Liu Fenghua & Liuyong

The Bing Ma Yong series (Terracotta Warrior and horse)

The Bing Ma Yong series (Terracotta Warrior and horse) started in 2004, as a result of a cultural project called "New terracotta Warriors". Instead of using canvas the artist couple paints on new terracotta statues.

The statues are as high as human beings, but also smaller statues are used.

In their art work there is a connection between the present and the past of China. The themes of the artworks are clearly the influences of China by the West. The artists ambition is to create a new terracotta army of about 6000 warriors. Watch out, the ninth world wonder is emerging.
