If you have an opportunity to do so, I highly recommend seeing the High Museum's Terracotta Army exhibit, which runs through April 19th, 2009. David and I saw it with a couple of friends on January 31st, and I thought it was very well presented.

I particularly enjoyed the way they connected smaller objects to larger ones to illustrate the exacting detail and realism replicated in each figure. For example, near a statue of a bureaucrat, they had artifacts that were associated with his job, and then pointed out the same objects shown on his belt. They also explained how different headpieces represented different military ranks, how the figures were produced, and so on. If you've seen Hero, this exhibit relates to that emperor.

I found it quite educational, and well worth the trip.
