The Terracotta Warrior at Moesgaard

A 1:1 copy of a warrior from the terracotta army was featured in a special exhibition at Moesgaard Museum called ‘The First Emperor: China’s Terracotta Army’ in 2015. The warrior was made of unglazed terracotta, and his clothing was projected onto him in colours chosen by the public. Visitors to the museum were invited to choose the colours of individual items of clothing using a touch screen – enabling them to design the warrior’s clothing themselves. And when they had finished, the warrior joined the army projected onto the wall behind him.
