Collections Manager Christa Deacy-Quinn of the Spurlock Museum at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana explains the steps that must be taken when handling valuable artifacts.

The Terra Cotta Warriors are a collection of 8,000 statues that were buried over 2,000 years ago in the tomb of China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huang. Three of the statues - two soldiers and a horse - were sent to the Kennedy Center for display during the Festival of China.
