Terra Cotta Photo Challenge

Terra Cotta Heads

Terra Cotta Heads

In conjunction with its upcoming exhibition Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China’s First Emperor, National Geographic Museum is running a photo challenge to find your very best terra cotta warrior photographs. The above entry is one of our top contenders. The inter play between the light and the stone caters to our perceptions in encountering the warriors. Their rich history and academic uncertainty creates questions, a little fear and a real sense of intrigue exactly like the photo shown here.

Terra Cotta Warriors will be on view in Washington, DC from November 19, 2009 – March 31, 2010.
