Hayakawa Shokosai I was the first Japanese basket artist to sign his works. These elegant miniature baskets are dated 1885 and are made from bamboo, rattan, hemp leaf, and more. They’re perfect for holding little sweets that go with sencha tea (roasted green leaves). You can see these and more in our Japanese baskets galleries. Also, doesn’t this look like a painting?
The terracotta warriors inspire awe, wonder, joy, intrigue, and…facial hair envy.
I guess you could say China’s First Emperor was a bit confident and sure of himself? It happens when you’re affiliated with the unification of China, the Great Wall, and the legendary terracotta warriors.
The #terracottawarriors will be gone in the blink of an eye. You really don’t want to miss this exhibition.

When major Western chains spice it up a little and adapt to adopted countries, customizing here and there. Say what you will about Starbucks, but this is interesting.

So I went to an exhibit in San Francisco about the terracotta soldiers. I posted the pictures on FB and this happened.
Ha! Don’t forget to tag your pals on Facebook. Ohhhhhh Facebook. We suppose this is just good facial features recognition at work. Thanks for checking out our terracotta warriors exhibition and posting this, jeanniebieber.
Many consider this martial arts / tragic romance epic an Asian cinema classic, and that’s why we’re screening it. It’s gotten rave reviews, but regardless of what the critics say, House of Flying Daggers is simply a gorgeous film.
Steeped in vivid colors, lush cinematography, and crazy action-drama, it’s directed by the famous Zhang Yimou and stars some of Asia’s biggest stars: Zhang Ziyi, Andy Lau, and Takeshi Kaneshiro.
Watch it with us on Thursday, May 23, 6:00 pm. Then see the terracotta warriors afterwards. All for just $10.
