Terra Cotta Warriors at National Geographic

I got to see the Terra Cotta Warriors at the National Geographic last Thursday. What an amazing exhibit. The detail is astounding. You can make out individual whiskers in the moustaches; as well as parts in their hair. There are folds in the sleeves of garments. Truly amazing.

You can learn more about them by going to the National Geographic site.

There are some 1,000 of the warriors that have been uncovered but there is an estimated 7,000 that have not been uncovered.

Follow this link to a great site giving you information on the tour.

If you get a chance you must see this.

This warrior seemed to be much more animated then the rest.
