a visit with the terracotta daughters…

Rainy day today in New York, the perfect opportunity to take in the new exhibit at the China Institute in Lower Manhattan.  Artist Prune Nourry’s 108 girls, in the style of the Terracotta Army unearthed in China back in 1974, are now on display.   An in depth description of her project is in the photo below.

All I know is I hope I am still around in 2030 when they are unearthed… I also hope that China realizes before it is too late that they are creating their own ending, and unfortunately an ending that if it follows the course of past history will bring down a large part of the world with them.
