China's Terracotta Army exhibited in Denmark


An exhibition featuring China's first emperor Qin Shi Huang and his terracotta army kicked off in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, on April 1.

The exhibition is a part of a series of cultural exchanges to commemorate the 65th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Denmark and the People's Republic of China.

The exhibition, The First Emperor-China's Terracotta Army, was opened by Danish Prince Consort Henrik at the Moesgaard Museum on the outskirt of Aarhus. Queen of Denmark Margrethe II also attended the opening ceremony after a brief tour of the exhibition accompanied by Chinese ambassador to Denmark Liu Biwei and Danish Minister for Culture Marianne Jelved.

Addressing a crowd of invited guests at the opening ceremony, Liu said China and Denmark have been enjoying close cooperation over the years and cultural exchanges between the two countries have highlighted the deepening bilateral ties.

"With the joint efforts of all parities, the friendly Sino-Danish relationship will embrace a brighter future, promoted by the deepening people-to-people and cultural exchanges," Liu said.

Jan Skamby Madsen, director of Moesgaard Museum, said the exhibition will introduce Danish and international visitors to "a remarkable and significant era in Chinese history".

"Through the personal story of Emperor Qin Shi Huang and his spectacular achievements, we wish to enhance the interest in Chinese history and culture in general," Madsen said.
