New terracotta figures in China

Two new wells of officials and terracotta figures from the Mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang (259 BC - 210 BC) have been opened to the public this month. The "Acrobat hole”, Discovered in 1999, is located southeast of the Mausoleum.

The 11 figures discovered, armored although with their naked torsos, are very different from the famous "terracotta warriors”, And in this case they could represent the acrobats and dancers of the Qin Dynasty, according to archaeologists.

A bronze tripod was also found, being the strongest and largest of all Qin Shihuang Mausoleum.
