Kneeling archers were unearthed in the east of Pit No. 2. They form the archer battle formation together with standing archers. Kneeling archers are placed in the center of the formation, surrounded by standing archers. Covered in armor and with their hair fixed in a bun, they place both hands on their waist and look straight ahead. The calm expressions on their faces tell that they are ready to shoot at the enemy any time. Although Qin Shi Huang’s reign was short with only 12 years, the soldiers in his underground empire are still waiting for his orders.
At present, there are altogether 9 terracotta generals excavated from the pits, which makes the generals more valuable and especially eye-cYou can tell which one is a general just by looking at what they wear. The most prominent feature is the delicate decorations on their chests which indicate their high rank. Standing at the front of the formation with arms at his sides, the general gives his soldiers a determined look. It’s like saying, “You all are heroes. We will win this!” However, Qin Shi Huang’s warriors did not win in every battle. For example, the emperor once sent a young ambitious general Li Xin to conquer the Chu State, but the general underestimated the enemy and failed at a heavy cost. Finally, it was the veteran general Wang Jian that defeated the Chu army. What surprised the scholars was that all 9 of them were unearthed from Pit No. 1 and Pit No. 2, and not a single general was found in Pit No. 3 which is believed to be the headquarters of the underground army.
There is a cavalry warrior standing in front of each horse, holding the rein in one hand. Their armor (only to their waists) is slightly shorter than that of infantry warriors and they have no shoulder protector to make it easier for them to ride horses and use crossbows during battles. They also wear small cap which is fastened under their chins to prevent their hair flowing loose in the wind. From their special costume, we can clearly see that the ancient cavalrymen were required to act quickly. You will be surprised by the wisdom of Chinese people at that time and their extraordinary focus on detail.
Chariot One, 2.25 meters long, 1.52 meters high and with a weight of 1,061 kilograms, was broken into 1,360 pieces when first discovered in 1980. Now it has been well restored (it took the experts 8 years to restore Chariot One and Chariot Two). There is a canopy protruding from the carriage. It serves as an umbrella providing shelter from the sun and rain and also allows the rider to look at the four sides. It’s truly a masterpiece of ancient art of bronze wares in China.
The above are only a few of the popular ones. If you are interested in buying our terracotta warrior replicas, purchasing Chinese traditional ceramic,lacquerware or other souvenirs from China, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] for more details.
