Thanks for the pic! :) Not sure where this one hails from, but I have a deep fondness for Tang Chinese tomb guardians.

I think this one is Shang (about 1000 years earlier?). I've seen him in person, underground in DC at the Sackler under the Freer.

Anyway, I wouldn't use a blank sheet for a picture of God, not as long as there's even one tomb guardian left
in even one museum holding the line against blankness.

Thanks. I think Shang is more than 1000 years prior to Shang, but I haven't looked it up recently.

Much as I enjoy those guys, I just don't see the tomb guardians as God, little gods perhaps, but no capital "G." :)

But perhaps we can add to the list the desire to face the darkness and find light? Light being defined in all kinds of ways by all kinds of people.

Blessings,
