Many bus tours to the Terracotta Warriors in Xian, stop off at a factory first, that shows how the statues were moulded & sculpted. Taken outdoors, at the entrance to one of these foundries.
The gaps in the hands, are for later placement of things like spears & reins, for the horses. It looks like the Chinese landscapers, & builders, could take lessons in spray-painting!

good view on both unprepared for their job, but ready for being armed. Seems to be difficult light there, but well done.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Olá Chris, indeed, they need some color. This is almost a b&w picture. On the other hand, they may have a better dramatic effect like this...a huge army that looks a bit like ghosts can be more impressive and frightening. I like the dust effect on them. Excellent double portrait.

It happens I wonder how many hours of man labour that was put into the creation of the Terracotta Army..!
But at least they created something for the future...
This is a fine double portrait, showing the details well!

This has been one of the greatest archeological findings and is drawing crowds to Xian. You show a pair so nicely here to show the details. A bunch of them will be distractive. Nice shot.
