Recently saw a great exhibit at the V&A called “The Power of Making.”   It is a great show highlighting the work behind beautiful objects, which so often goes unnoticed.  The process in itself can be the art form.

TERRACOTTA WHO? xian

TERRACOTTA WHO? xian

The terracotta warriors. This masterpiece of historical China was awe-inspiring and overwhelming…and keep in mind these were only discovered in the 1970’s when some farmers were digging for a well!  Amazing.

The terracotta figures are life-sized. They vary in height, uniform, and hairstyle in accordance with rank. Most originally held real weapons such as spears, swords, or crossbows. Originally, the figures were also painted with bright pigments, variously coloured pink, red, green, blue, black, brown, white and lilac…to be honest, I prefer them faded.
