Now moved to a new setting, these foot-tall Han dynasty soldiers look like they would attack the famous large Qin dynasty terracotta warriers by stabbing their shin foot bones because of their small stature. Not as finely carved and probably not as individualized, the explanation is that the skilled craftsmen from the Qin soldiers were killed so that their skills were not passed on. Regardless, the hundred or so of these little guys were an amazing site. Too bad hardly any visitors to the famous soldiers come to see these of a later, but still very old, era.
