Site 2801 includes 200 terra cotta soldiers, 10 contemporary soldiers, four nuclear weapons, and
four infant babies (fiberglass) in four sections.
The 210 soldiers utilized clay from the ancient site in Lishan Mountain Xi An China, where the famous 2,000 year-old terra cotta warriors were excavated from the first Chinese emperor Qin Shihuang’s tomb.
The terracotta soldiers were proportioned to match that of the ancient tombs; approximately 4- feet high.
The clay was fired at 1,800 degrees with a silt finish replicating the original ancient style as in the Emperor’s tomb 2,000 years ago.
The nuclear bombs and babies are made of fiberglass with a similar finishing procedure. The nuclear bombs measure 2-feet in diameter by 12-feet long.
This installation can be based on the existing environment, and can include forms such as squares, lines, or circles. It also can work with white maze or white flower petal.
The set up is very flexible and can be adapted to any space to suit the needs of your institution and its policies/preferences.
