Terra-cotta Warrior Is Alive !

Terra-cotta WarriorMany of us have seen someone posting as a statue in the movies to avoid being spotted by the enemy. But in China, a German tourist was so obsessed with the Terracotta Army that he put on a self-made Qin soldier uniform and jumped into the burial pit consisting of Terracotta Army. As he stayed still and was well camouflaged, a number of tourists and security staff could not even spot him. Even when he was later being approached by the security staff and a translator, he continued to stay still and refused to respond to them. Left with no choice, the security personnel finally lifted the fake terra-cotta warrior out the burial pit.

So I guess certain scenes in the movies do happen in real-life, right?

From Wikipedia:
The Terracotta Army or Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses is a collection of 8,099 life-size terra cotta figures of warriors and horses located near the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. Each figure is life-like and life-sized and they vary in height, uniform and hairstyle in accordance with rank. The colored lacquer finish, molded faces (each is individual), and real weapons and armor used in manufacturing these figures creates a realistic appearance and stands as a testament to the amount of labor and skill involved in their construction. It is also proof of the incredible amount of power the First Emperor possessed to order such a monumental undertaking as the manufacturing of the Terracotta Army.
