Century 21 Canada recently unveiled its sponsored Terracotta Warrior sculpture as a part of Easter Seals’ newest art project in British Columbia. The sculpture will be on display in front of the Sutton Place Hotel in Downtown Vancouver.
Century 21was matched with local artist Juma Wu, who named her design, I Through the Space of Time. Her story for the warrior is one of transformation for a Terracotta Warrior statue named David Chin. From being buried for centuries as a guardian to the Emperor Qin Shi Huang, David was unearthed in 1974. He traveled through time and space to be in Vancouver with a new body and a new purpose – to provide enjoyment to all who see him.
Other Terracotta Warriors will be placed in public locations around the Lower Mainland until October. A Terracotta Warrior Map is being distributed to participating communities to show sponsors, artists and the location of all the warriors.
The Warriors will be auctioned off on Sept. 27 to raise funds for the B.C. Lions Society and Easter Seals.
