Mongol Hordes Hit London



The innocuous and fun Jelly Babies have been replaced by the more controversial figure of Genghis Kahn in the centre of Marble Arch. Strange choice, nice enough sculpture.

Despite common wisdom, Western Civilisation owes as much, or maybe more to the concepts of Kahn than the Greeks or Romans. And while the Sun may not have set on Victoria's Empire, it was puny compared to Khan's. Ghengis Khan and the Making of the Modern World (Wearherford) is very emlightening and a great read.

Hi
I am a regular reader of your blog and I'm currently in London. I saw an elephant located on the top of the door of the 29 Buckingham Gate. I don't know if you have it in your Elephant series. I got a picture for you but as I could not find your email address... See you Eric. eric.bruth@gmail.com

That's a gorgeous statue. Very unusual.

To be honest I prefere the Jelly Babies. This new statue is nice although the Jelly Babies "cheered up" the area. Do you know where the Jelly Babies were relocated? Gabi
