ART & CULTURE — Nearly half a century ago, archaeologists unearthed an army of around 7000 terracotta warriors, each bearing its own unique appearance. Rows upon rows of life-sized soldiers, these statues guarded what is believed to be the tomb of Qin Shi Huang — the first emperor of China from over two thousand years in the past. An expression of the life of QIn Shi Huang, as well as the results of his rule and his approach to everlasting life, these terracotta sculptures have long fascinated avid archaeology fans from across the globe. Today, you no longer need to travel too far to marvel at these ancient findings, as four of the magnificent statues — along with ancient weapons, a chariot, inscriptions and pottery — can be found at the Bangkok National Museum.
Until December 15, 2019. Siwamokkhaphiman Throne Hall, Bangkok National Museum. To find out more, visit the official Facebook page.
