Shaanxi Provincial Museum

We learned that when a lion has a ball under his paw a man lives in the house and a cub under the paw means a woman.  A ball/pearl in the mouth of a lion/dragon means power.

These are some of the faces of the Terracotta Warriors.  I wonder if they were self portraits. 
I guess I shouldn't complain too loudly about the current accommodations.  At least it's an improvement. :)
When I was looking at my Dad's coin collection when I visited him last, he had coins similar to these.
Such a relief to come across one of these during the day. ;)
