Approximately 2,200 years ago, Qin Shi Huang appointed himself as China’s first emperor and established a unified dynasty on the Chinese mainland. “The Terracotta Army,” which was buried underground in great quantities in the vicinity of his vast mausoleum, was one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. Since its first excavation in 1974, new and astonishing findings have been made one after the other.
This exhibition, taking into consideration the latest findings from excavations, will display precious cultural assets related to Qin Shi Huang in one sweep. It aims to show the overwhelming vigor of the terracotta warriors and horses, which show great variety, and that of other works which only a person with absolute power could create. The exhibition also attempts to uncover the mystery of the “eternal world” that Qin Shi Huang constructed on an unprecedented scale around his mausoleum, and which extended underground.
