Overview

In 1974, farmers in the north-central Shaanxi Province discovered the vast burial chamber of 2rd century Chinese Emperor Qin Shihuangdi. It contained more than 7,000 life-size terra cotta warriors, an incredible feat of craftsmanship and one of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries of the past 100 years.


These tabletop figures are accurate miniature replicas of a general, soldier, archer, and horse excavated at the site. Made in China from hand-carved molds, their rustic finish evokes the centuries-old appearance of the army that remains amassed at the burial site.
