        Terra Cotta Warriors

        This is an image of some of the terra cotta warriors found in the mausoleum of the first Chinese Emperor Qin Shi Huang (221-210 B.C.) in Xi'an. The tomb, under an earthen pyramid, was discovered in 1974 and excavations are ongoing. The ceramic army that accompanied the ruler into the afterlife is estimated to consist of over 8,000 soldiers (each with a unique face), 100 chariots with 400 horses, and 300 cavalry horses.
