Terracotta Warriors in NYC
We've had discussions on this board revolving around how we'd like our funerals to be arranged, or what sort of memorial tombstone or whatever we'd like for ourselves.
But get a load of this guy – China's first emperor. When he died, he had an entire retinue of thousands constructed to accompany him into the Afterlife.
I imagine everyone has heard of China's ancient Terracotta Warriors.
For a limited time in NYC, some of the Terracotta Warriors (and other ancient Chinese funerary artifacts) will be on exhibit at Discovery Times Square.
The exhibit will continue through August 26th. I went today to check it out, and took some piccies. Here are a few for y'all:Terracotta WarriorLife-size Terracotta HorseAncient Chinese DildoesExhibit Description of Dildoes
