For those who may not know this bit of info about my ancestry, I am one eighth Chinese. How I came to that calculation is a post for another day, but suffice to say, my great grandfather was born in the then Canton province of southern China. (It is now called Guangdong – former official name was Kwangtung). So, anything relating to China is usually of interest to me, and hence, I was keen to go see the Terracotta Army and the First Emperor of China: The Exhibition.
Now, I’ve seen bits and pieces of the what is known as the Terracotta Army either in the movies or documentaries over the years, but I never really knew what they were all about – until now. Thanks to this exhibition that is currently on at Silverstar Casino in Krugersdorp (now called Mogale City) in Johannesburg.
