Bronze Horses From Qin Dynasty 210 BC

These horses are part of "No. 2 Bronze Chariot and Horses" in the Shaanxi History Museum in Shaanxi Province. They are one of two unearthed in December 1980. Over 2,000 years ago they were encased in a wooden box and buried in a trench 26 feet down. After recovery and extensive restoration, they were unveiled in 1983 ("No. 1...." was not unveiled until 1988). These statues are 1/2-scale models. The chariot measures 10½ feet long and 3½ feet high. It weighs over 2,700 pounds.
