Terracotta Warriors

Check this out. Geo-modeler J.A. Alvarez pointed out to me a nice series of models he made-- the housing for the famous terracotta warriors in Shaanxi province, China.

The figures, estimated to be about 8000 in number, date from over two thousand years ago and were discovered by farmers accidentally in several buried pits in the 1970s.

More models can be seen HERE and HERE.

This model is included in my following 3D model collections: Museum, *Favorite Thumbnails
