About The Event

More than 100 original pieces from the iconic Terracotta Army collection are on display in Alicante's MARQ archaeological museum. Titled The Legacy of the Qin and Han Dynasties, China – The Warriors of Xi’an, the exhibition will remain on show until 28 January 2024.

The collection of terracotta sculptures is a form of funerary art that depicts the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. It was buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE to guard his tomb and protect him in the after-life.

Considered one of the most significant discoveries in global archaeology, the collection was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987 and it has been described as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”.
