'car2bar' collection

Whilst reading ‘Wild Swans’ by Jung Chang, I knew I had to go to China!
The overwhelming experience of the Terracotta Army of ‘Qin Shi Huang’ the First Emperor of China in Xian, inspired this collection. These terracotta warriors stood row upon row, some wearing helmets and plates of armour; others short suits, their hair in a top knot. This vast arrangement creates an atmosphere of grandeur, power and strength. Huang 3 certainly resembles the exquisite horse lead bronze Chariots, richly adorned in gold and silver. The chariot roof is umbrella shaped, said to be symbolic of the round sky.
