Terracotta Warrior

The picture you see on the right is a terracotta warrior. These warriors were created around 200 BC and were discovered on 29 March 1974 in China. I have made one of my own with golden clay!

I used sculpting clay that almost never softens but is moldable. In making it I had to knead it for 10 minutes and then roll a ball for the head 2 cylinders for legs 1 long one for both arms a box for the body and a square for making a skirt. After that I started joining the pieces and started making the face, lining the armor, and the hands. After that I don't know how but I was satisfied with myself.
