C346 Terra Cotta Warriors
Issue Date: March 15, 2012
On March 15, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued six new stamps featuring Terra Cotta Warriors. In 1974, at the foot of China's Mount Lishan near
Xian, a peasant farmer unearthed a few ancient artifacts while digging a well. This seemingly insignificant discovery led to one of the most incredible archeological finds in history--the
2,200-year-old mausoleum of China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. Thousands of extraordinary clay statues have been unearthed--an army of Qin Shi Huang's terra cotta warriors. Life-sized horses,
infantrymen, charioteers and archers--armed with real bronze swords, spears and crossbows--were discovered. To protect this precious site from the elements and air pollution, China built the
Xi-An Terra-Cotta Museum. Since its opening in October 1994, the museum has attracted two million people a year from around the world. Qin Shi Huang's mausoleum was named a United Nations World
Heritage Site in 1987.
