Qin Bronze Car and Horse Flag

Qin Bronze Car and Horse Flag

In 1980, at the Qinshihuang Mausoleum in Lintong, Shaanxi Province, in a burial pit 20 meters west of the enclosure, two large-scale burial bronze chariots and horses were unearthed with flags planted on them, one after the other.

Copper carriages and horses are about half the size of real horses. The earliest period of production was during the construction of the mausoleum, which was before 210 B.C. The main body of the bronze chariot and horse and all the flags are made of bronze. Some parts are gold and silver jewelry.

Each part of the bronze carriage and horse was cast separately. The craftsmen in Qin Dynasty successfully used various techniques such as casting, welding, mosaic, pin joint, movable hinge connection, button connection between mother and child, and shaft connection, and perfectly combined the carriage, horse and flag into a whole.

The Qin bronze carriage and horse flag is fully imitated and elaborately made, which truly reproduces the driving style of the Qin Shihuang Emperor. It also shows that the metal processing technology of the Qin Dynasty has made brilliant achievements, which are embodied in the manufacture of bronze carriages and horses in the Qinling Mausoleum.

The horse in the flag is white. Most of the pigments used in the painting are mineral pigments mixed with glue. The three-dimensional lines are shaped by the concentration of glue. It is the most complex and huge ancient bronze ware found in the archaeological history of the 20th century and is known as the “crown of bronze”.

We not only make various flags and badges, but also embroider these exquisite cultural relics on the ornaments you need.
