Considered to be one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century, the terracotta warriors are part of the massive imperial tomb of Qin Shi Huang (259 BC–210 BC), the controversial emperor who unified China. Among the 8,000 life-size figures excavated since 1974 are warriors, chariots, horses, officials, acrobats, and musicians. These stunning sculptures—made to protect the Emperor in his next life—reflect the exquisite craftsmanship and advanced techniques used by the ancient Chinese craftsmen.
This terracotta reproduction of the Cavalryman was manufactured on the site of the archaeological museum in China where the original terracotta figures were excavated. Gift box included.
