Gilda's Photos - Xian, Terracotta Warriors, Part 2

The soldier behind me is in position to ride a chariot

According to our tour guide, each warrior face was different, and created
by a craftsman based on sketches from actual faces



The figures were destroyed shortly after the tomb was constructed
so as they are unearthed, they need to be reassembled
