Terracota Statue

Workers digging a well outside the city of Xi'an, China, in 1974 struck upon one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the world: a life-size clay soldier poised for battle.
The legions of terra-cotta warriors in the famed tomb of Chinese Emperor Qin were originally painted with pigments and a layer of lacquer. Time and the stresses of excavation, though, have left most of the statues colorless.
