Terracotta Army marches to Cincinnati Art Museum for the first time



Guardians of the First Emperor of China’s tomb will be on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum for the first time ever. Since its discovery in 1974, more than 8,000 soldiers have been recovered from the First Emperor’s mausoleum in Xi’an.

Photojournalist Emily Maxwell traveled with the Cincinnati Art Museum to China in January for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Terracotta Army.
