Next stop was the Terracotta Warriors workshop where they repair and also reproduce replicas of the original warriors using the same clay and techniques. The final products from this workshop find there way into museums as well as private sale. Our guide took us through the mould area where the smaller terracotta warriors were being made from air dried clay. We then went into a showroom where Terracotta Warriors of various sizes were ...
