Ancient Terracotta Warriors as Pop-Culture Icons

In a light-hearted take on ancient artwork, this terracotta army is made using characters as stoic heroes. San Francisco-based artist Lizabeth Eva Rossof designed the army and hired an authentic terracotta-warrior replicator to manufacture the figures. Rossof’s sculptures are comprised of the same materials as the iconic army guarding the tomb of China’s first emperor in Xi’an.

This authenticity makes the warriors look more ‘authentic’. General Mickey stands at attention with an eager grin. Emperor Shrek, wearing dragon-embellished robes, extends his hand in a royal gesture.
