Terracotta army exhibition in the Netherlands

Yesterday I took the opportunity to visit the terracotta army exhibition in the Drenths Museum in the Netherlands. I highly recommend it to anyone! I was mostly going in the hope to see some interesting bronze stuff, but I must say that the terracotta statues did make quite an impression. They were set up on a higher platform, without any glass and you can get really close. They were also very well lit, which made making good photos possible. But for me personally, the greatest highlight was a bronze Qin sword! I must have spend more then an hour at the display case, making as many photos as possible. Unfortunately, it was not very well lit, so making photos of the entire sword was impossible.

Photos will follow later! :)

Wow.. I just HAVE to go there!
I already saw the part in Groningen but it just contains over 60 pieces of wine and food bowls.. the Assen part seems a lot more exiting! :o :o
(the bowls were of course actually very beautifull and detailed bronze pieces.. but not as exiting as the warriors part I guess)

Greetings LuciŽn..

I have a feeling that this is the same exhibition that came to NZ last year. I work in the theatre that held the exhibition. The artifacts were very cool, but I found out that the terracotta warriors were copies - the real ones cannot leave china :(
