An undated file photo shows terra-cotta horses and warriors unearthed from the tomb of Emperor Qin Shihuang (259-210 B.C.), about 35 km from Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province. Famous as the "world's eighth wonder," the terra-cotta worriers were found east to Emperor Qin Shihuang's tomb. The Qin Shihuang Terra-cotta Warriors and Chariots Museum established at the site in 1979 houses 8,000 life-size terra-cotta warriors and horses made in Qin Dynasty (221-207 BC). They were put on the World Cultural Heritage list in 1987.
