Haniwa Revisited (1)

Last year I posted a few shots of some of the haniwa at Heiwadai Park here in Miyazaki. I was there again today and took some new ones. You can click the images to get a larger view.


  1. These are wonderful - are they old? Who made them?

  2. Susan,
    Any original haniwa would be about 1500 years old (and much too valuable to have out in an open park like this). These ones are replicas. There's more info in the Wikipedia link in the post. They're pretty interesting to photograph.
