THREE MUSES - Oriental

The antiquities of China have always fascinated me --  the Great Wall, the ornate temples, and the wonderful terra cotta soldiers, who guarded their emporer for centuries beneath the soil of obscure farms until they were discovered in 1974 when a farmer was digging a well.   There are said to be 8,000 life-sized soldiers, 120 chariots,  520 horses, and 150 cavalry horses, many still buried in the three pits that were discovered, still standing guard since about 250 B.C.   Amazing!
