In a remarkable cultural exchange, 32 institutions in China are lending more than 160 objects to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for a show exploring the Qin and Han dynasties. Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (3 April-16 July), which covers around 440 years of history, examines the development of a cohesive Chinese Han ethnic identity in light of recent scholarship and archaeological digs conducted in the past 50 years. The show opens with a group of the celebrated terracotta warriors that guarded the mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China.
