I took these pictures in an exposition of 10 of the 3000 terra cotta soldiers which had been discovered in China. (more about it here) The statues were 1.80 m (5.9 ft) high and exposed in a church in Masseik (Belgium)

I love the terracotta soldiers and wished I would have seen them when the exhibition was in Barcelona, but when I was there the queue meant...at least 2 hours waiting under the sun.

My neighbors have one at their entrance: it's a fake one, ha! but from China where they lived for 3 years.
Great choice for the theme!!!

Amazing. I was delighted to be able to see some of the warriors at the British Museum last year. Happy weekend

Nice shots of what I happen to think are wondrous sculptures -- by themselves as well as in the large group that they were discovered being a part of.

Ah! I think you win for most unusual hands I have seen today! Nice job Gattina!

I would like to see them in real life--in place in their multitudes. Good idea focusing on their hands.
