Solid concrete version of a Terracotta Warrior.
First Emperor Qin (/chin/), from whom China gets its name, ordered the creation of an army of terracotta statues. It was made to be buried with him, it is said:
- as a show of his glory,
- to remember the army that triumphed over the other Warring States to unite China, and
- because it was believed that objects like statues can be animated in the afterlife, and Qin Shihuang required an after-death army.
Price is for one Terracotta Warrior
