First Emperor - China's Terracotta Army

Maria and I went to see the 2000 year old clay soldiers from China

Everything about them is amazing, you must go see the exhibit. Rent the audio, you will enjoy the informative narrative.

The second soldier is my favorite, he looks like he is dancing or performing a martial art move.

There were horses with carriages for the Emperor's use after death.


And even birds were to accompany the Emperor into eternity.

They don't let you leave without going through the gift shop, bring something home to remember your visit:

I can't wait to use my tea straining cup....with lid to keep the tea warm and dust free, I guess.

This is the coin the Emperor designed for China's univeral use, I wonder how much it is worth now?

The view from the High Museum of Art's glass walk-way....
