Last chance to view

TODAY and tomorrow will be the last chance for visitors to view the "Along the River During the Qingming Festival" painting in the China Pavilion.

The "Bronze Chariot and Horse" sculpture, the precious centerpiece of the terra-cotta warriors from the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC) will replace the painting on Tuesday morning. The painting will return to Liaoning Museum.

The pavilion's "National Treasure" section on the second floor has a moving belt on which visitors stand while they view the painting.

Two well-preserved chariot and horse sculptures, among the top national treasures of China, were unearthed in 1980 among the terra-cotta soldiers in Xi'an, capital city of Shaanxi Province.

The No. 1 chariot and horse will be exhibited in the pavilion -- it is believed to be a copy of the personal carriage of the First Emperor of Qin, who in 221 BC unified China for the first time.
