The Vancouver Seven Day Express - Vancouver's Terracotta Warriors

Real Estate Agent

It seems like Vancouver can't get enough of the fiberglass street statues........During the Olympics it was Orcas, we've had eagles and bears too, and now its dozens of sculptures modelled after the 2,200-year-old terracotta warrior statues unearthed in China decades ago.

The warriors — each painted by a different artist — will be auctioned off Sept. 27 with the proceeds going to the BC Lions Society Easter Seal Houses and Easter Seal Camps for children with disabilities.  In the meantime they're fashioning the corners of our streets, fascinating and yet somehow they feel lost in time...

Read the Vancouver Sun for the history of the subterranean terracotta warriors as well as a photo gallery of the Vancouver statues. If you’d like to see them in person, 24 Hours has a map pointing to the location of each sculpture.

These are fun statues.   In Lawrence kansas we had JayHawks like these.  They are a good fund raiser as well. Thank you for sharing the photos.
