This installation, which explores the cultural importance of silk in China, showcases the most important and unusual textiles from the Museum's collection. In addition to three rare pieces dating from the Tang dynasty (618–906), the exhibition also includes eleventh- and twelfth-century tapestries from Central Asia and contemporaneous Chinese examples of this technique; spectacular embroideries; theatrical garments; court costumes; and early examples of badges worn at court to designate rank.
