The Terra-Cotta Warriors & Horses - Over 8,000 life-size Terra-Cotta Figures that were buried with and for the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC) Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

Each Terra-Cotta Warrior & Horse" is different with different poses (standing or crouching), heights, faces, hairstyles, and uniforms in accordance to their rank.

There are infantrymen, archers, and officers with real weapons. Also Terra-Cotta horses with war chariots.

The Terra-Cotta Figures were discovered in 1974 by farmers digging a water well. The Terra-Cotta Figures were discovered in three different pits.

The archaeological excavations are still ongoing.

Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of the State of Qin (or simply known as the First Emperor), unified China after the Warring States Period.

He standardized writing, weights and measures, currency, and established the system of prefectures and counties.

He initiated the building of the Great Wall, and of course, he created the Terra-Cotta Figures for his mausoleum for his protection and use in the after-life.
