Over two thousand years ago, seven nations fought for the land known as the Middle Kingdom. Clouds of yellow dust filled the sky as armies of mythic proportions battled with utmost valor. In the end, the Qin nation emerged victorious, creating China’s first united dynasty, and leaving behind the famous terracotta warriors.
The Terracotta Army is a monumental series of statues created and buried during the Qin Dynasty. In Recalling the Great Qin, an artist walks into the excavation site in China’s Shaanxi province. Awed by the scene, he recalls the past, and witnesses the warriors come to life.
