Resembling the Terra Cotta warriors unearthed by archaeologists in China, the big-scale art installation, dubbed 10,000, by Brooklyn-based artist Francis Hollenkamp that has been displayed to the public in FiveMyles Gallery and LIU Humanities Gallery, sees the artist painstakingly arranging and positioning his 10,000 tiny olive and dark green-colored plastic toy soldiers into rows and columns.

From far, the massive installation piece certainly looks like they are made of domino chips. Francis Hollenkamp shares with the viewers that he came up with the 10,000 installation, "in an attempt to visually explore notions of numbers, identity, and scale, particularly as these concepts relate to how we perceive and act in the everyday world."
