Terracotta Warriors

First Emperor Qin ordered the creation of this army of terracotta statues. It was made to be buried with him, it is said: as a show of his glory, to remember the army that triumphed over the other States to unite China, and because it was believed that objects like statues can be animated in the afterlife, and Qin required an after-death army.

It took about 38 years to make the whole army.
