Terra Cotta Soldier On Display

Terra Cotta Soldier, originally uploaded by yellojkt.

Most of the sculpture figures at the Xian terra cotta warriors complex are kept within the pits where they were found. Many of them have even been reburied to preserve them.

A select few are on display at the main level in glass cases so that visitors can see the exquisite detail in these finely crafted clay pieces. Here is an army officer holding a weapon that has rotted away long ago.
