Sworded General

Xi'an Tarracottta Army

4. Sworded General Front View

There are three kinds of highest ranking officers which total less than 10 in the current excavation. They are differentiated by their clothing and hand gestures. Sworded Generals are among them. Our replica is an exactly copy of the general who was found beside his chariot at the rear left of his troop in Pit 2. The general wears his gorgeous crest decorated with feather of an ancient bird good at fighting, and double layer campaign gown with armor on his chest, shoulder and back decorated with tassels, symbolizing his highest rank and prestige. The general, sticking a sword against the ground and smiling with confidence, has a sturdy constitution showing his grandeur.
