Our handmade Xian soldiers
Reproductions of Xian soldiers are very popular around the world. These mythical statues can indeed serve as decoration in Asian and Western homes. Throughout the world, temporary exhibitions have been held, notably at the British Museum, to present the Terracotta Army and other objects from the mausoleum of the first Chinese emperor.
The peculiarity of these Xian soldiers is that they were made life-size. None of their faces are identical, and their uniforms, sizes and haircuts are different depending on their rank in the military. There are infantrymen, horsemen, tank drivers, spearmen, archers, generals and other officers.
Our Xian soldiers are beautiful reproductions handmade by specialized Chinese artisans. They are faithful to the originals, even if they are smaller because they are intended for interior decoration. We offer several models that represent the different corps of the army of the emperor. They sport bright colors, a modern look, and are covered with two layers of acrylic paint. These soldiers are traditionally made in a workshop next to the city of Xian. We tried to give a modern and especially unique side to the soldiers.
