An exhibition called "Ancient China and the Terra Cotta Army" was on display during Chile's devastated earthquake. But to people's relief, most of the pieces made it through the catastrophe.

The exhibition was on display in the Cultural Center of Chile's presidential palace. A total of 80 items are there, including 78 authentic relics and two replicas. The earthquake shook one piece to the floor, causing a minor crack, while the rest of the exhibits remain intact. Authorities of the Cultural Center have suspended the exhibition and carried out a thorough check on each item, guaranteeing they are still in good shape.
