Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor,China.

At the tomb of the first emperor who unified the country is buried surrounded by the famous terracotta warriors.It is largest in Chinese history with a unique standard and layout, and a large number of exquisite funeral objects.The small figures are all different with their horses, chariots and weapons and are masterpieces of realism and also of great historical interest. It testifies to the founding of the first unified empire- the Qin Dynasty, which during the 3rd BCE, wielded unprecedented political, military and economic power and advanced the social, cultural and artistic level of the empire.
