  • About the Book
  • Exhibition catalogue for the show held at the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore, in 2011, this catalogue sets the warriors in a wider context by examining art of the Qin state in the period that led to the unification of China. It publishes new essays on the complex political and scholarly ramifications of the archaeological discovery, and on how Qin and Han tomb architecture is an evocation of the cosmos. And the legacy of the warriors is considered in the smaller not no less interesting pottery figures for tombs of the early Han dynasty.
