Terracotta Warriors: The Brilliant Warrior

The Brilliant Warrior was chosen to guard the gardens named after the legendary Dr. Sun Yat Sen, the Chinese revolutionary leader and statesman.  Dr. Sun Yat Sen, considered by many to be the “Father of Modern China,” spent much of his time in exile.  Vancouver is proud that he came for a time to our city.

The Brilliant Warrior by James Tam reminds us of those, in the past, who have had the vision and courage to bring new ideas and traditions into fruition.  The mantle has been passed on to a new generation.

“The Revolution has not yet succeeded Comrades, you must carry on!”

  3. They were selling ancient terra cotta horses in an antique shop in SF for a reasonable rate. When I asked why, they said because there are so many of them. Remarkable!
