Terracotta Army, Xi'an: 162 reviews and 358 photos

Antes de ir a ver a los guerreros de Terracota , fuimos a ver una fábrica , donde los estaban haciendo de todos los tamaños y formas
Allí aprendimos que el barro se cuece a 600º , la cerámica a 700º y la terracota a 900º y además se le añade caolín para darle un mejor acabado
Los cuerpos de los guerreros pueden ser iguales , sobre todo los del mismo grupo militar y rango , pero los brazos y la cabeza son todos distintos , pero nunca igual que la cara real de ningún guerrero
Parecen de verdad !!!!!!!

Before going to see the Terracotta warriors, we went to visit a factory where they were making all sizes and shapes of warriors
We learned that the mud is tretad to 600 °C, the ceramic 700 º C and terracotta to 900 º C and also kaolin is added to get a better finish
The bodies of the warriors can be equal, especially iif they are of the same military group and rank , but the arms and the head are all different, but never like the face of any real warrior
They look real!!!!
