An exhibition entitled “Bring Peace to All Under Heaven--The Qin Dynasty’s Unification of China” will open at the Changsha Museum on June 12. It is sponsored by the Changsha Municipal Bureau of Culture, Tourism, Radio and Television; and, undertaken by the Changsha Museum and the Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum.
The exhibition was among the 2019 “National Top 10 Fine Exhibitions” of the Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum. Its planning is drawn from the experience of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty regional cultural exhibition series.
The exhibition has united 20 domestic cultural venues and museums, and displays 161 pieces or sets of exhibits including representative cultural relics of the Qin Dynasty developing from a feudal state to an empire. It tells the development of the Qin Dynasty and the historical situation behind it from the political, economic, military, scientific and technological perspectives of that time.
Based on the stories of two soldiers in Qin Kingdom’s army recorded on unearthed wooden slips, the exhibition was divided into three parts, elaborating on how Qin successfully turned itself from an insignificant state located near China’s western border into a unified empire and how the political regime it built contributed to the progress of Chinese civilization.
