Another item no one wanted to bid on, I liked it and the history. It is copper. It has a case that goes over the top of it. It is exact copy of the one unearthed at Terracotta Tombs. He had 720,000 unpaid laborers build his tomb. He believed in the school of five elements earth wood, metal, fire, and water. Sima Quian was first Emperor and his tomb has Terracotta warriors. Emperor Huang's Tomb has been located, but legend is that it is booby trapped and they have put probes into it and Mercury poisoning is 100+ times lethal. Secrets were kept as he killed almost all the workers.
