The figure of a kneeling archer is displayed at an exhibition entitled 'The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army' at the British Museum, in central London, 12 September 2007. China's terracotta army is set to invade Britain on Thursday as some of the famous warriors go on show in London in a highly-anticipated exhibition. The British Museum is hosting 'The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army' until April 6 and advance ticket sales are already breaking box office records, according to The Times newspaper. About a dozen warriors are set to go on show. Around 100,000 tickets have already been sold and the exhibition could outstrip the Treasures of Tutenkhamun display in 1972, seen by 1.7 million people.
