In 1974, the vast burial chamber of third-century Chinese Emperor Qin Shihuangdi was discovered by farmers in the north-central Shaanxi Province. It contained more than 7,000 life-size terra-cotta warriors. This set of four handcrafted miniature terra-cotta models of classic poses— general, soldier, and archer—arrives in a black silk gift box. The National Geographic Museum's 2009–2010 "Terra Cotta Warriors" exhibition was the most well attended in the museum's history, and these figures are a handsome commemoration of this landmark event.


Box is 7"W x 9"H. Warriors are 5"H (kneeling)–6"H (standing).


From left to right as pictured here are an administrative officer, a kneeling archer, a soldier, and a general.

The price of this set was less than the set in the gift shop in Xian, China, adjacent to the actual Terracotta Soldier excavations. However, I experienced two major problems. The first is the uneven bases that i had to build up with craft glue in order to get them to stand up for display. The second is that it is extremely difficult to determine which is the soldier and ranking officer. The description refers to only three of the four statues. It is relatively easy to pick out the General and Kneeling Archer, but the last two of the four is a guess, even with a book and different material/brochures that I brought home with me. The figures advertised should have corresponding titles for the rank or character that they represent.

I love the look of these warriors, but the coloration of one is quite different than the other three. Several have to be propped against something because the bottoms are not entirely flat, so they are not very stable. I still love them and they fit well with my decor, however.

      I will display the Terra-Cotta figures in my classroom and will refer to them in the 7th and 10th grade classes. Most of my students are visual learners and seeing these figures will help them to remember the Qin dynasty.

            This product was purchased as a gift for our son-in-law. This is a very well made product but is too expensive.

              I'm a HS History teacher and when I saw these in the NG flyer I had to order them. The box they come in is very historical, and the characters really look good on my file cabinet next to my presidential bobbleheads. They look and feel older, like artifacts!!!

                Comments about Terra-cotta Chinese Warriors - Set of 4:

                After reading other reviews, I was a bit antsy about these, but a friend is really into this genre of art/artifacts and thought it would be a fun, inexpensive gift. Figured that, if they arrived broken, it would maybe even be more realistic. Received them today. They were carefully packaged, well presented and exactly as they look in the picture. No, they are not the color of a terra cotta pot, but that's not how they look in the picture. No broken pieces, chips or inability to stand on their own. Very pleased.

                  I was a little hesitant to order due to some poor reviews about fragility, but I received these today and they are beautiful! Received in PERFECT condition and look as pictured in catalog. I think they are good quality and I cannot wait to give them as gift on Christmas!
