Terracotta Warriors and Horses

Meet the life-sized warriors and horses at Museum of Emperor Qin Shihuang’s Terracotta Warriors and Horses

In 1974, a group of farmers in Xi’an stumbled across three long-forgotten pits of statues. Little did they realize they were unearthing the greatest archaeological find of the 20th century. The Terracotta Army, as it’s now known, is an astonishing collection of around 6,000 life-size figures of warriors, chariots and war horses, all dating back more than two millennium. Their principal function was to ‘guard’ the emperor in the afterlife.
