Terracotta Warriors and Lacquer Furniture Factory in Xi’an, China

If you were fascinated by the Terracotta Army you saw at the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum, you might want to take home a facsimile as a souvenir. A great place to shop is the state-run Xi’an Daqin Terracotta Warriors & Lacquer Furniture Art Factory. Their warrior selection ranges from trinkets to full-size replicas. If you have plenty of Chinese yuan burning a hole in your wallet, you can custom order a warrior featuring your face and head. As you watch the artisans sculpt the soldiers, you get a better appreciation of the time required to create over 8,000 of them at the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor.
