About China’s Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor’s Legacy Exhibit (February 22-May 27, 2013)
First unearthed in 1974, the underground burial complex of China’s unifying First Emperor Qin Shihuang (259-210 BCE) is a revelation for the ages as an astonishing discovery on par with Egypt’s mummies and tombs. China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy
features more than 120 rare artifacts from the enormous tomb complex of China’s First Emperor (259–210 BCE) and early Qin dynasty burial chambers. Highlights include ten life-size terracotta figures—the maximum number permitted outside China in a single exhibition—plus several newly discovered artifacts, from bronze weapons, sculptures of waterfowl, and a ceremonial limestone suit of armor to tiny gold figurines. Together, the objects provide an evocative picture of the First Emperor’s rise to power and his quest for immortality.
