A brief history of Xi'an's warriors and Emperor Qin

First King of Qin (-247 to -221) before being the first emperor who unified China, Qin Shi Huang marked the history of this great country of the planet. He inherited one of the 7 kingdoms that divided China into -247. Emperor Qin is highly recognized for his cruelty and despotism. He has fought hard against intellectuals, guardians of traditional values.

But he is also bounded by his great vow of immortality. To this end, he enlisted the help of a magician to make him an elixir of eternal life. These are the legendary "red pearls" of cinabre (mercury sulphide). These are supposed to provide him with six years of life each, but they caused his death.

Located northeast of Xi'an, Emperor Qin's Mausoleum covers about 56 square kilometres, the largest guarded in China. It is covered by a 115 m high mound. Many pits house thousands of life-size statues of soldiers and horses in terracotta, burials and architectural remains, as well as bronze tanks and weapons. Emperor Qin did not want to be alone after his death and ordered the design of the earth sculptures of his entire army in his tomb.

Xi'an's Terracotta Army to Emperor Qin

In 1974, a Chinese peasant who dug his well in his field came across an underground cavern full of statues. He later appealed to the archaeologists. An entire army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang in clay is updated. It has 8,000 full-scale polychrome sculptures, armored warriors with different faces, horses and chariots. These Xi'an terra cotta soldiers provided protection for the mausoleum. These statues represent all the military posts that existed in China. It is a colossal and extraordinary work, done by 700,000 people over 36 years.

Since the discovery of the site by archaeologists in 1974, some of the statues have already been unearthed, and considered a wonder of the world.

Our achievements of statues of Xi'an warriors

Our reproductions of these statues of Chinese warriors stand out for their strength and strength. But the statues are decorative objects for the interior and are not guaranteed for the outside.

Our series of statues and statuettes of Xi'an warriors are developed by local craftsmen, who maintain the tradition. They are handcrafted with the terracotta clay soil of the Xi'an region.

A pretty patina has been applied to give the sculptures an authentic touch. Wear marks have been intentionally reproduced to give them an ancient aspect of the archaeological genre.

Reproductions of the Qin terracotta warriors began in 1989. The idea was born during exploration and drilling on a market garden in Liucunbao Township, Xi'an, by archaeologists from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. They found 21 large kilns used 2,100 years ago to shape warriors and terracotta horses from the Western Han Dynasty. These include large-scale state ovens, specialized in the manufacture of terracotta warriors and horses, for the tombs of emperors. Two of them have the ability to cook both 350 to 400 warriors and horses.

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