An army of thousands of Terra Cotta Warriors, which were buried for centuries protecting an emperor's tomb, is going to be exhibited in Children's Museum Indianapolis in the U.S. from May 10 to Nov. 2, 2014. This exclusive exhibition tells the astounding story of the tomb complex of China's first emperor. It features 118 groups of real Terra Cotta Warriors, among which 18 are of the first rank historical relics.


Every Terra Cotta warrior is transported with extreme caution


Experts keep a record of every Terra Cotta warrior for the exhibition


Two specialists spend more than five hours checking the stone armor


Every flaw or black spot on the warriors is kept in record
