Replicating Terracotta Warriors

Last summer while doing a research visit at the Terracotta Warrior Museum in Xi’an and some associated tourist sights, I noted the proliferation of images and reproductions of the warriors. In this collection of images can you spot the “real” from the reproduced? Of course this is a trick question, because even the “real” warriors have been pieced together from fragmented remains! (This post is also a test of the photo-posting function on posterous.)
