Palma.—On Saturday morning, the so called “Eighth Wonder of the World” is going to be on show in Palma when an exhibition of replicas of the most important archaeological discovery of the 20th century, The Terracotta Army opens on the Levante Industrial Estate near the new convention centre which is being built on Palma sea front.

In 2002 the initiators of the exhibition made a dream come true and brought numerous impressions of this historical sensation to Europe.
Ancient furnaces
The exhibition features 150 perfect life-size replicas of terracotta figures and horses which were all specially created in ancient furnaces following traditional methods.

Furthermore, a group of Chinese experts recreated together with several designers a series of ancient dresses that Chinese women wore thousands of years ago, on the basis of fabric remnants, stone figures and images found in different excavations.

There are also a total of 15 Chinese figures with real hair wigs, which are a spectacular representation of women's fashion from the Qin dynasty.
The individuality and facial expressions of the warriors are stunning and since the exhibition first premiered in Frankfurt, it has been seen by over one million visitors as it has toured Europe.

Jacques Chirac
The exhibition, housed in a special air conditioned marquee, uses the very latest light and sound technology so that visitors can get a real feel for the awesome army, the original of which was found by farmers in 1974 and has since been declared a UNESCOWorld Cultural Heritage site.

Audio visual guides in various languages will help explain the exhibition to visitors and documentaries will also be shown in Spanish, German and English.

It was the former French President Jacques Chirac who proclaimed it “the eighth wonder of the world.”
