Great mcmtanyel 2019-06-13 21:46

Hello Jorge,
Nice close up of these soldiers. I still do not understand how they thought a few, OK - a few thousand statues would protect them. 👍🏻
Regards,
MT

Default To mcmtanyel: protection

murat

these sculptures were special because before them it was usual the king be buried with wives and soldiers alive.
the sculptures preserved the life of the soldiers.
mind of people of those days wasn't similar with ours today, there was a special magical element we lost.
most of religions we have today were created in those "magical" times, sacred books are filled with amazing things.
the belief of the others who are different of ours is ever strange and difficult to understand, even today.

take care

jorge
