Terra-cotta warrior figurines are seen to boster a bed mattress in an apartment in Xi'an City, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, March 15, 2011. Designed by the laid-off woman Zhang Shuanghua and her husband, a total of three apartments of this kind are adorned with 55 human-size terra-cotta warrior and numerous figurine replicas, the specialty of Xi'an City. The creative apartments have attracted a number of foreigners to lodge here, though Chinese tourists feel frightened to sleep in such a room. The Terra-cotta Army is a form of funerary art buried with the First Emperor of Qin in 210-209 B.C. (Xinhua/Chen Changqi)
