For the Record

May 28, 2008

'Terra Cotta Warriors': An article in the May 17 Calendar section on the Bowers Museum's exhibition of 14 of China's ancient terra cotta warriors said that since 1982, when four terra cotta warriors and horses were displayed at the World's Fair in Knoxville, Tenn., such collections have turned up at various museums worldwide. Some warriors had previously appeared as part of an exhibition at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The article also misspelled China's Shaanxi Province as Shanxi Province. In addition, the article gave "pinyin" as the Chinese word for "eight." Pinyin is the phonetic system by which a Chinese word is registered in our alphabet. The word for eight is commonly rendered as "ba."
