Cultured Caturday

Mum was up early as her friends invited her to go to Te Papa, our national museum as there was a display of the Terracotta Warriors.  They were pretty amazing and it was one if those exhibits that made mum feel emotional as she turned into the main exhibition room where the warriors and two of their horses were standing.

Larger than life each warrior was so regal and strong looking - ready to protect their Emperor in the afterlife. 

Mum and her friends then went out for bundles of fresh sushi and mum went for a walk as the sun came out and it turned into a glorious summer's day.

Me - well I had to keep the quilt on the bed.

We hope you had a lovely Caturday and did something fun.


  1. How wonderful to be able to see those amazing exhibits!

  2. Oh! Wow! I must say, l always watch anything about
    these Warriors on TV..just recently, l saw a program
    where they used technology to enhance their faces and
    bodies, to show them in more defined detail! Amazing!

    HeHe! Pleased to hear the quilt is still on the bed Poppy!x
    Well done you..! :).

  3. That must have been incredible! I've seen a few documentaries about the Terracotta Warriors, can only imagine what it must be like to see that amazing exhibit!

  4. I think they are coming here to Australia
    If so I’m going to make the effort to go and see them.
    Love the pics xxx

  5. Wow, that was a good display. Glad your mum had a good day out.

  6. I'd be scared to death to be in charge of transporting those treasures.
