Catalogue Entry

The Terracotta Warriors are a collection of clay sculptures portraying the extensive militant army of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. The Terracotta Warriors are a form of funerary art, meaning they are artworks buried as a part of a ritutalistic rite, protecting the emperor in his afterlife. The warriors serve as representations of the brave soldiers that were once enlisted peasants and developed into one of the most sophisticated armies in Chinese history.


The Terracotta Warriors are a significant archeological embodiment of Chinese culture and history. During his reign in the Qin dynasty (221-206 BC), Emperor Qin Shi Huang Di ordered the production of over 7,000 terracotta soldiers to surround his tomb. 


兵馬俑是一系列的泥塑,描繪了中國第一位皇帝秦始皇的龐大軍事軍隊。兵馬俑其實是一種喪葬藝術,這意味著它們是作為祭祀儀式的一部分而埋葬的藝術品,用於保護皇帝的往生。這些兵馬俑代表了曾經被徵召入伍的農民,並發展成為中國歷史上最先進的軍隊之一。


兵馬俑是中國文化和歷史的重要考古發現。秦始皇在位期間 (公元前 221-206 年),下令工匠製作7000多名兵馬俑去圍繞他的墳墓。
