During the holiday my cousin and I visited Xi'an to check out the famous Terracotta Warriors.
Our Tour-guide, Helen showed us around:
The Army is housed in three separate buildings, the oldest one likens to an old military hanger and houses the most impressive display of the army. There is even a warrior triage section in the back where they are being painstakingly cleaned and pieced back together. The Farmer that found them was there, but he wouldn't let his picture be taken...something about being old and it would steal his Spirit. No Kidding.
The second building is a bit newer and houses a smaller number of warriors, which are shattered...yet, it gives a good idea of how the warriors were placed in their final resting spot via ramp.
There's one more spot, but FIRST! There's a shop where you too can buy a Terracotta warrior with authentic dirt from the same ground that surrounded their 2k year resting place. My cousin purchased two miniatures.
Then off to the third building, which is more of a Beijing-style building. A big impressive looking... thing. This is the largest excavation and the viewing vantage is much higher than that of the other two. More thought was put into it being a tourist site. They have several warriors encased for viewing up-close.
As for this piece of...Art? Your guess is as good as mine:
