The ultimate jigsaw puzzle

To grasp of the magnitude of the terracotta warriors in Xian you have to look at both the overall installation (the picture below is one of at least three areas).

and close up. There are many different figures with different hair styles, facial features and positions…and they were all painted. The number of craftsmen who worked on it must have rivaled the size of an army!

Putting it all together in the first place was an amazing feat. Rebuilding it is even more of one.

Crafts people are still working on it now, rebuilding the figures for future generations to appreciate. It has to be the ultimate jigsaw puzzle.
