Mancave Turns 3 - Gains 2,000 Years

Today, marks three years to the day that contracts were exchanged and the Mancave officially came in to being. There have been many a purchase and renovation project along the way, but my favourite isn't a shiny new toy, but rather something a little less contemporary...

The pictured artifact is a pottery warrior head from the Chinese Han Dynasty. That makes it around 2,000 years old. It's remarkable to think of any object having such provenance, especially when it's not behind glass  in a museum. Sir David Tang would certainly approve. I think alongside plants and live animals, artifacts like these lend a very powerful 'anti-design' balance to overly constructed interiors.

Forever grateful to the friend and colleague who very generously gifted it to me.
