The Terracotta Warriors

The Terracotta Army of China must be one of the most famous archaeological discoveries in the world.   Commissioned by the First Emperor Qin Shi Huang, it is said that no two soldiers were alike, and all were outfitted with real weapons. Discovered only in 1974, a small collection will be shown in the exhibit “The First Emperor: China’s entombed warriors” at the Art Gallery of NSW from now until mid next March.

When this collection was at the British Museum, the crowds were so great that people were turned away!  To deal with demand the gallery has extended hours on Wed and Sat nights.  So get in quick before tickets sell out!

Some of these photos were published in an article in The ONE Magazine, January 2011 Issue. The ONE is a Chinese & Japanese bilingual magazine with distribution in Sydney and Melbourne.
