With a collection of over 20,000, the cultural relics displayed in the Tang West Market Museum boast a long history ranging from the Shang Dynasty (16th -11th century BC) about three thousand years ago to the Qing Dynasty (AD 1636-1911). Various artifacts can be found here, including mysterious bronze wares, colorful porcelains, life-like clay figurines, shining gold and silver vessels, exquisite silks, delicate jade carvings, ancient coins, epitaphs, religious objects and architectural antiques. These collections are good reflection of profound Chinese culture and wisdom of ancient Chinese people. Great respect should be paid to the relic collectors as we appreciate the high value of the exhibits.
Zhu Guangqian, a famous aesthete, once said: “Art is the form of one’s temperament, which originates in real life.” The aim of collecting is to explore the profound meaning behind it. That is why we are more than happy to offer the carefully selected bronze wares, gold and silver vessels, ancient coins and elegant porcelain vessels to the visitors. We sincerely hope that such a cultural banquet can feast your heart, and that we can make friends by displaying and sharing these exquisite exhibits.
