The Terracotta Army Museum

The Terracotta Army Museum is divided into three pits. After going inside, keep in mind that don’t take photos with the terracotta warriors, the tour guide will tell you that after all it is a funerary, and it is a bit suffocating.

The Terracotta Warriors developed today are only three over ten thousand of that very year.

The first pit is the largest of the three pits. The tour guide will also tell you that the terracotta warriors here are all single eyelids. It is said that Qin Shihuang thought that the people with double eyelids are more serious. If you want to be a high official, you can’t be double eyelids. But Qin Shihuang himself is a person with double eyelids.

The head and body of each terracotta warrior are separated, and the high collar is used to cover the gap between the joints.

All the terracotta warriors are higher than the actual height of the Qin Dynasty soldiers. The people in the Qin Dynasty are generally around 160-170CM high, while the terracotta warriors are generally above 172cm. The reason is that Qin Shihuang wanted to create a feeling of grandeur.

There is no large-scale excavation in the No. 2 pit, and it is also a soil slope. There is a cabinet in the back showing the typical terracotta figures. The wrinkles of the collar, the elaboration of the beard and the eyebrows, all show the fineness of the sculptor. The hair is particularly clear, the contours of the ears, the eyes are engraved, the lines of the nails and the palms are all there, the waistband of the hemp rope, and the print of the soles, also are showing the meticulousness and difficulty of the carving.

The third pit is the command post, and the right is the place where divination is. You can find some tassels for divination and the place where the ancient prayer war was won.

Tickets: 150 Yuan/person for terracotta warriors, and people under 16 years old or above 70 years old is free of charge.
