The Terracotta Warriors.


The Terracotta Warriors were created to guard and serve Shi Huangdi in the afterlife, similar to the shabti of ancient Egypt. They were arranged in a massive necropolis, which was found by farmers in 1974. The army is made up of over 8,000 soldiers, each with their own unique design.
