A real must to visit if you’re ever in Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China.
The Terracotta Army of Han (206BC-24AD). The funerary objects of the king, about 4,800 pieces of colored terracotta warriors and horses about 40 cm (15.7 inches).
There are six pits altogether in the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of the Han Dynasty: three infantry pits, one pottery-guard pit, one cavalry pit and one chariot pit. So far only two infantry pits and one pottery-guard pit have been excavated fully. In the two infantry pits there are about 1,016 pottery figures in Pit No.1 and 1,377 in Pit No.2.
The warriors and horses are basically in good condition and they are all arranged in battle formation of the Chu Kingdom in the early Western Han Dynasty, with soldiers as well as officers visible in the infantry. The soldiers are in different positions: some are standing, still armed with crossbows and in their suits of armor, and some are kneeling.
The look of the broken ancient warrior was a true inspiration to me.
