Terracotta Warriors

In 1974 a chance discovery took the world by surprise.  What was found were lifesize clay terracotta  figures…but not just a few- over 8,000!  In sheer numbers and scale, the terracotta army is a remarkable achievement. Artistically and technically it stands alone in the arts of China

Every single soldier is unique, no two are alike, their facial expressions, hair style, posture, height and uniform, all denoting their position and rank within the army.  Fifth Graders discussed and examined this amazing discovery and then created their own warriors using model magic.  Check out our army!
