Six thousand of the terracotta soldiers comprised what was, in my opinion, the most striking exhibit at the park, a 1:3 scale version of Emperor Qin's lifesize terracotta army discovered in China in 1974.
To get a sense of the display's size, note the bluish figure in the far distance, which is a larger-than-life statue of Emperor Qin.
