The New Babylon venue in the Hague started their exhibit of the Terracotta Warriors on March 22, 2013.  So, what are the Terracotta Warriors?  The Terracotta Warriors (or army) are sculptures depicting the armies of the first ever emperor of China.  These collection have been buried since 210 BC and they were created to serve as an after-life protection to the emperor.  These Terracotta Warriors were only discovered in 1974 when a farmer found a part of the Terracotta pits.
