Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China Exhibit at Cincinnati Art Museum Part Three

Not Sponsored: This is Part Three (last post) of the Terracotta Army: Legacy of The First Emperor of China Exhibit I saw at Cincinnati Art Museum. You can view Part One and Two here & here. In Part Two, I showed you the Terracotta Warrior sculptures that were on display. Those were on one side of the exhibit. On the opposite side were small artifacts from the Qin Dynasty, Warring States Period, Duke Jing Reign and Neolithic Period. I placed them in groups for you below, so that they would make sense to you. Some pictures are a little blurry, because I was under the brevity of time. People entered the exhibit in one hour increments and so my focus was on the warriors. It still amazes me the excellent condition the artifacts were in considering the time period. It just goes to show you, quality lasts a long time. The exquisite details that went into each piece were also very beautiful to see in person. Many of you have expressed how much you enjoyed this series. I'm so happy and happy I could share it with you. This is another side of me that I hope to share more of on my blog :) I love history. My dad had a Master of Arts degree in History. I have a Science background. I find that the past explains a lot about the present, with people...places...and things! Live & Explore.
