Terracotta Girls Represent an Army of Never Born Daughters


French artist Prune Nourry's Terracotta Daughters is an art installation echoing the Terracotta Army of ancient chinese warriors. The statues are of chinese girls and questions China's one child policy. They are the girls who never born due to China's cruel family policy resulting in selective female infanticide.

   Nourry's army of girls will travel the world and in 2015 they will retuen to their motherland. They will be buried and excavated in 2030, the year in which imbalanced sex ratio will reach the highest level.

  Currently the art installation is being displayed at Centquatre in Paris.
