Terracotta Warriors

Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China’s First Emperor opens today at Discovery Times Square. A collection of terracotta sculptures was buried with Qin Shi Huang, Emperor of China in 210–209 BC, and found again in 1974 when a farmer chanced upon the first of what archaeologists estimate are 8,000 warriors and other figures. Its’s a small exhibit, tiny in comparison to the actual, only partially excavated site in China, but it might be your only chance to see these incredibly preserved terracotta warriors stateside.

  1. I had the chance of seeing these statues a couple of years ago in my country and they are amazing. I totally recommend going to this exhibit if you can. I hope you enjoy it too!
