The Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, were created to be buried with the emperor more than 2000 years ago as a form of funerary art. Each statue would take over 400 man hours to make and with such meticulous details, no two are alike. There’s been thousands excavated since their discovery in 1974 and it’s believed there’s still much more to be found hidden in the emperor’s tomb. Such an amazing exhibit, go see it for yourself at the @franklininstitute
before it’s gone next week!
