In the park there are several thousand clay figures of humans and animals, buildings and miscellaneous items.


The park is situated on the territory, of a width of 60 and 300 meters long. All figures, whether human, animal or structure, made ​​of clay in the ratio of 2 / 3 of actual size.


The idea occurred to Qin in 2005, but щтдн  in 2008 he began to implement his project.  The opening of the park timed to the beginning of the Qingming Festival.  All this time he worked on the sculptures with two his assistants. The project was financed by the author.


Every detail of this unusual park carefully thought out. Here you can move freely across the street surrounded by clay figures, wrapping in the past... to the ancient  times  of the Zhang Zerui  Dynasty .
