Terracotta Warriors, Xi'an, China

It's probable a picture of these terracotta warriors doesn't do justice at all to what they look like or the impact they have when you are looking at them in person. I'll have to ask my friend who sent the postcard.

  1. Nice pic. In China one must visit eighth wonder of the world, the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses. Xianyang village is digging well and suddenly came across wrecked ceramic figures. After detailed excavation was initially uncovered an oblong shaped pit area full with buried terra cotta warriors and horses that belonged to the Qin Dynasty. A row of outside facing warriors carrying crossbows, arrows and several far-distance firing weaponry located in the south, north and west of the passage. The third pit located north to the first pit and west of the second pit has a concave plane with pottery models. Tourists are banned from visiting the pits or touching the clay warriors.For more details refer Terracotta Warriors
