General at Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum in Xi’an, China

After marveling at the impressive terracotta figures in the three pits at Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum, your next stop is Exhibition Hall. This is your chance to inspect a huge array of artifacts behind protective glass. Among the exhibits are samples of each type of soldier, animal, weapon and vehicle uncovered during excavation. This clay figure represents a general, one of seven unearthed to date. The highest-ranking officer is wearing armor decorated with eight knotted ribbons over a double-layered robe.
