Terracotta Army Xi’an. Here is my final post from Xi’an. We were there for a total of 5 days but we managed to check out quite a lot of Xi’an. We went to muslim street almost everyday, had a wander around the Drum Tower and visited a few restaurants.
On the final day we were in Xi’an we went to see the Terracotta Army which was really superb. Legend has it that the workers who made these life-sized characters were killed and in some cases mummified in some of the figures. While I’m not a historian or entirely believe/disbelieve this the hanger where the warrior were standing did feel quite eery.
I was a little bit annoyed on the day as when we walked into the first hanger there was a clear and large no photography sign and to be fair I still took photos as did other people. But as we were leaving I saw loads of people shooting photos with tripods, timers, etc so I was a little annoyed about not using a tripod but c’est la vie.
It has pretty awesome however that every character has an individual look. Here are just a few of the pictures that I took on the day.
I just had to include the last picture showing myself and Liv. As part of the exhibition you can dress up like a warrior complete with weapons and awesome outfit. This is how we look.
