But it seems someone else is pulling the strings.
That big terracotta guy staring down at you is a tad unnerving, but he'd have to break his strings to chase anyone down. He seems, perhaps, kindhearted, seeing as he's looking after the "little" one.
Apparently these giant marionettes were used in the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but now they are on display at the Terracotta Warrior excavation site museum, Lintong District, Xian, Shiaanxi Province, China. Keeping in mind that the perimeter stanchions are typically 37 to 40 inches tall, you get some idea of their size.
