Terracotta Army Of Peace In Santa Cruz

The ill informed often bemoan the lack of culture and art in Tenerife but the truth is the island likes to celebrate not only it’s home grown works but also large international works. La Mujer de Terracota (Woman of Terracotta) is a “female army of peace” created by renowned sculptor Marian Heyerdahl that has reached across the world from the shadow of the iconic 210 BC Terracotta Army created for Emperor of China Qin Shi Huang at Shaanxi province.
