‘Age of Empires: Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties’
Almost all the objects in this exhibition, Ian Buruma writes in the NYR Daily, “lay buried for many centuries in tombs. That is why we can see perfectly preserved lacquer ware from a burial site in Sichuan, richly colored textiles from the far west of China, the body of Dou Wan, wife of Prince Jing, encased in a suit made of jade, and much more. And all these are more than two thousand years old.”
