Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic
Window of the World, China. August 2009
I don’t know why but the moment I saw this week’s photo challenge of relic, I immediately thought of this photo. This is a replica of the Globose that exists in the public Anthropology Museum of Mexico that I saw at the Window of the World when I was travelling in China several years ago. A relic to me means something old that contains a lot of history. Although I can’t find anything about this Globose on the Internet, I’m sure it contains a lot of history too (lol, sounds so sketchy!).
Here’s what the plaque said:
*The Window of the World is a theme park in China in Shenzhen which reproduced a lot of the world’s major tourist attractions in a “mini world” series. Everything is a replica and tiny so that you can take pictures with it. It’s sort of like how you can travel the world in a day by seeing the Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls, New York skyscrapers, India’s Taj Mahal, and more. I loved it!
