Ancient warriors


January 11, 1996|By John Dorsey

From 1979 to 1984, Chinese sculptor Hou Rong worked at the site of the 210 B.C. grave of Chinese emperor Ch'in Shih Huang Ti, where an army of 6,000 terra cotta warriors and horses was discovered in 1974. The sculptor, who made numerous reproductions of the figures, is now in this country, working at Towson State University toward his master of fine arts degree. One of his life-size reproductions of a warrior is currently on view at the Folk Art Gallery, along with other contemporary works. Also featured are Russian Luboks, hand-printed and colored woodblock prints from 17th-, 18th- and 19th-century designs, and Japanese prints of the 18th and 19th centuries.

At the Folk Art Gallery, 1500 Bolton St., through Jan. 31. 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Call (410) 669-3343.
