Ancient gold in Henan

This post revisits some of the artifacts on display at the Henan Provincial museum; which is presently a shadow of itself, with the main building having been under renovations for at least the last two years.

Only one out-building is open, with displays of a fraction of the museum's artifacts, primarily showing cultural development in area influenced by Huang He. This is the oldest part of China.

Gold belt from the western Zhou dynasty, ca. 1000 BCE

First model of an Imperial Star Destroyer, for the movie, The Emperor rises in Guo State.

Gold and jewellery of the Ming dynasty

Of course, this is only a small fraction of what used to be on display.
