"Kneeling Archer" Terracotta Army Tip by Willettsworld

Terracotta Army, Xi'an: 161 reviews and 357 photos

 
 

This is probably the most famous of all the 8,000 warriors found so far. Cloaked in upper-body armour and kneeling in a state of preparation, this archer is alert although his wooden bow has disintegrated. His square-toed shoes are studded for extra grip.
