Exhibits on show include an elaborately patterned jar of the qinghua (blue and white) type from the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). Yuan qinghua porcelains are among the best-known and sought-after Chinese works of art in the world, often fetching high prices at auctions. One exhibit, found in Guangxi in 1980, is depicted with elegant twining peonies and a vivid scene of General Yuchi Gong saving Li Shimin, the founding emperor of Tang Dynasty (618-907).

The exhibition is one of the several shows just opened at a new building at the museum, which opened to the public in late November.
