The terra cotta figures, which are over 2,000 years old, once guarded the tomb of Chinese emperor, Qín Shǐhuáng Líng. They were accidentally discovered in 1974 in Xi'an, Shanxi province, by some local farmers.
In China, there are three pits containing over 2,000 soldiers and 100 chariots with 400 horses and 300 cavalry horses -- all made from terra cotta and all life-size, varying in height from nearly 6 feet tall to 6 feet 5 inches.
