THE TERRACOTTA ARMY

One of the greatest archaeological revelations of all time, the Terracotta Army is a collection of life-sized terracotta sculptures buried under a 76 meter tall tomb- mound in the shape of a truncated pyramid.

The soldiers represent the army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang (259BC - 210BC) and were placed there to protect the Emperor in his afterlife.

It is said that the work on the mausoleum lasted over 38 years and started in 246 BCE soon after 13-year old Emperor Qin ascended the throne, with up to 700,000 workers working on the site.

This "spirit" army was discovered by a group of local farmers on 29 March 1974 in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, China, while digging a well.

Qin Shi Huang Di (260–210 BC) conquered six other major Warring States and united them to a unified China, became First Emperor of China in 221 BC and built the first Great Wall.

The main part of the Terracotta Army is arranged in three giant pits, containing more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots and 670 horses, which form part of a much larger necropolis that is estimated to measure approximately 98 square kilometers. It is said that each soldier's face is unique.

In 1987, the mausoleum, including the Terracotta Soldiers, was listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site.

The Terracotta Army pipes have been created and manufactured as limited edition pipes inspired by one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time and to celebrate the mausoleum and the Terracotta Soldiers receiving World Heritage status 30 years ago.

The Terracotta Soldier pipes are a classic Bent shape in Group 5 (5102). Fitted with an engraved precious metal band, each pipe is accompanied by an impressive solid Sterling Silver tamper depicting in finest detail one of the Emperor’s Generals found at the site.

The highly collectable Terracotta Army pipes & tampers are presented in a prestigious leather bound book and come with a numbered and hand-signed limited edition certificate.
