Xi’an China

Home of the Terra Cotta Army.  This one was protected and encased in glass.  I thought it would be really interesting to see the scene through his eyes.

    His expression is perfect, as if he wonders as much about us as we do about him.

    Very different perspective! Great idea. I think the look on the soldiers face is very fitting for the photo too!

    I always like photos like this where the spectators or audience are part of the scene. You sort of wonder what the old soldier might think of scene, don’t you?

      he’s probably wondering why everyone is holding a box with a flashing light; a strange weapon from his perspective for sure!

  4. Great perspective! :) We got a chance to see China Terra Cotta Army in Atlanta during their tour. It was a great experience but I’m still dreaming of visiting the real site in China.

      I had no idea they had some on tour in the US! I do hope you get to go see the real thing in Xian one day though…yet as you can see from the picture – it’s packed with tourists – kind of like Disneyworld!

  5. I love that picture – especially the reflection of his face in the glass. Xian was absolutely amazing and is a lifetime must see.

    he looks glad to have all the paparazzi’s attention, if it was me i would be probably running away, maybe that’s only because he can’t
