Apparently there was European DNA found in one of the burial sites. There are an estimated 8,000 terracotta soldiers at the imperial tomb of Qin Shi Huang, China's first emperor. While sculptures of China at that time were measured in inches, these warrior, horse, and chariot sculptures were life-sized, prompting archaeologists to find another explanation.
Li Xiuzhen, a senior archaeologist at the site said, "We now have evidence that close contact existed between the first emperor’s China and the west before the formal opening of the Silk Road [1500 years later]. This is far earlier than we formerly thought. We now think the Terracotta Army, the acrobats and the bronze sculptures found on site, have been inspired by ancient Greek sculptures and art."
I believe Li Xiuzhen is on to something remarkable, and I commend her for being open to the possibility of a Western influence on such an iconic symbol of China.
With the possibility of this East-West connection, it would not be unbelievable to imagine a skilled Westerner present in ancient China helping with the creation of the terracotta soldiers. As such, it would also not be unbelievable to imagine Sun Tzu's Art of War -- which emperor Qin Shi Huang studied extensively -- in a Westerner's hands in Rome 500 years later. After all, by the time of emperor Augustus in 27 BC, Chinese silk was streaming into Rome.
Therefore, Sun Tzu and Musonius might have more links with each other than two websites. My goodness.
