Terra cotta warriors and horses come to Beijing for Olympics
The world-famous terra cotta warriors and horses, which were buried more than 2,200 years ago as the army guarding China's first emperor's afterlife, have come to Beijing for an exhibition ahead of the Olympics.
Set in the Capital Museum, the exhibition,"the memory of China: treasures along its 5,000-year civilization", is open to the public on Tuesday. It will run to October 7.
"It's the best greeting from the ancient country to the modern
Olympics," said Yao An, vice president of the Museum. The exhibition
was a long-time plan by the Chinese heritage system to welcome the
Olympics, said Yao.
