A small part of the Xi´an Terra Cotta Worriors..

..is presently exhibited in Stockholm. So I took the ferry to the mainland and travelled to the capital to see the impressive worriors before they moved on to other places around the world. Above is a picture how they found the statues in the 70´s. They still held fragments of their former splendour and color. (Which presumably was lost when unearthed)
We brought Niki Isabella, 7 months to see them. She too, was truly fascinated.
A general in armour. I wonder what he once had been holding in his hands?
The smaller in size the lesser military ranks..
This one has a subtle smile on his face..
The horses were beautifully shaped..
This is supposed to be a woman straddling her long fallen horse. You can spot her round breasts. No side saddle business in those days!
The exhibition was situated in Skeppsholmen
(Island in the centre) close to the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.
Here we finally had a nice lunch.
Niki and Grandpa Dag are playing in the Museum bistro.
