousand years ago (see here for details on the original terracotta army). I have no idea why they have all been painted blue, though (I googled but couldn't find an answer).

Well, all except for this fellow:

Still, they are an impressive sight.

We really enjoyed strolling around, and we will return soon for sure, to take advantage of the good weather.

Happy Wednesday,

  1. How interesting to represent soldiers in that color, that medium.
