Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Some of China's famed warriors have taken over New York City's Discovery Times Square.
Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China's First Emperor, is a historical archaeological discovery that opened in New York City on April 27th, featuring artifacts that date back to 221 BCE.
The Terracotta Warriors stand more than 6 feet fall and each weigh 600 pounds.
The soldiers were erected more than 2000 years ago to protect China's first emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, in his afterlife.
The discovery of the Terracotta Warriors was an accidental discovery in 1974 and it still remains one of the most sought after collections from ancient China. The exhibition was created and produced by Discovery Times Square in partnership with the China Institute.
The exhibit has three chronological stages. When you enter the exhibit, visitors will learn the history of Qin Dynasty, followed by how important the Terracotta Warriors were, and then close with the life of the Han Dynasty, whose traditions are still reflected in modern China.
In addition to the Terracotta Warriors, more than 200 artifacts and treasures are on display.
Discovery Times Square is open seven days a week. Tickets are on sale for the exhibit and for more information, visit Discovery Times Square website: http://www.discoverytsx.com/
