Photographer's Note

Thracian Hero Statue. There were over 4,000 bas relief sculptures found like the one at right, but before this statue was discovered, only 1 previous discovery of a Thracian Hero statue was made, and that one is in the Sofia Museum. This one resides in the Varna Museum. If you're prepared to pay a 20 lev tax, photography with no flash is permitted, despite the no photos signs. There is a postcards section in the entrance. But they had no postcards of this, so I asked if could I go back and get one please? It was donated to the museum from a local from near Plovdiv, south of Sofia & dates from the 1st or 2nd century AD / CE.
