At The Field | Terracotta Warriors

"China's First Emperor and His Terracotta Warriors will be displayed at Chicago's Field Museum," New China TV reports. "Ten of the Emperor's famed terra cotta figures have made the long journey from Xi'an to Chicago, along with 171 other artifacts on loan from 14 different museums in China."

From the Field:

"Stand among larger-than-life soldiers in The Field Museum's newest exhibition, China's First Emperor and His Terracotta Warriors.

"Tasked to guard Qin Shihuangdi's tomb for eternity, archers, infantrymen, and armored officers hold watch over a striking underground model of China's first empire.

"Explore the life of the ruler who vanquished his rivals, unified China's many warring states, constructed the first Great Wall, built roads throughout his vast territory, and standardized China's script, currency, weights, and measures.

"Learn about his desire to reign over the universe and his obsession with immortality.

"See priceless treasures from one of the world's greatest archaeological discoveries, including the fierce warriors that are so revered The Field Museum is the only place in North America they can be seen this year."

National Geographic: "It was a dazzling spectacle: a life-size army of painted clay soldiers buried to guard an emperor's tomb. Now archaeologists and artists, armed with the latest tools and techniques, are bringing that ancient vision back to life."
