8. Everlasting Like the Heavens: The cultures and arts of the Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang
Tsinghua University Art Museum (Sep 10-Dec 17)
The past three months have seen the Tsinghua University Art Museum become a hot tourist destination in the Chinese capital as its special exhibition Everlasting Like the Heavens has attracted people from far and wide to view and marvel at the heart of ancient Chinese civilization.
Themed after "everlasting like the heavens", an auspicious Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) phrase, the show teamed up more than 300 top-quality artifacts on loan from a bevy of museums in Northwest China's Shaanxi province. Among them, 189 showpieces have been recognized as grade-one, or the highest-level cultural relics.
On view were bronzewares, jade pieces and paintings that reflect the essence of the ancient Zhou (c.11th century-256 BC), Qin (221-206 BC), Han and Tang (AD 618-907) dynasties.
