Defense Against The Charge

Or charging in . . .

In one of the outlying regions of Xian, between the main city and the Terracotta Army excavation site, our tour bus made something like a 320 degree turn at an intersection where this monument was under construction. What you see here is all that was visible above the plywood safety barrier. I snapped this as we went by, and thus got a poor angle, but we were already pulling away before I could get my camera up and go for the shot. I would love to know what part of local history this monument represents.

Texture was added to the sky to give it a little interest.
