Production Process of Terra-Cotta Warrior Replica
A combination of molding and sculpturing were employed to fashion the terra-cotta figurines in the Qin Mausoleum.Traditional sculpturing methods used included layering, pinching, pasting, carving and painting. Long strips of clay were layered to form the rough outline of the body, with the pasting, pinching and carving methods employed to add robes and armor. Fashioning heads represented a comparatively complicated process. Facial features were achieved using a mold, with piling and sculpting used to form the back of the head. Ears were pasted to the heads prior to adding sculpted or molded hair buns. Refinements such as eyes, eyebrows, mouths, mustaches and ears were carefully carved to reveal the desired personality for the figurine.

Anyway, as I know, they cannot be preserved for a long time, because they are made by earth and clay. If u really love that, you may consider buying another one from China!
