The First Emperor's Terracotta army.

A thorougly fascinating exhibit about Qin Shi Huang's preparations for the afterlife. These cats (I mean the cats on which these cats were modeled) fought without body armour, for the most part. They did not have feet of clay. Ouch, that was bad. Anyway, some background, some Wiki and the High Art Museum.
