Terracotta Warriors: Buried Treasure

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
― Lao Tzu

Buried Treasure had the farthest journey to make – Whitehorse, Yukon, which is approximately 1,478 kilometres or 918 miles away from Vancouver.  I had to wait until this remarkable Terracotta Warrior came to Vancouver for the Great Banquet and Auction.   He stood proudly beside Enlightened Warrior, the other Warrior that I could not photograph in his native surroundings.

Qin Shi Huangdi, the first Emperor of China, had an estate plan long before he took the seat of absolute power.  The burial place was the focal point – something to remember his time on earth and confirm his continuing power in the afterlife. His Terracotta Warriors guarded his buried treasure until the time was right for a distant generation to discover the glory of a past civilization.

“Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.”

    I’m glad to see this warrior from so far away. At least, you got to photograph it when it arrived. What a great collection–and you have saved it for us. Thank you.
