10. Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses 


In the late 1970s, archaeologists excavated a large number of pottery warriors and horses to the east of Lishan Qinshihuang mausoleum, Lintong County, Shaanxi Province. Archaeologists unearthed three terracotta warriors and horses pits. It is estimated that the pits may contain as many as 8,000 figures together with 130 chariots with 520 horses. These sculptures was made in real size of soldiers, horses and chariots. They are so vividly and exquisitely made and painted with colours, showing the skilful workmanship of Chinese designers 2,000 years ago. Therefore, some international famous historical archaeologists think it is comparable with the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World”, calling it “the Eighth Wonder of the World.”
