Rabbit belt hook
The mausoleum also contains 11 attendant tombs, located to the north of Liu Fei's tomb. Human sacrifice had largely ceased in China by the second century B.C., so the people buried here likely were not killed when Liu Fei died. This image shows a gold rabbit belt hook found in one of the tombs.
Chariot and horse
The mausoleum also contains two chariot-and-horse pits, such as this colorfully decorated chariot, found in one of the pits, made of wood, lacquer, bronze, gold and silver.
Another image of this colorful chariot. In addition to this chariot four other examples were found in the same pit.
