Handmade Set of 4 Terracotta Warrior Figurines (China)
ITEM#: 16418084Over 2,200 years ago China's first emperor ordered the construction of a vast underground army of 8,000 life-size terra cotta warriors. For 36 years more than 700,000 laborers worked on this enormous project. Each of the soldiers has a unique and distinctive face, and it is thought that real soldiers served as models. Formal excavation began in Xi'an, the ancient capital of the Emperor, in 1974 and will continue for many years. The statues were brightly colored when unearthed but moments later turned to the dark grey color as they appear today.

Story Behind the Art:
This handcrafted item and many others come from a third generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.
