New recruit for terracotta army
A German art student posed as one of China's famed Terracotta Warriors in the world heritage site at Xian where they are on display.
Pablo Wendel, 26, sneaked into a pit housing about 2,000 of the ancient life-size pottery warriors and horses, put on the military costume he had made himself and took up a position on a small pedestal he had taken along.
He stood there, motionless and unblinking, for a couple of minutes until police found him.
Wendel had his costume confiscated and was sent back to the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou, where he is studying performance art.
