Unlike Qin terracotta, Han Dynasty pottery figurine/ sculptures convey a more subdued and non-aggressive look. The figurines are clothed with bright pigments of red, blue, green and black. The proportion and the expression are a good combination of abstract and realism. This type of figurine was first excavated in Yang Jia Wan village of Xian in 1974. These figurines represent the foot soldiers of early part of Western Han period.
