The Great Sphinx and Egypt


The Museum of Qin Pottery Figures   The Museum of Qin Pottery Figure is some thirty kilometers east of Xi’an , capital of Shanxi Province. The museum includes the three underground vaults(墓穴) where life-size figures of warriors(武士)and chariots(战车)were discovered. Vault 1 was discovered by local peasants in 1974 . Built with earth and timber, it measures 210 meters long, 60 meters wide and 4.6 to 6.5 meters high . In this area of 12,600 square meters were found six thousand figures, life-size warriors and horses of terra-cotta. The soldiers are of a fairly uniform(统一的)height of 1.8 meters. Vault 2 and 3 containing warriors and wooden chariots were brought to light in 1976 . Unlike Vault 1, where the war chariots and foot soldiers are mixed, Vault 2 contains four separate units of chariots, cavalrymen(骑兵), archers(弓箭手)and foot soldiers. Again, the warriors carry real weapons. Vault 3 is a modest building more resembling a gallery. It has 69 pottery warriors with defensive weapons and a wooden chariot pulled by four magnificent pottery horses. A modern building has been built over Vault 1.The Museum, has received nearly a million visitors from other parts of China and about thirty thousand from other lands. The vaults of Qin Pottery Figures are honoured as the eighth wonder of the world. And in 1987 it was listed in Catologues of the World’s Legacy.
