The making of reproductions of Qin terracotta warriors began in 1989. The idea was born during the prospecting and drilling on a market garden of Liucunbao Canton, Xi'an, by archaeologists from the Academy of Sciences of China. They unearthed 21 large ovens used 2,100 years ago to shape warriors and terracotta horses of the Western Han Dynasty. These include state-owned, large-scale ovens specializing in the manufacture of terracotta warriors and horses for the tombs of emperors. Two of them have the ability to cook at once 350 to 400 warriors and horses.

The statues of the terracotta warriors and horses are all molded and then painted before being baked for cooking. Most of the pieces had to be first covered with a white glaze. It is especially important to take some precaution for the installation of the raw warriors in the oven. According to the principle of gravity, these must be reversed, putting the head down and feet up. This process ensures the stability of the sculptures during cooking and prevents them from falling.
