China - Tang Dynasty

This one was sent by Liyuan! Her hometown is Qingdao, a beautiful seaside city. The postcard shows a painted clay sculpture from the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 AD), an imperial dynasty of China, whose capital was Chang'an (present-day Xi'an), which at the time was the most populous city in the world, it's generally regarded as a high point in Chinese civilization, a golden age of cosmopolitan culture; this dynasty was largely a period of progress and stability.
