Terracotta Warriors

Today, Jerry and I rode the metro into Washington, DC.

Jerry had written on his hand, so that he would remember to bring the tickets. We were going to the new Terracotta Warrior exhibit that is being held at the National Geographic building.

After standing in line for a while, we made our way through the amazing exhibit.

The recorded ture explained how the soldierers had been found:
In China, some people were digging for a well in a field. Instead of finding water, they ended up unearthing the tomb of an ancient emperor. This tomb was filled with hundreds of terracotta soldiers, horses, and other figures.

After seeing the Terracotta Exhibit, we visited some of the other museums in the area.

Looking at all these things is very inspiring. I can't wait to get back to my studio and start working on art.
