South-pointing Chariot - Where They Can Be Seen

Where They Can Be Seen

While none of the historic south-pointing chariots remain, full sized replicas can be found.

The History Museum in Beijing, China holds a replica based on the mechanism of Yen Su (1027). The National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan holds a replica based on the Lanchester mechanism of 1932.

Referred to as the "southern pointing man", two replicas can also be seen (and physically experimented with) at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto Canada.

    Upon confusion to be seen and seen.

    spray-gunned?

    grown fully, as they say,
    they gave her a ring,

    and lay like a statue in her bed.
