China Treasures in New York Episode 03: Terracotta Warriors and Bronze Chariots

Among the 160 ancient Chinese works of art being featured at the MET’s 2017 landmark exhibition Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 B.C.– A.D. 220, the most remarkable pieces are probably the 5 life size terracotta warriors and replicas of two half-life size bronze chariot teams that were excavated from the mausoleum of the first Qin emperor.

Together the spectacular group of works on display demonstrates Qin dynasty’s formidable military power, as well as its incredible infrastructure system and industry development.
