Terracotta army / Guerreros de terracota / Armée de terre cuite / Exército de terracota

In English:

Terracotta army.

It was in October 2013 when we traveled to the town of Tampere to visit the exhibition of Terracotta Army and the treasures of first Emperors of China in Vapriikki. Vapriikki is a museum Centre that, organizes high quality exhibitions. Tampere has more than 225000 inhabitants and by train from Helsinki, the train trip lasts about 2½ hours.

The exhibition:

It was in 1974, when the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi was discovered. The tomb revealed nearly 8000 warriors and its age was more than 2000 years old. Those solders guarded the tomb and more excavations revealed many precious items like gold and jade and not only these precious things but also things, which man needed in everyday life. Ancient Chinese believed that life after death continued in the similar way then before the death. The exhibition of Vapriikki presented for example first emperor’s bronze carriage and other objects found from the tomb.

After my photos, I give links to Vapriikki and to some other sites that provide additional information about the Terracotta army.

End español:

Guerreros de terracota.

Fue en octubre de 2013, cuando viajábamos a la ciudad de Tampere para visitar la exposición de los Guerreros de terracota y los tesoros de los primeros emperadores de China en Vapriikki. Vapriikki es un centro de museo que, organiza exposiciones de alta calidad. Tampere tiene más de 225.000 habitantes y en tren de Helsinki, el viaje dura aproximadamente dos horas y media.

La exibición:

Fue en 1974, cuando se descubrió la tumba del emperador Qin Shi Huangdi. La tumba reveló casi 8.000 guerreros y su edad era de más de 2000 años de antigüedad. Esos soldados custodiaban la tumba y excavaciones adicionales revelaron muchos objetos preciosos como el oro y el jade y no sólo estas cosas preciosas, sino también a las cosas, que se necesita en la vida cotidiana. Los antiguos chinos creían que la vida continúa después de la muerte de forma similar a continuación, antes de la muerte. La exposición de Vapriikki presentaba, por ejemplo, un carro de bronce del primer emperador y otros objetos encontrados en la tumba.

Después de mis fotos, voy a dar enlaces a Vapriikki y a algunos otros sitios que proporcionan información adicional sobre los guerreros de terracota.

En francais:

Armée de terre cuite.

Il était en Octobre 2013, lorsque nous sommes allés à la ville de Tampere pour visiter l’exposition de l’Armée de terre cuite et les trésors de premiers empereurs de la Chine en Vapriikki. Vapriikki est un Centre de musée qui, organise des expositions de grande qualité. Tampere a plus de 225000 habitants et par le train de Helsinki, le voyage en train dure environ deux heures et demie.

L’exposition:

Il était en 1974, lorsque le tombeau de l’empereur Qin Shi Huangdi a été découvert. Le tombeau a révélé près de 8000 guerriers et son âge était plus de 2000 ans. Ces soldats gardaient le tombeau et les fouilles supplémentaires ont révélé de nombreux objets précieux comme l’or et de jade et non seulement ces choses précieuses, mais aussi des choses, dont on avait besoin dans la vie quotidienne. Les anciens Chinois croyaient que la vie après la mort a continué dans la même manière, comme avant la mort. L’exposition de Vapriikki présentait pour exemple, la voiture de bronze premier du l’empereur et d’autres objets trouvés dans la tombe.

Après mes photos, je vais donner des liens vers Vapriikki et à certains autres sites qui fournissent des informations supplémentaires sur l’armée en terre cuite.

Em português:

Esses soldados guardavam a tumba e as escavações adicionales revelaram muitos itens preciosos como o ouro e jade e não apenas estas coisas preciosas, mas também as coisas, que o homem precisava na vida cotidiana.

    • Hello Marion.

      You are right. Tampere is absolutely worth for a visit. Last winter we visited there watching a comedy in a theatre. Spending a weekend and theatre is nice combination. We have done these kinds of weekend visits in many towns in Finland. Next weekend We’ll go to the theatre in Pori. We Finns love comedies and they are very popular among people. I just wonder if You have visited these two places in Tampere:

      Pispala

      Angry Birds and city of Tampere.

      Have a wonderful day!

    • Hello Linda.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. You were the first one who noticed that things behind the glass are not easy to shoot photos. Exhibitors situate lights so that they point to camera lens also, not only to things. It is in some case difficult to find the right place for photographing. Also, photographer has to notice other people.

      Happy weekend!

    That is amazing, isn’t it? Thousands of replicas?
    There is also a powerful like lining up.
    It seems to be made by changing one’s face
    I can feel the feelings of the people at that time.
    I heard it for the first time in the town of Tampere.
    It’s very close to Helsinki.

      This Morning we had in our biggest newspaper a very nice story about Naruhito (天皇) and Reiwa (令和). We Finns are interested in the Japanese Imperial Family.

      Tampere is beautiful town and it is connected by train to Helsinki. Fastest train goes in one hour and 32 minutes between these two towns.

  31. What a stunning exhibition of the Terracotta Army and treasures of ancient China. What is so striking about the exhibition are the numerous soldiers in the army: they look so similar but grouped together, they look like a force and power to be reckoned with. There will be a similar exhibition here in Melbourne in the coming months. So looking forward to it. Amazing photography and such clarity in your close-ups. Well worth the travel for a good day. Hope you have been well, Sartenada 🙂

  35. These figures have always fascinated me, ever since I learned about their existence. It must have been incredibly impressive to see a collection of them so close to home.

  36. I’ve always been fascinated by the Terracotta Army since I was a schoolgirl in 1974 and read about the discovery, we went there a couple of years ago and was blown away. Absolutely amazing just how much detail there is in each warrior.
