PhotoHunt#16 Chipped

Terracotta Warriors in Shanghai


I saw this imitation of terracotta warriors guarding outside a restaurant-bar in Shanghai. The statues have chips on them making them look very old.

The world-famous terracotta warriors have been imitated everywhere but to see the real ones is just way different and astounding. See the pictures of the real terracotta warriors here.

This is my entry to:Check more photohunters here

Those are great. Believe it or not there are imitation (I'm sure) warriors in a little town called Grimesland just a few miles from me. They sure do make you look twice, don't they. Great Post!

I saw some of the terracotta warriors when they came to Canberra many, many years ago. Fascinating! :)

I remember visiting the museum when I was young to view these teracotta warriors and I overheard this man telling his son there were real bodies inside them. It scared the hell outta me!! :P

Hi Marites! Thanks for your comment. The SRP of EOS 450D kit (with EF-S 18-55mm IS lens) in the malls are 42,950. But in Hidalgo in Quiapo, it is more or less 35K. You can google Hidalgo, Quiapo and know more about it. Good luck!!!
