THE GOLD OF CHINESE EMPERORS. Royal Gold Wares of Wanli Period, Ming Dynasty – Dong Bo Zhai Collection

Temporary exhibition
Open from 16 August 2018 to 15 February 2019 at the National Museum of Slovenia
 
The exhibition presents 145 gold items from the Dong Bo Zhai collection from Wanli period (1573-1620) of the Ming dynasty, which illuminate the knowledge of imperial gold crafts. Dong Bo Zhai is a private collection of the founder of the Quijiang Museum of Fine Arts in Xi’an, China. Jewellery, tableware, and other items of artistic merit show the social position of their owners, while depictions of dragons with five claws and phoenixes reveal connections with the imperial family. It is possible that these items belonged to the imperial court, or they may have been given to members of the Imperial family.
