The Terracotta Warriors are the legacy of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. A massive burial complex – chambers filled with individualised castings of entire army divisions including horses, chariots and equipment. A mountain carved out with (what historians believe to be) a replica of the entire Middle Kingdom, with rivers of mercury. A pivital point in history, a glimpse into the past, the seed of a chain of empires, the foundation of a country.
It should be no surprise that this immense cultural heritage is taken very seriously.
