The Terracotta Army is a collection of over 8,000 soldiers (chariots, horses, weapons, etc.) depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China, circa 210 BC. The army was built in battle formation in order to guard the tomb of emperor. All the soldiers have unique expressions and facial features.
It is said that after the workers spent 37 years building the army and tomb, they were buried alive in the it. What is also fascinating about the tomb, which basically looks like a grassy hill, is that it has never been excavated. It was built so that no one would dare try...it is laced with copious amounts of mercury and other booby trap surprises.
You can buy a life sized replica of one of these warriors for about $1500 USD, delivered to you anywhere in the world. I'm not saying I'm buying one, but I do admit that I've spent more money on far more useless things in my life.
