Description

This mini-exhibit uses the Oriental Institute's collections to highlight trade connections over land and sea between China and the Middle East, primarily the Silk Road trade route and Indian Ocean maritime trade. It focuses on Chinese ceramics found in archaeological excavations throughout the Middle East and shows how Chinese inventions inspired craft traditions in the Middle East, particularly the production of silk and paper.
