Ancient Chinese Culture: Costume and Adornment
The National Museum of China has opened an exhibition titled “Ancient Chinese Culture: Costume and Adornment”. This is the museum’s first exhibition on the general history of Chinese costume, taking visitors on a journey through the evolution of ancient Chinese costume over thousands of years.
On display are about 130 pieces or sets of cultural relics, including jade, stone and bone artifacts, figurines, clothing, gold and silver accessories, painting and calligraphy works. The items provide a vivid depiction of people’s attire and related artistic views in ancient China from the pre-Qin period (pre-221 B.C.) to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
