Terracotta Daughters by French artist Prune Nourry

Terracotta Daughters is the profound work of French artist Prune Nourry. Over one hundred clay Chinese Schoolgirls imitating the famous archeological discovery of the Terracotta Soldiers of Xi’an are on display with Gallery Magda Danysz in Shanghai.

Prune’s ambitious sculptural work contemplates China’s female social status, as well as it’s infamous one-child policy, symbolizing millions of missing women. The Terracotta Daughters exhibition was made in collaboration with Chinese craftsmen who practice ancient molding techniques, identical to the production of the original iconic Terracotta Soldiers.
