They are amazing, especially when you are in the hall and see them all lined up in the huge excavation pit, which I did many years ago. I believe the ones above were holding wooden flag poles at one time, correct? I like this shot, as it shows how each is quite different from the next, and for 'warriors' they have a very wise and peaceful expression. Good job, Jim! :)

I know this picture from some film, and it is very interesting sceene - so interesting that it bings dramatic moment with first look on them.
