August 31, 1999 – January 16, 2001

Museum: Arthur M. Sackler Gallery

Location: Pavilion, Street Level

On temporary view are 18 objects including a 3,000-year-old bronze bell, a 4,000-year-old jade disk, a marble sculpture of a bear, wine containers in animal shapes, and ceramic burial jars made to look like farm buildings. These objects constitute a tiny fraction of the more than 5,000 objects included in this collection. A full-scale exhibition and catalogue of the collection is currently being organized.
