From Oct. 2012 to Jan. 2013, the National Palace Museum (NPM) and the Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Exchange Association co-hosted The Cultural Grandeur of the Western Zhou Dynasty. The said exhibition was ranked by a British art journal (i.e., The Art Newspaper) as the number one exhibition among the top 10 most popular exhibitions around the world in 2013, consequently leading to the curating of the Terracotta: The Rise and Legacy of Qin Culture, a special exhibition running at the NPM today.

The Qin empire is the first feudal empire in China. Its administrative, political, and rites and rituals systems had a profound influence on China's later developments. As a state that evolved from a corner state in China to one that defeated six other states to unify China, the distinctive characteristics of its people (i.e., the Qin people) are clearly shown, which epitomizes the development of Chinese civilization.

Since the discovery of Terracotta Army pit on the east side of the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor (in Lintong District, Shaanxi) in 1974, the region has attracted countless visitors from around the world. In 1987, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated the said mausoleum as a World Heritage Site. The Terracotta Army has since become a representative symbol of the Qin Dynasty and a topic heavily researched and explored by historians and archaeologists. The Terracotta: The Rise and Legacy of Qin Culture special exhibition features 189 sets of artifacts, some of which were borrowed from the Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica and 19 artifact collection organizations in the provinces of Shaanxi and Gansu. Artifacts such as pugubujia, zichege, Xirong noble tombs, and carriages of the kings of Xirong, which have never been exhibited in Taiwan, are major archaeological discoveries of China in recent years, making the Terracotta: The Rise and Legacy of Qin Culture special exhibition one that visitors will not want to miss.

This exhibition catalogue is divided into volumes, which are the Catalogue for the Reverberations of Qin Heritage: Qin Culture Exhibition and the Catalogue for the Tracing the Roots of Ying Qin: Qin Culture Exhibition, in which sections "Qin, Zhou, and Rong," "Eastward to Hegemony," "Reform and Change," and "Han: Continuing in the Footsteps of Qin" as well as monographs from archaeologists and historians detail the Qin culture. Regarding the monographs, four by Zhang Tian-en and five by Zhao Hua-cheng are included in the Catalogue for the Reverberations of Qin Heritage: Qin Culture Exhibition and the Catalogue for the Tracing the Roots of Ying Qin: Qin Culture Exhibition, respectively, to allow readers to gain insight into the exhibition items and learn about Qin history, culture, and systems. By reading the two catalogues, readers will be able to experience the mesmerizing "interactions and exchanges" between modern civilization and one from two thousand years ago.


國立故宮博物院與陝西省文物交流協會於2012年10月至2013年1月,合作推出「赫赫宗周-西周文化特展」,展覽內容被英國〈藝術報〉評選為2013年世界最受歡迎的十大展覽之首,因此結下本次「秦.俑-秦文化與兵馬俑特展」的因緣契機。

秦帝國是中國歷史上創建的第一個封建帝國,所建立的行政管理、政治及禮儀制度,對中國歷史上影響深遠,一路從華夏邊緣到最後殲滅六國,完成統一大業之歷程,展現秦人和秦族歷史發展的特色,更是中華文明發展進程的縮影。

自1974年於陝西臨潼縣秦始皇陵東側,震撼世人的兵馬俑坑被發現後,吸引各地觀光客蜂擁而來朝聖,旋於1987年被聯合國教科文組織指定為世界文化遺產,至此,秦俑成為秦朝的代表,並成為史學家及考古專家竭力探究的課題,本展覽共有189組件文物,分別借展自陝西與甘肅兩省共十九個文物典藏單位及中央研究院歷史語言研究所,其中蒲姑卜甲、子車戈、西戎貴族墓葬及戎王馬車等,皆為大陸近年重大考古發現,是第一次跨海來台千載難逢不容錯過的展覽。

本展覽圖錄分別以《秦業流風》、《嬴秦溯源》二冊,以秦與周戎、東進稱霸、變法革新、漢承制度等年代系統脈絡,鉅細靡遺完整呈現秦文化並收錄了考古及史學專家們論述,其中《秦業流風》張天恩等專文四篇,《嬴秦溯源》收錄趙化成等專文五篇,讓讀者讚嘆於詳盡的展件外,更深入地親炙秦人歷史、文化及制度,並感受二千年前文化與今日文明間激盪所產生的驚艷震懾與時空對話。.
