These pictures of ancient China tell us a lot about their practices such as their trade, mathematics, and hierarchy of authority. But what amazes me is how historians can almost accurately order these chains of events shown in these paintings.

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, February 21, 2014 7:45 PM

I have always enjoyed art and Chinese art , like Japanese and Korean is very simple and intricate in detail. Like most other cultures though the art is not very indicative of daily life.

The Center is pleased to host Michael Knight, Senior Curator of Chinese Art at the Asian Art Museum, for an illustrated talk on the museum's current exhibit, "China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy (Feb. 22 - May 27, 2013). Along with more than 100 rare artifacts unearthed from the tomb of China's First Emperor, the Asian Art Museum presents some of the finest generals, archers, and infantrymen from the life-sized terracotta army. The exhibition paints the backdrop for the warriors' creation: the First Emperor's rise to power, his quest for immortality, and his complex legacy. Dr. Knight will present us with a survey of the objects in the exhibition and discuss some of the themes that are explored.

Patrick Kwong's curator insight, March 8, 2014 2:38 PM

This discussion on the 2 sides is pretty vague, as no specific time period or ruler was mentioned, which is important in the tides of battle. But it seems that China wins by majority because of their advances in weapons. Rome has a high chance though, with their industrial prowess and ability to adapt in war.

"Jade and bronze were the most prized materials in Ancient China. Jade was believed to have magical properties and to preserve the dead. "


Via ChrisGibson
Elizabeth Otis's insight:

This explains why so many things were made out of jade in ancient china. 

more...
Charlie Wittke's curator insight, February 13, 2014 7:24 PM

The reason Jade was and still is so popular in China is because the Chinese believe it had magical properties and that it preserved the dead. The silk the Chinese made was so popular but its production was kept a secret for a very long time.

Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:03 AM

Jade and bronze were important and popular materials in Ancient China. Who would have thought that Jade was used to preserve the dead. As for bronze, it was used to make weapons, ritual vessels, pots, bells, and mirrors.

The nature of art as a medium through which ideas are spread means it could either be appropriated or denounced by the government. As a political artist in China, one treads on thin ice.

There's a lot happening in this photo: some street art, an intriguing flavor of popsicle, cool sneakers, flammable substances near a lit cigarette, the Asian art of effortless squatting. Overall it's a very interesting street scene, captured by Flickr user marisoleta in Taipei, Taiwan. Looking at more of her photos, it seems like a fun destination, full of temples, tall buildings, and weird foods we all love to photograph on our travels. It's always great when a travel photo makes us want to learn more about a place......
