Exhibition of Cultural Relics from Mawangdui Han Tombs

Keywords: Han Dynasty, China, Changsha
Special subject

The excavation of the three tombs of the Western Han Dynasty (206-25 AD) from 1972 to 1974 at Mawangdui, Changsha, marks one of the major archaeological discoveries in the twentieth century. Over 3000 cultural relics and a well-preserved female corpse were unearthed. Among the relics uncovered were bright-colored lacquer wares representing the highest level of workmanship; fine silks showing amazingly accomplished weaving technique; silk paintings with romantic themes of the Kingdom of Heaven and the craving for eternity; and inscriptions on silk demonstrating knowledge and wisdom of the ancient sages. And the well-preserved female corpse is a miracle in human antisepsis.

These tombs at Mawangdui are regarded as an encyclopedia of the Western Han Dynasty (206-25 AD), touching many fields such as politics, economics, science and technology, culture, religion, customs and lifestyles. It’s a window to Chinese society 2100 years ago.
