    Terracotta army - this burial of the at least 8099 full-scale terracotta statues of Chinese soldiers and their horses, discovered next to the tomb of Chinese emperor tsin Shi by Juan di, not far from g. of sian' in 1974. Terracotta statues were concealed together with the first emperor of the dynasty Of tsin' - Tsinem Shikhuandi in 210-209 yr. to Ne. They were discovered during March 1974 by local farmers during boring of artesian well to the east from Lishan mountain. Soldiers and horses of terracotta army were made in different regions of China. The institute of the botany of the Chinese academy of sciences drew this conclusion after comparing models and regions of the propagation of pollen from the statues. Researchers explained cto horses they manufactured directly next to nekropolem, probably in order to simplify their transport (weight of horse sculpture of approximately 200 kilograms), statues of soldiers lighter, their weight is approximately 135 kilograms and the place of their production is thus far unknown.

    Amazing eh.... I've read about these before. They say each soldier had a different facial expression and not all from one mold.
