LONE WARRIOR

Terracotta warrior, Xi'an, China

Xi'an, one of the oldest cities in China, is home to the Terracotta Army (兵马俑) also known as the Terracotta Warriors and Horses. This collection of terracotta sculptures depicts the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of China. The unearthed figures, dating from 210 BC, represent only a small portion of the eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the tomb of the First Qin Emperor (秦始皇) to defend him in the afterlife. The craftsmanship attested by each of the statues is as stupendous as the scale of the project. The terracotta army figures were manufactured in workshops by government laborers and by local craftsmen. The head, arms, legs and torsos were created separately and then assembled. Studies show that eight face moulds were most likely used, and then clay was added to provide individual facial features. Once assembled, intricate features such as facial expressions were added. Upon completion, the terracotta figures were placed in the pits in precise military formation according to rank and duty. The terracotta figures are life-sized. They vary in height, uniform and hairstyle in accordance with rank. The coloured lacquer finish, individual facial features, and actual weapons and armor from battle used in manufacturing these figures created a realistic appearance. Robbers stole the original weapons shortly after the creation of the army and the colouring has faded greatly.

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The print has an additional 6cm white border around the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

FRAMED PRINT

A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is for the image itself - the border and frame add approximately 10cm to each side of the print (ie 20cm additional length in total).
