China’s Terracotta Warriors have travelled a long journey to Liverpool, United Kingdom! They will be shown in front of the public at the World Museum between 9th February and 28th October.

It is a great opportunity for people in the UK and around the world to know Chinese culture and its history.

Terracotta Army was discovered in 1974 in Xi’an city, Shanxi province, China. It was constructed to protect the afterlife of Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor. The army contains more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, and every figure is a different individual. It demonstrates the exceptional technique and artistic qualities of the Chinese sculpture in ancient time.
