A terra-cotta horseman is crafted from clay and fired into ceramic, and is usually sculpted to resemble an armored human horseman, although terra-cotta horsemen resembling other races, such as hobgoblins, tengus, or even demons and oni, are also common. Terra-cotta horsemen are often created to guard the tomb of powerful rulers, standing in silent ranks to guard their liege even after his or her death. These horsemen stand vigil for centuries, animating only to defend the tomb and its riches from tomb robbers. Terra-cotta horsemen are typically painted with colored lacquer, though this decoration is often worn away from use or faded with age.
