An exhibition featuring chocolate replicas of China’s famous terracotta warriors is to move to Taiwan in July. Taipei will host the ‘Chocolate Wonderland’ show, which opened in Beijing in January and drew around half a million visitors, said organiser Annie Sun. The exhibition will feature 500 life-size replicas of the terracotta warriors from the first Chinese emperor’s tomb, alongside other artworks made from chocolate, Sun said.

The Terracotta Army is a form of funerary art buried with the First Emperor of Qin in 210-209 BC. The show, that’ll use a massive 80 tonnes of chocolate, may also include a miniature version of Taipei 101, the city’s landmark building.
