Terra Gatto Warriors – Denise Rouleau

So you’ve been to the Minneapolis Institute of Art to see the Terra-cotta Warriors of Ancient China… but now is your chance to see the Terra Gatto Warriors of Minnesota!

Why the fascination with cats? The mythology and lore surrounding cats can be found all around the world from ancient times to the present day. Whether regarded as symbols of good fortune or bad luck, cats seemingly possess their own power and sense of mystery. Legend tells us how the ancient Egyptians unleashed thousands of cats to thwart an attack of foreign invaders. This act terrified the advancing army into a hasty retreat. Take the Chinese Terra Cotta Warriors, throw in an Egyptian legend, give it an Italian twist and you have Terra-Gatto Warriors…unleash the cats! – Denise Rouleau
