China's Terracotta Warriors is one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of our time. It takes on a journey from the birth and rise of the Qin Empire to the life and rule of the First Emperor, his quest for immortality, and his death, burial, and complex legacy. The exhibition at the Asian Art Museum features 120 rare objects - including 10 terracotta figures.
