Like it for the above mentioned reasons. Interesting to see the rough work they did to mold this warrior.

I was going to ask how you were allowed to take pictures of a terracotta warrior, because it was forbidden when i saw them a few years ago in china. Then i read the text following another picture in the series that it was taken during an expo in dusseldorf :-)

Yes a very good portrait of the terracotta warrior. The shadows and light are really very well done.

thanks Monica, Jakob, Bram, Steen, Marian, John and Eugene

the given lightning causes the shadows and didn't gave me (fortunately) a different choice...
