I am very excited to bring this great news to you and hope you too will welcome this grand exhibition at Taiwan Art Show.
What is so special about this recent Art Show. This Art exhibition show all works made of chocolate, which has always been associated with joy, love and romance! It has been linked to chemicals which cause happiness and indescribable waves of pleasure.
One of the rare exhibitions featured miniature chocolate replicas of China's ancient terracotta warriors. I am sure you will be amazed by it.
The show, called 'World Chocolate Wonderland', follows on from a previous exhibition of chocolate art in Beijing which drew more than 400,000 visitors according to its organiser.
The centrepiece of the show, which opens from July 3 to the late September, will be more than 400 mini terracotta warriors from the first Chinese Emperor's tomb each measuring 35 centimetres tall. This makes history of more than 2,000 years come alive. As such, this is a not to missed exhibition.
This creation illustrates the point that chocolate is not only edible, but also can be used as a material in art. This creation is a marvelous idea of its inventor who uses his creativity to make life more colourful and enlightening. Life is full of joy.
Other major display is the replicas of Taipei's landmark buildings, Taipei 101. This building, at one time was the world's tallest skyscraper, will also be on display alongside a chocolate mock-up of the Great Wall of China, which was first shown in Beijing in January.
To prevent these exhibits from melting, they will be kept in a temperature-controlled room. Please share your experience for those who have visited the exhibition. Thanks for sharing.
We are sure that this news will not only give you a real lift, but also serve an eyes opener to see such an art exhibition. Children too will enjoy this exhibition especially for those who used to spend their time on computer games.
This Festival not only offers us a time to rejuvenate the senses and pamper our desires, but also assists us to experience the simplest pleasure in life.
This Festival too benefits all its participants in term of their marketing and promotional objectives. Here, we can clearly see that it fulfills all parties’ needs and satisfaction.

Below is the short briefing of :-
The Terracotta Warriors represent only a small portion of the eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the Emperor Qinshihuang's tomb (r. 221-207 BC) to defend him in the afterlife. The craftsmanship attested by each of the statues is as stupendous as the scale of the project. So who was the Emperor Qinshihuang to merit such magnificence?
One of the most important rulers in Chinese history, this Emperor leaves a legacy as morally complicated as that of Peter the Great. For, like the Russian Tsar, he is as well-known for his contributions to the modern state as he is for sacrificing the lives of thousands of laborers to his visionary projects. Made King of the state of Qin at the age of thirteen, by the time he was thirty-eight he conquered the six neighboring states to unify China for the first time.
Although reviled for his tyranny, Qinshihuangdi is also admired for many radical and insightful policies which subsequent dynasties employed. To synthesize seven separate states into one nation, he standardized a common script and established uniform measurement and monetary systems. For effective government, he codified a legal system and replaced hereditary rulers with a centrally appointed administrative system. To improve industrial productivity he encouraged agricultural reforms and constructed many roads. And in an effort to limit the inroads of barbarian tribes, he supervised the construction of a defence fortification along the northern frontier, the first Great Wall. Although China benefited from these policies, thousands of Chinese workers died in completing this far-reaching public works program.
700,000 forced laborers were sacrificed to construct his tomb which was begun as soon as he ascended the throne. All workers and childless concubines were interred with him to safeguard its secrets. According to Sima Qian's "The Historical Records" written a century later, heaven and earth are represented in the tomb's central chamber. The ceiling, inlaid with pearls, represents the starry heavens. The floor, made of stone, forms a map of the Chinese kingdom; a hundred rivers of mercury flow across it. And all manner of treasure is protected by deadly booby-traps.
The main tomb has still to be excavated - partly because archaeologists are still uncertain of its exact location. Often Emperors amassed huge burial mounds simply to divert robbers' attention from the true site of their tomb. So the artificial mound that today marks the Emperor's tomb does not necessarily indicate the location of its wondrous central chamber. However, because high mercury levels have recently been reported nearby, archaeologists think they may, at last, have discovered it. The Terracotta Warriors, that you will see today, form just one of the many barriers the ruthless Emperor employed to protect his tomb for eternity.
The limestone and marble Kouroi and Kourai of the Greek Late Archaic Period (535-480 BCE) refute the claim that the Terracotta Warriors were the first free-standing statues in the history of world art. This, though, does little to undermine the ingenuity of the Terracotta Warriors' design and manufacturing process. For whereas the Ancient Greeks meticulously carved individual statues out of stone, the Qin dynasty project held all the problems of production on a mass scale. Tens of thousands of individual human and animal statues were manufactured within a series of processes that began with the molding of solid legs.
It was by constructing each of the hollow statues upon solid legs that the Ancient Chinese craftsemen solved the perplexing problem of how to make a statue free-standing. Hollow heads, arms and legs, made of coiled earth, were joined together with strips of clay and set upon the solid legs. After this rough model was assembled, a fine clay slip was added, and details such as eyes, mouth, nose and details of dress were carved into the clay while it was still pliable. Additional pieces such as ears, beard and armour were modeled separately and attached, after which the whole figure was fired at a high temperature.
