Warriors, Tombs, and Temples: China's Enduring Legacy

The Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California and The Houston Museum of Natural Science have marshaled a new army for display. Warriors, Tombs, and Temples: China’s Enduring Legacy opens at the Bowers Museum in celebration of Chinese National Day on Oct. 1, 2011. The exhibition will make its second and final stop at the Houston Museum of Natural Science March 30, 2012 through September 3, 2012.


Warriors, Tombs, and Temples includes 200 incredibly preserved ancient works of art featuring newly-discovered artifacts unearthed from imperial, royal and elite tombs and from beneath Buddhist monasteries in and around the capital cities of three great dynasties, all located near the modern city of Xi’an in Shaanxi Province. These are Xianyang, the capital city during the Qin dynasty (221 – 206 BCE), Chang’an, the capital city during the Western or Former Han (206 BCE – 8 CE) and the Tang (618 – 907 CE) dynasties.
