The Lanterns of Terracotta Warriors exhibition was commissioned in 2008 for the Beijing Olympic Games. The lanterns are inspired by the famous ‘terracotta army’ discovered when the tomb of the 3rd Century BC Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang was found in Xi’an province in 1974. This army, housed in an underground vault of 12,000 square meters, comprised 8,000 warriors arranged in battle formation, ready to defend the emperor’s immortal soul.

The artist of the lantern exhibition chose to humanize the terracotta army, in keeping with the traditions of Chinese lantern design. These brightly colored, greater than life size figures are accurate representations of the terracotta soldiers, but this ‘army’ includes women and children arranged in family groups.
