Catalogue Entry

In 1974, the terracotta army was unexpectedly discovered outside of Xi'an, China. The extensive tomb complex unearthed thousands of infantry soliders, including archers, armed warriors, and calvery men. All soliders were originally equipped with weapons, led by bronze charriots drawn by terracotta horses.


Terracotta Warrior (6) is a part of a small collection of terracotta replicas aquired by the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre. The terracotta warriors in the museum reflect the extensive number of sculptures, found at the tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. The tomb is estimated over 50 sq. km, making it the largest tomb site in China. The archeological site located at the Qin tomb is considered to be an eighth wonder of the world.


1974年,兵馬俑在中國西安郊外被意外發現。 龐大的墓葬群出土了數千名步兵,包括弓箭手、武裝戰士和騎兵。所有士兵都配備了武器,由兵馬俑牽引的青銅戰車帶領。


兵馬俑 (6) 是卡城中華文化中心獲得的一小部分兵馬俑複製品之一。博物館中的兵馬俑反映了中國第一位皇帝,秦始皇,墓中所發現的大量雕塑。該墓估計有50多平方公里,是中國最大的墓地。位於秦始皇陵的考古遺址被認為是世界第八大奇蹟。
