Terracotta Chinese Warriors w Horse Oriental 5 pc Set Clay



DESCRIPTION: Magnificent Oriental Clay Terra Cotta Warrior Garden Statues.  Authentic reproductions of the famous Terra Cotta Warriors of China.  Reproduced in Clay just like the originals. Authentic in every detail. A great guardian for your garden, office and home.
  • One of the most famous archaeological sites in the world is the buried army of China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. The Qin Dynasty came to an end in 206 B.C. In 1974, farmers made this extraordinary discovery while drilling wells in search of water near the Chinese city of Xi'an.  Since that time, millions of visitors have marveled at the ongoing excavation.  Each of the over 8,000 life-sized terra-cotta figures, organized in ranks of infantry, cavalry and charioteers, are modeled with distinctive features and are thought to be portraits of actual, living soldiers from that time. 

  • Our set of four gray terra-cotta reproductions is made by a family workshop in Xi'an not far from the original site. These stately figures capture the proud military bearing detailed uniform regalia of the originals. An excellent gift for a military enthusiast or history buff. 

  • Millions of visitors to Xi'an, China have marveled at the excavation of the 2,000-year-old terracotta armies of China's first emperor Qin Shi Huang. More than 8,000 life-size figures of soldiers and horses were buried to 
  • protect the emperor's tomb. Even more remarkable is that this multitude  of statues are each modeled with unique, distinctive features and are thought to be portraits of living figures. The emperor Qin Shi Huang would not have liked to hear it, but reduced down to a more modest size, some of his loyal soldiers turn out to make evocative table and desktop decorations, guarding personal documents particularly effectively. 

  • Earth element absorbs negative energy in Feng Shui!

MEASUREMENTS: Warriors 6" Height. Horse 4.5" Height.
