Amazing Light sculptures "Lanterns of Terracotta Army" 
The Chinese New Year falls on January 31, and in Edinburgh, it is ushered with the Lanterns of Terracotta Army. They are 90 brightly colored, illuminated sculptures crafted by Chinese artist Xia Nan and are installed at the Edinburgh University Old College Quadrangle. 
Nan’s sculptures were inspired by the famous Terracotta Army, a collection of terracotta sculptures that were discovered in the tomb of the 3rd Century BC Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang in 1974. Within the massive 12,000 square-meter underground vault was an 8,000 warrior army ready to defend the emperor’s soul.
