19 Nov-17 Feb. This popular exhibition recreates the terracotta army of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huangdi. One of the 20th century's major archaeological discoveries, the figures were first uncovered by accident by Chinese farmers in 1974.
The find dates from the third century BC and was subsequently declared part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage in 1987. The exhibition in Brussels comprises more than 150 replica warriors with horses and chariots, as well as weapons, jewellery, household implements and works of art from the period.
An audiovisual show relates the history of the first emperor of China and his army, and all images are accompanied by explanatory texts.
Designed by Austria's EMS Entertainment, the exhibition has attracted more than 1.3 million visitors since it began touring Europe ten years ago.
