Over 2,200 years ago China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huagn, in search of immortality, ordered the construction of a vast army of 8,000 life-sized Terra Cotta warriors. For 36 years, more than 700,000 laborers worked on this huge project. Surrounding his tomb and then buried under layers of earth and sand, this amazing archeological treasure was first discovered in 1974, by a Chinese farmer digging a well. The subject of numerous articles, television shows, and visited by over 2 million visitors each year, the site is considered one of the wonders of the ancient world.
I believe this statute is a reproduction of these statutes. It is only the body as one of the hands and the head are missing. I believe this is the way it was made but I'm not sure. It has a chip in the neck front so maybe the hand and head were broken. It measures 12 1/2" tall, 3" deep and 4 1/2" wide. It comes in the original box. The box is in good shape but is old so has a couple of stains on it.
