TOMB TREASURES
21.9.–23.8.2020

Tomb findings provide a lot of information about people’s lives, habits and religious beliefs. In ancient Chinese dynasties carefully designated rituals were carried out during burials and personal items of the deceased were placed in their tombs. Generously decorated tombs, including even thousands of items, were a sign of wealth and social status of the dead person. The items in the exhibition are from the Didrichsen Art Museum’s collection. The illustrations are by Ella Brigatti.

Tue–Sun 11–18  / Tickets : 14 / 12 / 0 € / Museum card
