If you've been keeping an eye on the NGV's programming, you'll know that the gallery's currently playing host to Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality: a major collection of ancient Chinese statues crafted between 221–206 BCE. And the figures are such a big deal, they've even inspired an unlikely themed high tea, happening at the Sofitel Melbourne in collaboration with the team at Dulux.

Here, you can have a crack at painting (and eating) your own mini terracotta warriors, bringing chocolate figurines to life with some artistic flair, a paintbrush and a rainbow of edible Dulux paints. There'll be fountains of the stuff, pouring vibrant colours including Midas Touch, Mint Twist, Symphony Red and China White.

To match, Sofitel pastry chef David Hann is whipping up an Asian-accented high tea buffet of sweet and savoury bites, from steamed pork buns to crispy wontons with chocolate, ginger and pineapple.

The arty high tea will set you back $99, including a glass of bubbly and unlimited tea and coffee. An extra $19 will get you free-flowing sparkling wine.

The Sofitel x Dulux Terracotta Warrior High Tea is happening in Sofi's Lounge every Saturday and Sunday at 2.30pm between May 25–October 13. The NGV International's Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality exhibition runs from May 24–October 13.
