A True Warrior Doppelganger

In addition to being the presumptive Rookie of the Year, the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose has had a phenomenal first season playing as like a well-heeled veteran, and showing poise and maturity on the court. Featuring devastating quickness, a light touch on his shot and a near endless supply of moves, Rose looks set to be a force in the NBA for years to come. Construction began in 246 BC on the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shi Huangdi the First Emperor of China; all told an estimated 700,000 workers were involved in the making of nearly 9,000 individual terracotta statues to be buried as protection for the Emperor. Legends held that the statues were real warriors who would come to life to protect their deceased leader. Discovered in 1974 when a farmer attempted to dig a well, there have since been extensive efforts to dig out and exhume the long-lost works of art.

Please VOTE in the poll below, your votes decide whether or not these doppelgangers move on to the PERMANENT doppelganger page, where you can check out the many we’ve already assembled.
