Terracotta art student

German art student Pablo Wendel fooled Chinese authorities briefly when he posed as one of Xi'an's famed terra cotta warriors. Dressed as one of the 2000-year- old figures (including a small pedestal on which he stood, "a gown and hat, identical to those once worn by Emperor Qinshihuang's warriors"), Wendel was eventually caught by police and his constume was confiscated. He was sent back to Hangzhou, where he's been studying.

"I have always dreamed of disguising myself as a terracotta warrior among the real ones," he said.
