rgogopin: Site 2801: A Thought-Provoking Statement by Sacramento Artist Gong Yuebin. In ‘Site 2801,’ 200 terracotta warriors based on models of those commissioned by China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, are displayed rank by rank, having been ‘unearthed’ in a site that not only includes historical warriors, but additional modern combat troops and nuclear missiles. Inherent in the display is the artist’s consternation about the apparent lack of progress in thousands of years of human evolution
