The fifth Han emperor, Jingdi (r. 180 - 157 BCE), was considered a paragon of the effective rule, personal frugality, and Confucian virtue. His reign was a period of order, strong central government, and stability. His tomb compound is located north of the Wei River in a line of the Han imperial tombs.A complex just south of Jingdi's burial mound is more than five time larger than that of the Qin terra cotta warriors. Twenty-four pits there contained more than 40,000 clay figures, one-third life size. Their smiling faces contrast with the sterner features of the Qin soldiers. These soldiers originally had movable arms and wore silk and hemp clothing.
