China's Terracotta Warriors - ROM
If you get a chance catch this exhibition hosted by the Royal Ontario Museum(ROM), before it leaves in January.
It was quite extraordinary. I found the exhibit fascinating - the kneeling archer pictured is one of 300 or so found in the original pits. The curator Dr.Chen Shen and staff, provided an extensive background of information regarding the Qin army and Chinese history.
The actual pits were discovered accidentally near the tomb of the warrior emperor.
The photo is from the ROM website; which I acknowledge borrowing. More information is available at: http://www.rom.on.ca/terracottaarmy/en/
