The terracotta warriors of Qin Shihuang, China’s first emperor, are regarded as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the twentieth century. Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality showcases these extraordinary Qin dynasty objects, along with priceless gold, jade and bronze artefacts dating from the Zhou dynasty through to the Han dynasty.

With written contributions from Wayne Crothers, NGV Senior Curator, Asian Art; Zhang Weixing, Research Fellow at Emperor Qin Shihuang’s Mausoleum Site Museum in China; and Professor Tonia Eckfeld, a Chinese archaeology and cultural heritage expert and Principal Fellow at the University of Melbourne, this volume presents a rich and nuanced exploration of more than 1000 years of Chinese art and culture.
