The Terracotta Army is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. This army of 8650 statues was buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE. Its purpose was to protect the emperor in his afterlife. An oral presentation, personal photos, and personal video of a visit to the Chinese museum, where the army is on display, are presented.
