Terracotta Soldiers First Emperor of China

From The Terracotta Army of the First Emperor of China.
"The buried army of the First Emperor of China is one of the largest and most stunning archaeological finds of the 20th centuiy. Discovered in 1974 at Lintong, 35 kilometres east of Xi’an, the warriors and horses have deservedly become known as a Wonder of the World.
Now exhibited in situ, the life-size terracotta figures so far excavated testify to the power of the man for whom they were moulded to protect in afterlife — Emperor Qin Shihuangdi, the First Emperor of China (259-210BC)."
