"Driving out from Beijing at three in the morning, passing the Great Wall at dawn. It is very cold. But underground, on the walls of the Liao dynasty tombs we visit, vibrant color and lively figures give warmth. A child climbs to grab fruit from a bowl, a woman pauses in a doorway, sprigs of flowers are painted on a tomb's dome, musicians play. The tomb objects from the ninth to the twelfth centuries in this exhibition are depicted on the walls of such chambers. Objects such as fine ceramic pots and bowls, tea services, and furniture present a story of daily life among people of the Liao and Song dynasties and how they thought of themselves. This is the first exhibition in the United States to present Liao culture in context." excerpt from the introduction by Susan Fillin-Yeh.
