WEEKLY WINNERS - Chinese Terra Cotta Army
More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
Last sunday I went to Masseik, a little town in Belgium where the exposition of the chinese Terra Cotta army took place. 10 of the about 3000 soldiers were exposed. They date from 210 BCE. They all were in human size (1.80 m, 5.9ft) and really very impressive !
There were also animals
The whole army once looked like these two soldiers. They had been restored in their original colors.
You can read more about this army here in Wikipedia.
