Xuzhou Terracotta Warriors

Xuzhou, China

The impressive Xuzhou Terracotta Warriors form a part of the tomb of Liuwu, a Western Han Dynasty Emperor. These relics were discovered in the Jiangsu Province of China and excavated in 1984 where a museum was established. The museum has 6 sections (pits) spread over an area of 6,000 square meters. The relics include 4,800 terracotta warriors and horses that are 40cms in size, unlike the life-size ones of Qing Dynasty found in Xian. The warriors have different positions. Some of them are standing wearing their armors, some are kneeling, and some are aiming crossbows. The museum also has a vast collection of weapons and some cultural artifacts of that Han Dynasty.
