I will pay for the following essay Time Traveling, Art Historian. The essay is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page.
I was able to ask a Chinese local worker, among hundreds of thousands of them, what the purpose of building such a large army is for. They told me it is to protect the tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the first and current emperor of China when he passes away and so he would have subjects to reign over in the afterlife. This emperor has done great things for China indeed. He first unified China more than a decade from the time I have currently travelled to, which is around 210 BC.
Indeed, “the craftsmanship attested by each of the statues is as stupendous as the scale of the project.” (“The Terracotta Warriors: Forbidding Sentinels of a Death Defying Emperor”) What I notice most is how these sculpted bands of warriors are matchless. They are life-size
figures that are individually being shaped in clay by apparently about 700,000 men who come from all over China and Eastern Asia. “Interestingly, seven individuals came from southern China, and a smaller number came from northern China.” (Anne, 2008)
The details on the sculptures are extremely dumbfounding. Present approximations are that in the depths enclosing the army, there are right now about six thousand warriors, fifty chariots with more than four hundred horses, and they plan on making a few more. Along with the military figures also include officials, entertainers, and performers. From this great monument, I certainly can see how important the afterlife is for them and that they believe that one can bring possessions and even people with him/her when they pass away.
After about a month, I then time travel to a nation just beside China, in the time of the 1820s. This nation’s culture, in reality, has actually been shaped by Chinese culture itself. This country is the great nation of Japan. This time, as I have found out, is during the Tokugawa Shogunate. During my first few days of staying in this beautiful and seemingly serene country, I was able to befriend a few Japanese locals. I asked them
