Asian Civilisations Museum - Terracotta Warriors Exhibitions
This exhibition features one hundred artefacts from Shaanxi province in China. Besides terracotta figures, the display contains important bronzes and jades from the Qin state before the time of the First Emperor, Shi Huangdi. The Han dynasty inherited the legacy of unified China, and charming terracotta figures from this later period show how the First Emperor’s tomb influenced later burials. For more information you can view the official website.
Of course the exhibition is nothing compared to the actual site at Xian. But it is still worth visiting the exhibits.
The exhbition will ends 16th October 2011.
