当你踏进 博物馆 高大的圆拱顶展厅,面对着坑中成千上万的灰黑色士兵和马匹时,时间似乎开始凝固,然后迅速回移,带你返回到两千多年前的世界 。在面积最大的1号坑里,6000多个陶俑整装肃立,另外还有由4匹马拖驾的木质战车 模型。陶俑排列得极为规整,前面是横排三列计210名持弩战士,后面是分成38路纵队的步兵和战车兵,左右两侧和最后一排,各有一列面朝外的持弩战士 。在2号坑中,排列着战车89乘,驾车陶马356匹,各类兵士900余人,骑兵用鞍马116匹。

Once inside the Museum of Qin Dynasty Terracotta Warriors and Battle Steeds, you'll find a huge army silent for well over 2,000 years. In No.1 pit, there are 6,000 warriors standing in full attention, along with four wooden chariot models. These figurines are in neat formations, with 210 crossbow men in three columns serving as the vanguard. Behind the vanguard there are foot soldiers and chariots in 38 columns. Soldiers of the last column, facing the opposite direction, obviously serve as the rear guard. At either side of the columns there are soldiers protecting the flank. In the No. 2 pit we find 89 chariots driven by 356 horses, more than 900 foot soldiers and 116 battle steeds.

重重队列,庞大的军阵,无声的战士和车马,似乎将人带入了一种古老而寂静的永恒。但即便是这种没有一丝声音的凝固,依然让人感受到秦国军队 那逼人的气势
Though not real, these terracotta warriors and horses bring history back to life. It is with this huge army that Emperor Shi Huang defeated the six states to the east of his kingdom and unified China, and the same "army" has stood guard for the emperor in the nether world.

秦兵马俑的出现,一方面显示了秦王朝的宏大气魄与雄浑气势;另一方面,所费人力、财力和物力之巨,也是难以想象的,因此它们又是秦王朝苛政 的有力证据
While serving as material evidence to the might of the dynasty, the magnitude of labor, financial and material resources used for their production brings to light the ruthlessness of the emperor, a most notorious dictator in the Chinese history.
