This exhibition that has made its way around various European cities now comes to Barcelona. In the words of writer and researcher Javier Serra, the exhibition's curator, it's a 'journey to the heart of one of the most enigmatic archaeological finds in history'. The show presents more then 150 pieces, reproductions based on the discoveries made in the Qin Shi Huang mausoleum and that give us the chance to find out more about the so-called 'eighth wonder of the world'. The Xi'an warriors were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, were on show in Barcelona's Fòrum in 2004, and in 2010 those responsible for their excavation received the Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences for their work.
