The Great Terracotta Army of China’s First Emperor

National Museum of Art, Osaka


Emperor Qin Shi Huang, who established the first unified dynasty in China in 221 BC, created his own mausoleum and filled it with a Terracotta Army consisting of some 8,000 ceramic figures. By assembling the gems of these historical relics, which were discovered in 1974, this exhibition sets out to capture the ‘eternal world’ envisioned by China’s first emperor.
