Postcard Perfect 050: Dragon-head of Thang Long

Postcard Perfect New

Eversince our host at Postcard Perfect announced the new schedule for this meme, I had only posted two, including today’s entry. I’m ashamed to say that in both instances I posted late *cringe* After the Wimbledon, I joined my husband in the veranda garden, pulling out weeds and sweeping dead leaves. Luckily we do not have a lawn, becase we live in an apartment, so I don’t have to worry too much about grass.  Otherwise, I would really demand a push reel mower to make my life easier, lol.

 No more excuses though. Time for the postcard… here’s one showing an important artifact, and still intact, that was discovered in the relic site at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi, Vietnam.
A well-preserved terracotta dragon head (Ly dynasty, 11th-12th century) is one of the hundreds of  artifacts excavated at the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long.

The central sector of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long – Hanoi, which has been recognized as a World Cultural Heritage, covers about 18,000m2, consisting of the archaeological site at No. 18, Hoang Dieu Street and the area of the old Hanoi Citadel. –      Discover Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi, Indochinapioneer.com

This postcard, although showing a Vietnamese relic, was sent to me by my friend Cheerful, aka, the Postcrossing Mom, who is now based in Thailand. She seldom updates her postcard blog now due to  her mommy duties but, I assure you, she is still a very active postcrosser. You can find her blog link on my blog list, on the right sidebar. Khap khun kaa, Che.
