31 The Guardian Warrior by Mandy Boursicot in Vancouver, Canada

In 210 B.C., Emperor Qin Shi Huang was buried in China along with 8,000 terracotta soldiers made from clay. The tomb was discovered in 1974. This sculpture called “The Guardian Warrior” by Mandy Boursicot is a tribute to that historic tomb. It was one of 33 life-sized terracotta warrior sculptures that were painted by local artists in 2012 and displayed at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden in Chinatown. Next they lined the street corners of downtown, Vancouver, before being auctioned off with proceeds going to the BC Lions Society Easter Seal Houses.
