The Terracotta Army

The Terracotta Army

There is a long history of 3000 years or more in China. A lot of cultural heritage exists along with it, too. Today I'd like to take up the Terracotta Army.

The Terracotta Army is in the ancient city of Xi'an. There is a very long history in Xi'an. And the city was once called "Chang'an" and prospered very much in old times.

The Terracotta Army is a lot of bronze statues and was made to defend the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty. Surprisingly, none of the bronze statues have the same face.

It is possible to see the high level of production technology that existed even then. I want to go there by all means if there is a chance.

Thanks for reading!
