'Dignified General' Keeps a Watchful Eye

By DicksPics
A series of images taken on a very rainy day at Buscot Park, a National Trust property at Faringdon in Oxfordshire.

They show a display of Terracotta Warriors in one of the areas of the wonderfully kept gardens.

A place to be recommended - we will return, on a sunny day, to explore the full extent of this beautiful location .............. and find the 'stairway' that these warriors are guarding!!

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Swanage Bay and Old Harry Rock' upload and, especially, to Jeff, Billy and Diane for their much appreciated User Awards.SmileSmile

My time for EPZ is very limited at present and I will only be uploading once or twice a week for a while; my apologies for not viewing, voting and commenting on your uploads as often as I would like.

I hope your weekend is going well.

All the best,

Great to see these guys, I saw the real ones in China back in 1988 when on holiday. I have a replica which stands about 10 inches high. When the warriors were made they were painted in many colours and would have looked fabulous. At the above ground museum, they have some that still show traces of paint. There were other things also buried with the warriors, a golden coach and horses.

So interesting for me now that I've seen the exhibition in Liverpool to the few I've seen.
The colour seems a little pale compared with those I've seen but the detail looks faithful to the originals.
