The Terracotta Army in Xi'an is truly a miracle that must be seen to be believed

One of the must-visit attractions in Xi'an | Terracotta Army✅ Introduction to the scenic area: The Terracotta Army in Xi'an is truly a miracle that must be seen to be believed. The burial pits of the Terracotta Army of the Mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang are arranged from west to east in a pin-shaped pattern. The first pit discovered was Pit No. 1, which is rectangular and was found by farmers while digging a well. It contains more than 8,000 terracotta soldiers and horses, with sloped entrances on all sides. To the left and right of Pit No. 1 are two other terracotta pits, known as Pit No. 2 and Pit No. 3, which were scientifically discovered by archaeologists through drilling. The terracotta figures are rich and vividly depict a variety of characters with distinct personalities. Their style is robust and refined, full of moving artistic charm, and is a sign that the art of sculpture in ancient China had reached maturity. They not only inherit the pottery sculpture tradition of China since the Warring States period but also laid the foundation for the prosperity of sculpture art in the Tang Dynasty, playing a bridging role. It is hailed as 'the Eighth Wonder of the World' and 'a precious treasure of ancient human civilization'. Included in the UNESCO 'World Heritage List' About the Terracotta Army: The original colors of the Terracotta Army were colorful, with various colors including vermilion, sky blue, and lavender. However, due to the passage of time, most of the colors have faded away, and the remaining painted terracotta figures quickly oxidize and lose their color when exposed to air, turning into a terracotta color. In order to restore the Terracotta Army, archaeologists carefully excavate, patiently restore, and piece together, and it takes a long time for us to see this magnificent and majestic terracotta army formation that shocks the world! The Prime Minister of the Qin Dynasty, Li Si, was the unimaginable designer of this terracotta army tomb pit, marveling at the wisdom of the ancients! Using a phrase from the National Treasures: 'Though the terracotta soldiers are nameless, they have a thousand faces. With their flesh and blood, they secure peace for the land and protect the vast rivers and mountains. How can they be nameless? The rivers and mountains are their names.'
