Terracotta Warriors in China...each one taken from a specific soldier, in a specific position in a company.  Each one-hand molded, fired, painted, armed with real weapons, placed in position, covered by roofing and meters of soil over the top.  Thousands of years later, after being lost in time, they still are awe inspiring, and beautiful.

Xian, China: The terracotta army is guarding the tomb of the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang di. His fear of death and and quest for immortality brought the creation of these warriors. They are life-sized and individually modelled with great detail.

Terracotta Army, in Xian one of the most spectacular things I have seen. Just crazy to think that these were all made to protect someone in their afterlife and buried!
