I saw the terra cotta warriors in 1983 when just a few of them had been excavated. The uniforms are all different, as are the faces. Some of the faces looked western. I guessed Turkish at the time. They are amazing.

Of course they were painted in bright colors at the time they were buried. There were a few of them where the paint had been restored when I viewed them in 1983.

Sounds great! If they were painted, that would fit the Greek and Roman way of sculpture.

I think a new batch was found in an adjacent area, not that many years ago.
