Terracotta Warriors

On the campus of Troy University, in Janice Hawkins Cultural Art Park, are 200 massive Terracotta Warriors. They are on permanent display there. There is also a museum on campus. It is a huge collection.

[Vanessa Dean, 06/10/2020]

The warriors were created by the late Huo Bao Zhu; it's the largest display outside of China. Also outdoors is the Wounded Peace Dove, a giant bird with a bloody head sculpted by Fred "Nall" Hollis. The university calls it "a symbol of both beauty and sorrow." Nall is a famous Troy alumnus.
