Terracotta Warrior Stone Statue
The Terracotta Army is a collection of soldiers, chariots, etc. that were buried with Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. This sculpture is a re-creation of one of the 8,000 soldiers of the Terracotta Army. It has been handcrafted in reconstituted stone, a material that has been around for centuries, with an appearance almost identical to that of quarried stone. Unfortunately, this is terracotta in name only - it is not made from terracotta in any form. The finish pictured above is Cotswold Stone.
Specialist craftsmen have crafted this piece by hand to ensure that every sculpture is finished to a high standard. Reconstituted stone has been around for centuries but first became very popular in stately homes in the 16th century. In the 20th century the method of creating reconstituted stone improved so that it became possible to create sculptures that are even more durable and hard wearing.
