Great Reviews from Everywhere

Live Cheap and Make Art recently attended the exhibit, read about their thoughts here.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit at the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC this week. Unfortunately photography was not permitted within the exhibit, so all I have to show you are the banners that wrap around the building depicting the site where the warriors were found in China.

Farmers were plowing their fields when they came upon a terra cotta head and alerted the authorities who set about excavating the site. What they have found to date is only 1/6th of the entire site and includes 1,000 warriors, charioteers, archers, musicians, generals, acrobats, horses and more, buried nearly 2,000 years ago to protect the tomb of China’s first emperor Qin Shin Huangdi who conquered and unified the surrounding territories that eventually became the China we know today. He ruled from 246B.C. to 210 B.C
