The impressive (if not a little random!) Chinese Pagoda in Victoria Park. From the research I have done, it seems that in 1842 a Pagoda was built as an entrance to a Chinese Exhibition in London. After the exhibition, the Pagoda was purchased for display in Victoria Park. Sadly, it suffered considerable damage during World War II and over time fell into disrepair before eventually being demolished in 1956. In 2010, the Borough was awarded a grant for improvements to Victoria Park. The funds were used to restore the landscape and a new Pagoda was introduced, built on the original location in the Park.

COULD RUSSELL BE AN ALL-STAR?
After a 31-point, 8-assist game that led the #Nets past the #Kings on #MLKDay, #DAngeloRussell was named the #EasternConference Player of the Week. That was his 8th 30-point game this season and the first time a #Brooklyn player won such award in 3 years. In a yet-again weak #East, the #BrooklynNets are on a fire run, winning 17 of their last 22 games, putting them in 6th place, just below the #Celtics. And it’s all because of the surprisingly exceptional season #Russell has been having. The former #Lakers guard has been averaging 19.2 PPG and 6.4 APG this season, and shooting 43.8% from the field and 37.9% beyond the 3pt line, all career-highs for the player. If it wasn’t for #Wade’s justified farewell season or #JeremyLin’s devoted fanbase, @dloading could easily be a reserve in the upcoming #AllStar game. Playing in a big market city and paired up with other big-time ballers like #SpencerDinwiddie and #CarisLeVert, #DAngelo should be actively recruiting free agents this offseason, as the Nets might finally have a chance to fight for the top of the East next season. WHO SHOULD COME TO BROOKLYN? 🤔

Treasure: 👉 Terracotta Army - III century BC
Civilization: 💫 China
Family: 🖼@europe_treasures | @tesori_italiani⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 The Terracotta Army is an extraordinary collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE and whose purpose was to protect the emperor in his afterlife. The figures, dating from approximately the late third century BC, were discovered in 1974 by local farmers in Lintong District, Xi'an, People's Republic of China, Shaanxi province. The figures vary in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals. The figures include warriors, chariots and horses. Estimates from 2007 were that the three pits containing the Terracotta Army held more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which remained buried in the pits nearby Qin Shi Huang's mausoleum. Other terracotta non-military figures were found in other pits, including officials, acrobats, strongmen, and musicians. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛
