KRISTINA
Although it is not the first time I visited the Terracotta Army, it was still stunning to see the sight before me. Whenever the terracotta warriors and horses gather, it not only attracts tourists, but the locals as well. This project has been ongoing for about 39 years. The Imperial Tomb of the first feudal emperor in Chinese history is not just hailed as the eight wonder of the world, but it is also a treasure of ancient human civilization in a spiritual sense. I went to all three of the pits with my companions and saw archaeological scholars cleaning and maintaining the relics. Each of the terracotta warriors and horses is about 1.8 to 2 meters high. It is said that there are thousands of them and each one is different. The process to make them is also quite complicated. It needs to be shaped with yellow mud and then calcined in the kiln. With careful painting to finish, a terracotta warrior can be created.
