Small Seals, Big World -Spectacular Exhibition of Ancient Seals from Xi'an Museum

Keywords: Xi'an, Ancient Seals, Small Seals

Seals, cultural relics in Chinese history, functioned mainly as identity credentials and symbols of exercising power. As early as in Shang and Zhou dynasties, seals came into being, based on potteries, bronze wares, jades and written characters. In the extensive and profound Chinese culture, seals have unique characteristics and positions and are attractive to the whole world.

The collection of seals in Xi’an Museum is various and large, coming up to some 800 pieces. These seals have covered almost all times, ranging from the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Period to late Qing Dynasty and early period of Republic of China. The exhibits are mostly from two main periods of seals’ development— dynasties of Qin and Han, and Ming and Qing. Materials are various, such as gold, bronze, jade, pottery, china, crystal, agate and so on. From the inscriptions upon them, it can be seen that the possessors of the seals were from all levels of society, including emperors, imperial princes and court ministers, and ordinary people as well.
