San Francisco is lucky enough to have the Terracotta Warrior’s visiting the Asian Art Museum for the next couple of months. I never thought I would have the opportunity to see them in person and I am so thankful I did, they are magnificent!
(The beginning of the exhibit has artifacts that are over 2,000 years old!)
(These are some bells that horses would wear around their necks)
(This helmet is made up of 80+ carefully carved limestone tiles)
(Each Warrior was life-size, they say there are close to 6,000 in total!)
(There are even life-size horses, helping the First Emperor in his afterlife)
(Each piece was carefully painted before they were buried. Now, all that is left is the amber color of the terracotta but I still find them beautiful)
To find out more about how you can experience this special exhibit and learn more about the Qin Dynasty, China’s First Emperor, and the amazing Terracotta Warriors go here!
