The exhibit features a total of 140 pieces and sets related to cultural treasures of the ancient Maritime Silk Road. The items on display include ceramics, paintings, calligraphy, books, gold and silverware, timepiece, scientific instruments, and weapons.

 

The Forbidden City and the Maritime Silk Road exhibition, staged at the West Wing of the Tower Gallery in Meridian Gate (Wu Men) of the Palace Museum, will be open until July 8, 2017.

 

The relics are mainly from the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, which were gifts from envoys and missionaries, tributes from officials, royal court’s purchases, and replicas made by ancient workshops. The relics were part of the Maritime Silk Road, which was a trade line and bond tying ancient China with other civilizations. The exhibit was designed to reflect China’s communication and interaction with the outside world.
