Terra Cotta Soldiers

Terra Cotta Soldiers, originally uploaded by yellojkt.

Each of the 8000 terra cotta soldiers is unique with separate features, clothes, hair, and facial expressions. As seen in the front figure in this picture, many held wooden weapons that have long rotted away. The original paint and glazing has faded over the past 18 centuries, but the figures remain.
