An unmissable display of China’s #terracottawarriors is ready to wow the public this 
weekend in #Wellington. 
The $2.6 million exhibition includes eight ancient Chinese soldiers, two full-size horses and more than 160 other Chinese artefacts. 
The underground army was discovered by chance in 1974, so far 3000 soldiers have 
been excavated. 
The warriors were buried to guard the tomb of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. "We estimate that 100,000 people will take this special opportunity to see the authentic terracotta warriors in person, generating an estimated $33 million 
economic benefit to Wellington," said Te Papa CEO Geraint Martin 
The exhibition will run from December 15 to April 22 next year.

I remember standing among Pompeii’s ruins and having goosebumps because it was such a powerful sight. The #terracottawarriors left me feeling exactly the same way. Three enormous hangars containing multiple pits - some with excavations still in progress - house rows of sculpted soldiers. The level of detail and individuality is astounding, and the features and expressions of the men are so realistic, it’s hard not to humanise them // #historylover #terracottaarmy #wondersoftheworld #mausoleum #excavations #archeology #history #chinesehistory #chinahistory #ancientchina #xian #china #instachina

Yayınevinin eski göz ağrıları Gizemler, Piramitlerin Sırrı, Bilinmeyenler çizgisinde bir atölye duyurumuz var. Atölye Bodrum’da. ⛩🕵️‍♂️⛩🗿🏯
Eser Okuma ve Üslup Tarihi Atölyesi
Sanat Tarihçi Orhan Meriç’le ikinci buluşmamızda arkeoloji dünyasının uzun zamandır araştırdığı, Çin imparatoru Qin Shi Huang'ın mezarında bulunan, M.Ö. 210 yılından kalan 8 bini aşkın toprak asker heykelin sırrını konuşacağız. Ölümden korktuğu için Ab-ı Hayat yaşam iksirinin peşine düşen ve Çin Seddi’nin temellerini atan çılgın bir imparator... Değerli mücevherleriyle diri diri mezar kompleksine gömülen cariyeler...
Mezar alanındaki Avrupalı DNA’larının sırrı ne? O tarihe kadar 20 cm’lik figürler yapabilen Çinli sanatçılar bir anda böylesine akıllara durgunluk veren bir pişmiş toprak heykel ordusunu nasıl yapabildi?
Ve 1974 yılında keşfedilmesine rağmen neden halen imparatorun asıl mezarı açılmıyor?

If you haven’t seen the Terracotta Army then you haven’t been to China, right? One of the eighth wonders of the world Pre-1900 creations, this was remarkable and truly fascinating to experience in person! •

The Terracotta Army is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE with the purpose of protecting the emperor in his afterlife. •

#TerracottaArmy #nationalgeographic #GenghisKhan .It makes you wonder, if the first emperor of China, Genghis Khan can build an entire army out of solid stone and clay, armors out of stone and clay to help him fight and become King in the after life then that says alot about his beliefs. He was a blood thirsty killing machine that overtook China 🇨🇳over time. Now in the present time Scientists and Geologists are gaining unpresidential access from Chinas military to access the tombs where the Terracotta Army is still standing strong today! Its amazing isnt it. Do you believe in the after life? #ilovenationalgeographic

В первом была выставка "под стеклом и на близком расстоянии", в которой и были представлены зомбокони и другие. А во втором уже сама армия. Кстати раскопки до сих пор ведутся.

Today we had the privilege of seeing the Terracotta Army. An absolute masterpiece. The photos really don't do it any justice. The second photo is of the kneeling archer. The only warrior of the 8,000 found completely intact.

Got to see the Terra-cotta Warriors and it was an amazing experience. It’s a UNESCO heritage site and some people also consider it to be the “8th wonder of the world”. Link to the vlog is in my bio😋

Nei pressi di Xi’an, prima capitale dell’impero cinese, si trova il più importante sito archeologico della Cina: una città funeraria che si estende ad oggi per oltre 2,5 km, con pareti in bronzo, profonda decine di metri ed attraversata da tre falde acquifere.
La città tombale venne scoperta per caso nel 1974 da un contadino che, dopo una violenta tempesta, vide affiorare dal terreno una delle opere d’arte in essa contenute.
È la camera mortuaria dell’imperatore Qin Shi Huang, noto per l’unificazione dell’impero cinese e per almeno due misteri che calano un velo di magia sulla leggenda: un immenso esercito di soldati di terracotta e una serie di fiumi di mercurio (considerato un attivatore energetico per l’immortalità).
La storia di Qin è raccontata in molti documenti: la sua tomba venne descritta dagli scrivani cinesi e, negli anni in cui gli scavi erano attivi, si riscontrò una precisione di dettagli maniacale.
Primogenito del re di Qin, con l’aiuto di un imponente esercito, riuscì ad unificare i sei indipendenti regni di Cina sotto il suo impero. Alla sua morte venne costruita una città sotterranea che si stima essere ampia 9 km; nelle sue caverne vennero seppelliti tesori, mezzi di trasporto, oggetti di uso quotidiano, cibo e concubine. Gli artigiani di corte decorarono la tomba dell’imperatore con perle e raffigurazioni di corpi celesti.
Il suo esercito venne riprodotto con statue di terracotta che furono messe a vigilare l’edificio e le camere furono circondate con fiumi di mercurio liquido.
Nel terreno della collina sono stati riscontrati livelli di mercurio superiori di 10 volte rispetto alla norma, cosa che mette in allarme chiunque sia dell’idea di aprire il sito e svuotarlo del suo contenuto.
Ad oggi sono state dissepolte costruzioni sotterranee, mausolei e circa 2.000 statue sulle oltre 10.000 esistenti stimate

