The Terracotta Army marches into Liverpool



These ancient and beautiful artefacts can’t fail to amaze as they make a rare outing from their home in Xi’an in the People’s Republic of China.

As well as the life-size terracotta figures themselves, which are very impressive on their own, they are accompanied by a wide range of well displayed artefacts, all of which add to the story-telling perfectly.

Telling the history of the China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, and the subsequent dynasty’s, the scale and drama of an emerging history is explained and displayed beautifully, including the spectacular excesses as well as some of the more day-to-day lives of those involved in what was often a most brutal command.

History, geography, human interest, horror, and poignancy are all displayed in an atmospheric setting with a well-planned visitor experience that leaves room to view and absorb the exhibits in this popular collection.

It can’t compete with the full Xi’an experience and the home of the warriors,
but the flavour delivered in Liverpool’s World Museum, was well worth the visit.

  1. Carlini passed on December 8, 2019 of heart issues here in Las Vegas.
    His last performances here were at the (former) Hooters in early 2017.

    Carlini performed for many years at the Westgate, the unofficial home of Elvis here in Vegas,
    given it is where Elvis performed from 1969 to 1976 when the property was known as The International and
    The Las Vegas Hilton. Carlini performed there on the same stage as Elvis
    once did.

    Carlini, over the years, also performed at the Sahara, the Riviera, Holiday Inn Boardwalk and Planet

    Carlini was well known as being in the top tier of ETAs
    (Elvis Tribute Artists) and will always be well remembered in that regard.
