Awakening of the Terracata Warrior
Awakening of the Terracata Warrior
2006   oil on canvas   60" x 48"

In 1974 the grave of emperor Qin was unearthed in Xi'an, China, revealing an army of terracotta warriors standing in formation, motionless since 206 BC.
In this painting the warrior is awakening into 20th century modernism with a fresh wind blowing through this strange new world.
