    Help in finding source for terracotta warriors

    I have started purchasing Chinese stone carvings and terracotta for landscaping my new property. I recently heard about the terracotta warriors from Xian China. Does anyone know a website that sells high quality authentic warriors from Xian that I could purchase for my garden?

    Authentic terracotta warriors for your garden?

    I have a feeling that they belong in museums...

    The soldiers are still in the tomb. Incidently I saw a programme not long ago about the tomb. In myth there is supposed to be rivers of mercury around the emporers casket. Recent tests on the soil show hign concentrations of mercury in the soil, so it looks like there were rivers round his casket.

    Some have apparently been excavated by this point to undergo the whole tour thing though. I saw them last at the Edo-Tokyo Museum two months ago and I believe that exhibition is still going on.

    We toured the excavated tomb complex in Xian last year on vacation there,an extraordinary archaeological site indeed.

    As souvenir,we bought a gift box set of detailedly quality handi-work reproduction miniature terracotta warriors in size of 10" in height.

    There was display exhibition of authentic life sized Qin Dysnaty's historical Terra Cotta Warriors toured major US metropolitan cities back in the late 1990's.

    One US department store chain one time had replica life sized ( stood @ 6' in height ) on sale for several thousand US dollars each.
