Terra-cotta Army 秦始皇兵馬俑













Terra-cotta Army 秦始皇兵馬俑
Terra-cotta Army, with some 8000 life-size infantrymen, archers,
and cavalrymen,each with distinct faces,
holding swords, spears, axes, halberds, longbows,
standing by ready next to their horses and chariots.
These were arrayed to guard the tomb of Emperor Qin,
which was rediscover by a farmer in 1974 while he was digging a well.
We saw some archaeologists working on-site
to uncover the rest of the vast tomb.
被譽為"世界第八大奇跡”的秦始皇陵兵馬俑,
生動逼真、神態
各異的秦俑排列成氣勢恢宏的軍陣,
以及各式青
銅兵器,無不令人感嘆古代文明的輝煌。
