Some even older relics are ready to continue their tour in Canada as the exhibition of China's famed Terra Cotta Warriors ends in Toronto.

On display are nearly 250 artifacts unearthed near the necropolis of Qin Shi Huang, who declared himself the First Emperor of China in 221 B.C.

The Terra Cotta Army, unearthed in Xi'an by local farmers in 1974, is a form of funerary art buried along with the First Emperor some two-thousand years ago.
