Imperial Treasures of Chinese Art


Price: $ 39.95

The National Palace Museum in Taipei is the world's most spectacular showcase of Chinese art and antiquities.

Accumulated using all the resources available to Chinese emperors over the centuries, its collection enshrines the genius of imperial China's finest artists, scholars and craftsmen.

The treasures of the National Palace Museum are a precious heritage of human civilization. From rustically hewn stone carvings of high antiquity to exquisitely carved fruit stones; from elegantly restrained Song porcelain to colorful Qing decorated ware; whether serene Buddhist sculptures, lustrous jades, exotic enamelware, fascinating curio cabinets, or Shang and Zhou ritual bronzes, each has its own special place in China's cultural history.

Sit back and enjoy our six informative Theme Tours as they put Chinese art works and antiquities into context within Chinese cultural traditions. See how they weave art treasures together to illustrate ancient China's dining and drinking culture, explore mysterious animal designs on ritual vessels, display popular styles of dress and adornment, celebrate the refined amusements of the Chinese literary elite, and much more...
