Project description: Terracotta Daughters 

With her Terracotta Daughters installation, French New York-based artist Prune Nourry reflects upon the traditional preference for sons in China. Taking inspiration from the famous terracotta warriors discovered in Xi’an, Nourry worked with Chinese craftsmen to manufacture her own army — 108 unique, life-size Terracotta Daughters modeled on eight young country girls (Haoping, Pan, Huiyun, Yindi, Yue, Ruixia, Lizhou and Jianwei).

Description of the artwork:

In these headshots, the eight original Terracotta Daughters seem to leap straight off the paper on which they are printed. Working closely with the experts at Idem fine art printing studio, Nourry has crafted a vivid series of lithographs, using starkly contrasting shades of ink to convey the three-dimensionality of the original sculptures.