The Terracotta Army is a collection of nearly 10,000 terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang Di 秦始皇帝,
the first Emperor of China. It is a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE with the purpose of protecting the emperor in his afterlife.

Did you know that as well as being the home of our Murger Xi'an is also the home of the terracotta army? In 1974 four brothers discovered the head of a solider when digging for Wells. Unaware of the importance of their discovery they tried to sell it at a local market where it was noticed by a policeman and reported to the government. 8000 terracotta soldiers were discovered. ✨

🇨🇳 We are the first Xi’an restaurant to open in London and specialists in regional Chinese cuisine from Xi'an City in the Shanxi Province.
.
🇬🇧Find us at 8A Sackville St in #MayfairW1S 3DF
.
⏰ Opening Hours: Sunday to Saturday from midday - 10pm
.
🍜 Our #Noodz - The chefs at Murger HanHan make fresh noodle dough every morning and upon ordering are hand-pulled into one entire noodle that is 8 feet long. This is then cooked with your ordered sauce, soup or topping chosen from the menu. All the noodles are made with wheat rather than rice as Shaanxi province does not harvest rice. Look out for the Extra Wide Noodles which are also hand-pulled but not split before cooking so are twice the width and half the length at 4 feet wide. There is one rice noodle dish served cold with sesame sauce. .
💁🏻‍♂️ Did You Know : The "Murger" - considered the Chinese equivalent to the Western hamburger and is probably the world's oldest sandwich or hamburger dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221 BC - 206 BC).
. 👨🏻‍🍳 Our Suggestions:
Pork Murger
Cold Rice Noodles with Sesame Sauce
BiangBiang Noodles with Pork, Spring Onion and Chilli Oil
Extra Wide Noodles with Tomato Egg and Garlic Dipping Sauce
Uncongelated Tofu (sounds strange but is absolutely delicious!)
Try the Xi’an Rice Wine - it is 0.5% alcohol and cloudy and quite floral and aromatic - interesting to try! .

Unaware of the importance of their discovery they tried to sell it at a local market where it was noticed by a policeman and reported to the government. 8000 terracotta soldiers were discovered. ✨ . Photo from @natgeo 📸 . 🇨🇳 We are the first Xi’an restaurant to open in London and specialists in regional Chinese cuisine from Xi'an City in the Shanxi Province. . 🇬🇧Find us at 8A Sackville St in #MayfairW1S  3DF . ⏰ Opening Hours: Sunday to Saturday from midday - 10pm . 🍜 Our #Noodz  - The chefs at Murger HanHan make fresh noodle dough every morning and upon ordering are hand-pulled into one entire noodle that is 8 feet long. This is then cooked with your ordered sauce, soup or topping chosen from the menu. All the noodles are made with wheat rather than rice as Shaanxi province does not harvest rice. Look out for the Extra Wide Noodles which are also hand-pulled but not split before cooking so are twice the width and half the length at 4 feet wide. There is one rice noodle dish served cold with sesame sauce. . 💁🏻‍♂️ Did You Know : The "Murger" - considered the Chinese equivalent to the Western hamburger and is probably the world's oldest sandwich or hamburger dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221 BC - 206 BC). . 👨🏻‍🍳 Our Suggestions: Pork Murger Cold Rice Noodles with Sesame Sauce BiangBiang Noodles with Pork, Spring Onion and Chilli Oil Extra Wide Noodles with Tomato Egg and Garlic Dipping Sauce Uncongelated Tofu (sounds strange but is absolutely delicious!) Try the Xi’an Rice Wine - it is 0.5% alcohol and cloudy and quite floral and aromatic - interesting to try! . #Xian  #MayfairRestaurants  #RegionalChinese  #LondonChinese  #LondonRestaurants  #LondonRestaurantScene  #XianTravels  #XianTravels  #TerracottaArmy

«Самых знаменитый город, о котором вы никогда не слышали», - пишет путеводитель. «И слава Богу», - думаю я. ⠀
⠀
Сиань, он же столица провинции Шэньси, своей трёх тысячелетней историей уж точно должен был меня покорить. Но, увы, химии с Сианем у нас не случилось. ⠀
⠀
Может быть, причиной тому стало ограниченное время, ведь на Сиань у нас был всего лишь один день. Так или иначе, это книгу я не прочла, поэтому сужу лишь по обложке..⠀
