    Default Terracotta Warriors Exhibition

    Some photos from this afternoon trip to Asian Civilisations Museum.

    Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor and His Legacy
    24 Jun 2011 - 16 Oct 2011
    @ Special Exhibitions Gallery, ACM Empress Place

    The terracotta army buried near the tomb of the First Emperor of China is perhaps the most important archaeological discovery of our time. Unearthed in 1974 outside Xi’an, the thousands of pottery soldiers and horses are striking works of art that tell us a great deal about early China.

    This exhibition features one hundred artefacts from Shaanxi province in China. Besides terracotta figures, the display contains important bronzes and jades from the Qin state before the time of the First Emperor, Shi Huangdi. The Han dynasty inherited the legacy of unified China, and charming terracotta figures from this later period show how the First Emperor’s tomb influenced later burials.

    The exhibition highlights new interpretations and poses questions about what we really know of the remarkable terracotta army. Recent excavations have revealed a variety of objects, including painted warriors, acrobats meant to entertain the emperor, chariots and life-like birds. Many of these will be presented in the exhibition.

    This is the first exhibition of the actual terracotta warriors to be held in Singapore, as well as the first presentation in Southeast Asia.

    This exhibition is organised by the Asian Civilisations Museum, in partnership with the Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Relics Bureau and the Shaanxi Cultural Heritage Promotion Centre, People’s Republic of China.

    Hope you like it. Exactly two things I'm concerned over such shots, exposure and composition.

    Have a great shoot and share your photos too.

    Nice pictures. I think they are well taken.

    Is photography allowed? I thought the flash is strictly forbidden.
    MF Film user. Nikon D800 works too.

    Thanks for your kind comment. All the shots taken are without flash.

    Photography is allowed. Flash photography is not allowed as they want to preserve these artifacts.
