This statue was part of the massive army of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang (259-210 BCE), who unified China in a series of wars between 246 and 221 BC. He constructed himself a massive underground tomb, a 22 square mile city guarded by a life-size terracotta army including warriors, infantrymen, horses, chariots and all their attendants and weaponry. Over 7000 terracotta soldiers, horses, and countless bronzes have been discovered in this burial since 1974 in X'ian.
