The warriors seem to be marching out of the shadows into the light...of battle?


I almost lost my shadow,
I left it in the park;
I heard my mommy calling,
For it was getting dark;

She has no use for shadows,
She thinks they are quite grim,
And when she saw my shadow,
She thought it was a “him.”

I had to educate her
And tell her it was “she”—
And now my faithful shadow
Is welcome as can be!

Wonderful photo of the warriors, Linnea. So many of them, a veritable army indeed!
Brought back memories of our visit to Xian. I've been enjoying your China photos so much.

What a feat to create these armies of all different faces, sizes and uniforms. Lovely shot, I adored the horses.
