Xinhua News Agency reporter Guo Dan Yang Guang Li Guangzheng

"I think the terracotta warriors and horses should also be called ambassadors, because they, like giant pandas, can make people feel the charm of China wherever they go." On the 21st, at the Ueno Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, a Japanese historian and study Kazuyuki Tsuruma, an honorary professor at the University, told a reporter from Xinhua News Agency.

As an important cultural exchange event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between China and Japan, the large-scale cultural relics exhibition "Terracotta Warriors and Horses and Ancient China–The Heritage of Qin and Han Civilizations" ushered in the Japanese touring exhibition after being exhibited in Kyoto, Shizuoka, Nagoya and other places The final work – Tokyo Ueno Forest Art Museum exhibition.

In 1974, after the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Qinshihuang Mausoleum were discovered, it caused a sensation all over the world. In 1976, he went abroad for the first time and came to Japan. "At that time, about 1.5 million Japanese people lined up to visit the Tokyo National Museum. The popularity was no less than that of giant pandas coming to Japan." Tang Qishan, curator of this exhibition and executive director of the Japan-China Cultural Association, told reporters. It is hoped that the Japanese people can understand China's splendid Qin and Han culture through this exhibition, and also review the history of Sino-Japanese cultural exchanges in 1976.

Tang Qishan said that the previous exhibitions were very successful, with 240,000 visitors already. "What makes us even more delighted is that there are so many young people among the audience. We are very pleased with the enthusiasm shown by Japanese young people for Chinese Qin culture."

A total of 121 pieces (groups) of cultural relics from 16 cultural and museum institutions in Shaanxi Province and one cultural and museum institution in Hunan Province were exhibited in this exhibition. The exhibition is divided into three parts: "Qin on the Eve of Unification", "Birth of the Unified Dynasty" and "Prosperity of the Han Dynasty". Painted terracotta warriors and horses of different periods and shapes in different periods, as well as many first-class cultural relics mobilized from museums all over China, such as gilt bronze horses from the former Han Dynasty, and golden turtle seals from the Han Dynasty.

Guo Xiangdong, deputy director of the Mausoleum Museum of the First Qin Emperor, said that there are 9 terracotta warriors and horses and one seated terracotta warrior on display in this exhibition. "You can watch various details of the terracotta warriors and horses at close range and 360 degrees, and judge the type and level of the terracotta warriors and horses from the costumes and headgear."

In the exhibition hall, the reporter found that the "No. 2 Bronze Chariot and Horse" exhibit was surrounded by a circle of comic works. "This is a very popular manga in Japan, "The King of the World" created in the background of the Qin and Han Dynasties. You can see the images of bronze chariots and horses in the manga. This kind of manga creation and real cultural relics are placed in the same time and space for mutual echo display The method is also an important reason to attract many young people." Guo Xiangdong said.

Kazuyuki Tsuruma is a professor of history specializing in the study of ancient Chinese history. He told the reporter that another important reason why Japanese young people like to watch Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses and learn about the history of Qin and Han Dynasties is that Japanese young people have a certain ability to read Chinese. Kazuyuki Tsuruma said that during his more than 40 years of teaching at the university, many students came to him to learn ancient Chinese history. He will help Japanese young people improve their Chinese reading ability through "Historical Records" and other historical documents, and at the same time combine historical documents with archaeological objects to enhance students' interest in learning. And this exhibition is an excellent opportunity for more Japanese young people to understand ancient Chinese history and culture through living cultural relics.

"Exhibition of cultural relics is the best means of folk cultural exchange. I hope that the ambassador of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses can play a better role in promoting non-governmental exchanges and friendship." Kazuyuki Tsuruma said.
