Discovered in 1974 in China’s Shaanxi province, one of the greatest archaeological finds of the twentieth century and often described as the eighth wonder of the world, The Terracotta Warriors have arrived in Melbourne apart of the National Gallery of Victoria's Winter Masterpieces series.
The Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality is a large-scale presentation of the Qin Emperor’s Terracotta Warriors, The exhibition features eight warrior figures and two life-size horses from the Imperial Army, as well as two half-size replica bronze chariots, each drawn by four horses.
Alongside the Warriors visitors will find world exclusive pieces from one of China's best contemporary artists in Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape. Inspired by Chinese culture and traditions, Cai Guo-Qiang is well known for his use of traditional Chinese materials, paper, porcelain and silk to gunpowder in many of his works.
Be blown away by the new art works inspired by the history, places and culture that served as the backdrop to the reign of China’s first emperor Qin Shihuang, and the creation of the terracotta warriors. Including a monumental installation of 10,000 suspended porcelain birds.
Spiralling over yout head, the birds create a three-dimensional impression of a calligraphic drawing of the sacred Mount Li, the site of the ancient tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang, and his warriors. Cai has created breathtaking immersive environments for the presentation of both his work and the Terracotta Warriors.
Don’t forget to check out the NGV Designer Store where you can purchase unique and contemporary products including your very own tasty terracotta warrior that you can paint with real chocolate paint.
